Aggressive secularism? Faith trying to crawl back into Spain once again.

Don't know where I should put this but I'll put it here seeing as it's concerning politics and   

This was the main point of a speech given by the Pope today on a trip to Spain. Now Spain, a largely Catholic country, has made attempts in recent years to secularize, including legalizing gay marriage, abortion and also ending compulsory religious education in schools. 
  The Pope drew parallels between this and the reign of General Franco in the 1930s, where he claims began a strong 'anti-clericial' bent in Spanish society. 


  Seriously, what is the Pope trying to get at here? What on earth can he mean by aggressive secularism? Is this just another example of religion trying to enter politics?
