Students Protest at University Chapel in Madrid; Shout Insults Against Cath. Church, Pope, Priests

The Catholic News Agency website reports today (March 15, 2011) that some 70 college students -- mostly female -- stormed into the chapel of Madrid's Complutense University on March 10, shouting insults against the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, and priests.

Several females from the group stood undressed on the altar.

A woman, who was in the chapel praying at the time, said that two of the young women on the altar "boasted about their homosexual tendencies."

The Archdiocese of Madrid released a statement saying, "These actions are an attack of freedom of worship and a profanation of a sacred place, which carries with it canonical penalties for any baptized parties who took part."
