Gays in Spain stage kiss-in to protest Pope’s visit

Barcelona:Pope Benedict XVI strongly defended traditional families and the rights of the unborn on Sunday, directly attacking Spanish laws that allow gay marriage, fast-track divorce and easier abortions as he dedicated Barcelona’s iconic church, the Sagrada Familia.
As he headed to the church named for the sacred family, about 200 gays and lesbians staged a ‘kiss-in’ to protest his
visit and church policies on homosexuals, condom use and a host of other issues.
As Benedict inaugurated the church’s main altar, he railed against same-sex marriage and divorce, saying families are built on the “indissoluble love of a man and a woman” who should be provided with financial and social benefits from governments.
He criticized policies allowing for abortions, saying “the life of children (must) be defended as sacred and inviolable from the moment of their conception.” In his homily, Benedict again called for the West to embrace God and shun secular trends. He said the dedication of the Sagrada Familia church was of great importance in the present day. AP
