Bishop of Huelva joins the campaign and stirs up the left

Date: October 2, 2022 Time: 20:13:41

The Bishop of Huelva, Santiago Gómez Sierra, during a mass in El Rocío, a place where several candidates for the Council were present these days, broadcast by Canal Sur, entered the campaign with a sometimes reactionary speech in which he called for voting “in accordance with the Christian faith.” Gómez Sierra listed a number of ideas, some of which are similar to those defended by right-wing and far-right parties, while others are not. The bishop’s intervention, as it spread through social media like wildfire, stirred up the left.

“On June 19, the Andalusians were called to elect our representatives to the regional parliament. Catholics vote for different parties, but we must all consider the similarity or incompatibility of our moral principles with the projects, programs and actions of each of them. “, he said, according to the Huelva Information newspaper.

Then he recalled that “in this consistency with the Christian faith, it is necessary to respect the right to human life, inviolable from conception to natural death; recognition, development and support of the family as a lasting union between a man and a woman, open life; protecting the right of parents to raise their children in accordance with their moral and religious convictions; respect for the dignity of every person, freedom of religion, spiritual values ​​and rejection of conscience; protection and assistance are the weakest in society, such as the elderly, the youth, the unemployed and immigrants.”

“We appeal,” the bishop added, “to moral principles accessible to reason, because there are questions that should not be the subject of various party strategies, but are questions required by the law of nature, reason, true humanism.”


Ángeles Ferris, Deputy Secretary General of the Andalusian PSOE, tweeted: “What barbarism… El Rocío too? for them…”

Por Andalucía candidate Inma Nieto said: “Canal Sur publishes a statement from the Bishop of Huelva in support of the right and the extreme right. Rally of homophobes against women’s rights or the right to a dignified death. Rally Andalusia in black and white, which we are going to avoid on 19J”.

Teresa Rodríguez of Adelante Andalusia wrote: “A meeting for the rights of the Bishop of Huelva in El Rocío, broadcast on the Sur channel, against the right to abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, secular schools, contraceptives and family planning.” I hope that it is included in the TV quota of PP and Vox.”

In another tweet, Rodriguez added: “But make no mistake in the Spanish press, El Rocío is much more than religion and the Curia. It is part of our identity and belongs to everyone who wants to be part of it, even if they are from the left, homosexuals, feminists or secularists. Have a nice Romería del Rocío… tod@s!”
