Willy Toledo is facing prosecution and fines... ... 73794.html
"I shit on God and I have plenty of shit to shit on the dogma of the sanctity and virginity of the Virgin Mary," Toledo wrote on Facebook

Hardly a matter for legal proceedings. I hear worse than that in the street or on a bus. Simply venting is against Spanish law never mind political self-determination.

Apparently, it is proving very difficult to leave the Roman Catholic Church in Spain. Every parish receives two and a half Euros from the Spanish government for every parishioner. First you have to get a letter from "your" priest. Then you have to send it to central government. Eventually you should get a reply and the money is stopped. However, recently I have heard reports that the process isn't working and, in practice, it simply isn't worth the problems invovled in leaving the Parish congregation. The priests don't care if people attend the chapel or not, but they do care that they get the cash and that people are leaving or not supporting the RC Church.
