Juan Antonio Reig, the controversial Bishop of Alcalá de Henares, has lashed out at the last Holy Mass of the year against homosexuality, abortion and immigrants, and he has done it before the cameras of TVE, which precisely retransmitted the act live through La 2.
Among other sermons, Reig has pointed out that "to deny the sexual difference and the importance of the family is to opt for an atomized society, of simple individuals" and has added that "the loving union of man and woman is the only sacred truth its natural nature ". In this line, the bishop has also charged against contraceptives, labeling them as a "malice" that reduces the conjugal union "to the simple desires of the spouses".
Reig argues that the progressive policies that "unfortunately" Spain has experienced in recent years, "break the Catholic traitorship and the family." In that sense, he has emphasized the laws of abortion, which, in his opinion, have plunged the country into a "severe demographic winter" that has caused "more than two million Spaniards not to have been born".
The bishop of Alcalá has also had words contrary to immigration, when he pointed out that "Christian families are "Resistance units" and referred to immigration policies as a "propitiated multiculturalism".
