Young People Beaten For Praying At World Youth Day By Protestors

    In Madrid during WORLD YOUTH DAY there was no lack of twisted, benighted wing-nut protesters harassing the pilgrims and young people. I recall when I attended the Word  Youth Day in Canada, a woman drove up to us stark naked, so that she could shock us. None of us reacted and she drove off.  That was  a few years ago. Now look what is happening.

    World Youth Day 2012 Begins Today

    Young people are experiencing severe bias while in Spain. One young woman shared her experience on her Facebook page.Read what she said:

    We had been wandering Madrid all day, chillin
    The boys were wearing their kilts so we got stopped for photos many times
    One guy who stopped us said there was an anti Catholic protest in Sol so we went to check it out
    There was this HUGE crowd of people so Seamus & Louise didn´t want to come check it out with us, they sat at a corner
    We went in and people were shouting filthy slurs and cursing the Pope and it was awful
    So we knelt down and prayed a Rosary for them in the crowd and got surrounded by angry protesters, shouting and threatening and spitting and filming us and mocking us and trying to burn our flags.
    A gay couple came and made out in front of us but whatever
    Anyway, Dominic made us stand up because he felt threatened so we finished our Rosary standing but on the last decade, a fight broke out right next to us between the Catholics who had been standing behind us and and the protesters so some of the other Catholics lead us out of the crowd.
    We went back and dropped our bags with Louise and this time Mim stayed back so it was just Me & Dominic & Greg & Billy who went back and prayed a second rosary on the side of the crowd and we got more of the same, people getting up in our faces screaming
    We were met with a couple more of Juventutem but they left after we finished our second Rosary before one had an emotional breakdown.
    Everyone left but the group I just mentioned above and we chanted BENEDICTO, BENEDICTO and VIVA PAPA and waved our Papal flag and so on up against the police line
    Lots of people yelled at us still
    Then, the police line broke and they charged at us and we had to run for our lives a little more urgently than after our Rosary
    Then the riot police came out and beat the ___ out of the protesters
    At least one guy lost a WYD pilgrim from his group in the crowd and a lot of medics showed up… A lot of people got lost & hurt

    The cops wouldnt let us take the metro there so we went off to find a pub

    That´s BASICALLY what happened

    How horrific an ordeal that these young people had to go through. This is sad,especially since all they were doing was praying.
