Italian bishops join in condemning EU resolution on homophobia

.- The Bishops’ Conference of Italy has joined the Spanish bishops in condemning a resolution of the EU Parliament on homophobia en Europe.  The bishops of Spain issued a statement condemning the resolution during their gathering in Madrid on May 11.

During the opening address at the Italian bishops’ meeting in Rome May 15-19, Conference president Cardinal Camillo Ruini stated, “The European Parliament continues to issue statements that do not respect the principle of subsidiarity, the culture and traditions proper to the different member states, and that seriously contrast with fundamental anthropological truths.”

“We can mention as an example the case of the January 18 resolution on homophobia in Europe, which rightly calls for the elimination of discrimination, mistreatment and violence against persons with homosexual tendencies, but which also calls for putting the rights of same-sex unions on the same level as those of legitimate families, asking that member states modify their national laws,” Cardinal Ruini said.

“The Bishops’ Conferences of Poland and Spain have already spoken out against this resolution,” he continued.  “We unite our voices to theirs.”
