Mr. Ratzinger's recent outing of gays goes together with his tirade on Spain's "statolatria," a neologism that combines "state" and "idolatry" that describes Zapatero's alleged indoctrination of Spanish youth with layman values instead of Church-approved "values."

"Statolatria" was first used by the Vatican against Mussolini despite Mussolini's early closet alliance with the Church to iron out their involvement in the Banca di Roma scandal (one of the greatest Italian monetary scandals of all times, paid off by the masses as always). After the Laterenese Pacts, the Church put the word "statolatria" on hold until now.

How awful.  The idolatry of the state replacing the idolatry of the Church.  But at least citizens have rights and votes.  Remind me, what do "the laity" have?
