If they charged these people, others wouldn't be as quick to rally on the streets. They'd be cautious and be more aware of what they put out there.

I'd say these protesters are going too far. They disrespected The Virgin Mary and religious people would push for them to be punished. Hate crimes shouldn't be tolerated.

It is disrespectful. They should have known that people would hate them for it. They need to be punished for going overboard.

They have their freedom of speech. People should be allowed to protest and express themselves. People need to be heard and this is their way of speaking out.

Spain is a very religious country and they should have known better. Using the vagina disrespected the Virgin Mary. They have ruffled a lot of Catholic feathers and they won't go unpunished for their deeds.

It's good they're letting people see that they can't get away with it. Let this one pass and protesters would get worse.

Everybody has a right to free speech. Regardless of content I believe.

It is their right to protest. Too bad their government is way too conservative.

People are allowed to protest about what is important to them. It shouldn't matter their gender or their cause. Change happens when concerned people bring it to the public's awareness.

People have a right to freedom of speech. They wouldn't protest for nothing. They should be given the chance to air their issues.

Well said. People won't know the issues if nobody speaks up.

Freedom is speech is a basic right and it shouldn't be curbed no matter where you are in the world. This is the one right that everyone should fight for.

I agree. People have forgotten this basic right.

I agree. People have forgotten this basic right.
Unfortunately, not everyone in the world can enjoy this basic right. This is why the UN should pursue and convince the other nations that this is in their best interest.

It's sad that at this day and age that there are still people who do not have these basic rights that we enjoy. This is why we should cherish and appreciate it more and not take it for granted.

If a leader really wants what is best for their country, they shouldn't be afraid to allow free speech.
