  • Europe's secular trend has deeply disturbed the Vatican, which was angered recently when Rocco Buttiglione, an Italian friend of Pope John Paul II's, had to withdraw his candidacy for European Union justice commissioner last month after making what were perceived to be derogatory remarks about homosexuals and single mothers.

  • Juan Antonio Martinez Camino, spokesman for the Spanish Bishops Conference, said on television last month that allowing homosexual marriage was akin to "imposing a virus on society."

  • The Spanish public — like most of its European counterparts — does not seem to agree.

In a separate poll, 61.5 percent said they had "little or no trust in the Catholic Church."
