Religious extremism in Puebla: Archbishop acts like fascist thugs

This is about as extreme as it gets, given that the bigotry is promoted by none less than the archdiocese of Puebla: In San Rafael Tlanalapan Wednesday, 50 catholic extremists gathered outside a christian evangelist chapel to threaten the worshipers with lynching(!). Why this anger and hatred? Because they want to construct a church in a predominantly catholic area.

Yet what is the response of the archbishop? To give full backing to Ascensión Benítez González, the priest leading the mob, deny that he is advocating any religious intolerance at all, but that the congregation is simply using its "freedom of expression."

This is the face of the archdiocese of Puebla in 2012: Clerical fascism.
