The Cañizares Case in Spain is a Litmus Test for Pope Francis 0

As has been recently reported in several media outlets, Antonio Cardinal Cañizares Llovera, the Archbishop of Valencia, Spain, is now under harsh attack from feminist, homosexual, and other progressive groups for having defended the traditional family and for accusing the promoters of gender ideology and of the “gay empire” of attacking the family. Cañizares said the following, for example, in a homily on 13 May, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima:
We have [cumulative]legislation contrary to the family, the acts of political and social forces, to which are added movements and acts by the gay empire, by ideologies such as radical feminism – or the most insidious of all – gender ideology.
As Crux reports, “Spain, generally considered one of the world’s most gay-friendly [sic]nations, has had, since 1996, anti-discrimination [sic]laws including penalties for ‘hate speech.’”
In a case similar to that of the Swiss Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur – who had been sued (though without success) in 2015 by homosexual groups and persons for quoting Old Testament passages against homosexuality and thus for allegedly calling for the actual killing of homosexuals – the Spanish cardinal is being now threatened with a law suit.
