Italy: UDC Party Leader Compares Marriage Equality to Pedophilia

Written by scott on February 7th, 2013

RomeThe leader of one of Italy’s largest political parties, Pier Ferdinando Casini, is making waves with a statement comparing gay marriage to pedophilia. Gay Star News reports:

Speaking on national radio, Casini said: ‘On gay marriage we can not follow Europe. Some northern countries have given voice to movements campaigning for pedophilia. ‘I have a lot of gay friends and I know that they need some rights. But we can not allow same-sex marriage, this sacred moment is possible only between a man and a woman.’

This comes on the heels of Prime Minister Monti’s quick backtracking on marriage equality and Ex-PM Berlusconi’s unexpected “support”.
