Protesters camp at the Puerta del Sol square in Madrid

The question comes it up, because now that the Holy Father is visiting Spain, to celebrate World Youth Day, scheduled until August 21, retrograde people can not see that there is a youth who enjoys helping others. It is,, some rotten minds, need to see youth in acrimony or Smite to windows and giving people.

Youth from around the world, but I also see people not so young. But all under the "umbrella" of Christ.

Figures dizzy: 800 bishops, 8,000 priests, said that more than half a million attendees at the inaugural Mass celebrated by Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, many people, a lot. But that offends both the laity, not all.

There has been a march on August 17, against the Pope's visit, with the slogan "From my taxes, pope zero", according to media, they say one thing or another, a number or another about 5,000 attendees. My friends told me I could see by video conference outbursts and bad taste of these "secular". These "peaceful" demonstrators displayed crucifixes condoms against some pilgrims wore. When police began to evacuate the Puerta del Sol square, were bottles and shouting "murderers", "murderers." On the other hand it seems that at times people had strokes, although manifested itself in the plan were peaceful.

This call should end in the Plaza de Tirso de Molina, which agreed with the Delegation of the Government, which is where it started, but some did not want to understand that the agreement must be met, and barricaded themselves or sought in one of the doors Entry to the Plaza Puerta del Sol

There was a slogan that caught my attention "Less religion and more education." My motto is to "more religious and less misinformation."

Against insults and outbursts and tasteless, the pilgrims have chanted "Benedict, Benedict" and "Viva il Papa."

At the end of the demonstration held there are 8 and 11 minor injuries.

Question Why do not people want to understand that their rights end where others' begin?
