Spain is a lapsed Catholic country as well as a lapsed democracy

Monedero & Iglesias
Or so says Spanish political scientist Juan Carlos Monedero Fernández-Gala 

In a sardonic interview published in today's  El Mundo newspaper, Monedero was asked why so many atheists believe in Pablo Iglesias (the leader of the new and increasingly popular crowdfunded political party Podemos) and so many believers do not? His reply:

"We're a lapsed Catholic country, just as we're a lapsed democratic country."
