IS THE POPE BACKING FASCISM IN SPAIN?
"On his way to Santiago, Benedict told reporters that the anticlericalism
seen now in Spain was reminiscent of the 1930s, when the church suffered a
wave of violence and persecution as the country lurched from an unstable
democracy to civil war. The reference was striking given the scale of
violence back then, when the Roman Catholic Church claims that 4,184
clergy members were killed by the government, or Republican, side, which
accused it of backing Franco’s fascist dictatorship."
