Spanish Clergyman Marcos Zapata Targeted For "Investigation" And "Legal Action" For Holding Seminars On Rehabilitating Homosexuals

Foreword: If you think the homosexual rights agenda is merely about "tolerance", think again. In much of Europe and in Canada, the homosexual agenda now enjoys statutory protection in much the same manner as the official version of the Jewish Holocaust. In Spain, it is apparently no longer legal to publicly disagree with homosexuality, as a Protestant minister is now finding out.

A Spanish clergyman is to be investigated after complaints that he is holding seminars which aim to "rehabilitate homosexuals". Protestant minister Marcos Zapata, head of an organisation running youth centres for troubled children in Galicia, prompted the row after reports surfaced of a recent seminar he led entitled "How to Raise Heterosexual Children". Full story published December 28th, 2007 in the U.K. Guardian.

According to a journalist who attended the seminar, Zapata likened homosexuality to alcoholism and called it an illness, but said healing was possible through family therapy. In his family, he said, he reinforces masculine roles by watching professional wrestling with his two sons. Zapata also advised the audience to "hug your sons as much as you can, because if you don't, perhaps another man will". [Ed. Note: The truth of this latter statement is starkly revealed in a 32-page PDF report entitled "Homosexual Behavior and Pedophilia", published back in 2000. This report illustrates how some homosexual activists are using the gay rights movement as a stalking horse to promote pedophilia by advocating the lowering and even the outright elimination of age of consent laws.]

Yesterday (Dec. 27) the Galician regional government said it would investigate Zapata to make sure the youth centres his organisation runs do not employ "any type of proselytising or homophobic attitudes" when dealing with minors. Spain's gay and lesbian groups are planning legal action.

"After so many legal victories in this country, and for the first time people are talking openly about homosexuality in schools, we have to deal with fundamentalist groups which take us back to the Franco dictatorship," said Toni Poveda, the president of the National Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals. "And of course we are going to try to stop this from happening. Sexual orientation is innate and there's no way to change it." [Ed. Note: Even if this statement is true, what's the justification for punishing those who express disagreement with it?]

Despite progress against "discrimination" in Spain, several websites promote similar methods for "exorcising" homosexuality. ("Change is possible") is run by Grupo Juan Pablo II, a lay group in Cadiz in southern Spain.

Commentary: This is exactly why pro-family activists can no longer compromise on this issue. When the gay rights lobby first got started, all they claimed they wanted was "tolerance". Now, they've hijacked words like "gay" and "pride", have gone after marriage and the Boy Scouts, demanded public subsidization of the practice through awarding "spousal benefits" to the domestic partners of gay public employees. And anyone who disagrees with them is not merely different, but portrayed as an evil "homophobe". Heck, just this past week, in the Flashlight section of the Anchorage Press, a local nancy-boy expressed unhappiness about my attitude towards homosexuality as expressed on this blog. So be it.

As pro-family activists, we can no longer allow the battle to be fought on the gay lobby's terms. We must seize the high ground back from them and fight them on OUR terms. We must not shrink from the label "homophobic"; it is merely a term they use to hornswoggle us into censoring ourselves. We should follow the example of noted San Diego pro-family activist James Hartline, who has endured untold abuse from the San Diego gay rights lobby and their enablers in the political plutocracy. He's attacked them head on, and has emerged the stronger.

And finally, remember that our battle is not against the individual gay person who keeps it a personal issue, but against those who politicize the issue and force it upon the general public.

  1. "nancy-boy"? if you want to be taken as an articulate commentator then you ought to know of which you speak instead of throwing names around. i didn't call you a "homophobe," like you claim in your post, or a bigot; those things are apparent from your writings - i'd think you'd let the readers decide if it's apparent i'm a "nancy-boy." i'm a white straight gentile guy like you pretend to represent and speak for; i'm just not a bigot. but really dude, if you want to call me out dispense with the names and stick to what i bust out on the keyboard.
