FURIOUS Spaniards are accusing the Roman Catholic Church of seizing more 1,000 public buildings to profit from their use.
A Pamplona protest group has released a pamphlet entitled Thou Shalt Not Steal denouncing the church’s actions.
A law passed in 1998 allows the church to register places of worship without owning the title deeds.
The protesters claim the church is using the law to pocket millions from entrance fees, with some town halls paying the church to return buildings to public ownership.
Buildings that have been registered include the mosque-cathedral in Cordoba, the Giralda in Sevilla and the cathedral in Pamplona.
