Theologians `sacked'

THREE leading Spanish theologians have been removed from their teaching and writing posts in recent weeks, in what several progressive churchmen have dubbed a "purge of dissidents" by the country's church authorities.

Frs Castillo and Estrada, both professors at the theology faculty of the Jesuit-run University of Granada, and Fr Benjamin Forcano, a Claretian who edits the magazine Open Mission, have lost their posts. Fr Forcano also teaches sexual morality at a Spanish university.

The three have been guilty of abuses, a church spokesman said this week, and have been dealt with in accordance with Vatican guidelines.
