Intimidation prompts cancellation of weekly Mass on Spanish campus
Catholic World News - January 26, 2011
The University of Barcelona has decided to stop scheduling a Mass on campus every Wednesday until security measures can be adopted to protect Catholic worshipers from a small but aggressive group of "secular progressive" protesters.
The protests, organized by a group of about 40 anti-Catholic students and faculty members, are termed "boycotts," but actually have involved assaults on the students attending the weekly Mass. University officials had been screening those who entered the chapel, asking them to identify themselves as Catholics, but the aggressive protests continued, forcing the school to take stronger measures.
