Homosexual movement in Spain
Navarro Valls says Spanish president leading the country in wrong direction
Former spokesman for JPII calls country's promotion of homosexual unions contrary to the rest of the world

.- The former director of the Holy See Press Office, Joaquin Navarro Valls, warned this week that by promoting homosexual unions, Spanish President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero is leading that country down a path contrary to the rest of the world, which is rediscovering “the permanent and heterosexual nature of marriage.”

“32 states in the US have established that marriage consists of a union between one man and one woman, and Lithuania has just enshrined that in its Constitution.  Not to mention Latin America, Asia, or Africa.  In other places there is a rediscovery of the permanent and heterosexual nature of marriage,” he told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera.

Navarro Valls also denied recent rumors in the media that John Paul II refused further medical treatments before he died.  “I think the death of John Paul II was the most transparent death of any public personality.  The Pope chose to remain at the Vatican because the same medical equipment was there as at a hospital, and the Pope never said, ‘Enough’.”

Navarro Valls has just announced he will take a new post at the Biomedical University outside Rome, in a move he described as “a return to my professional roots as a doctor.”
