Italy: Vatican Colonialism and Cowardice of Politicians

Interviewed by Repubblica, commenting on New York’s legalization of same-sex marriage, philosopher Gianni Vattimo, MEP, believer, gay activist, was very clear: “Italy is the problem for Europe. It’s not the fault of the Italians, but it’s because of Vatican colonialism and the cowardice of politicians.”

Vattimo attacked the Catholic Church also for its claim that its doctrine is “natural law”, not only about same-sex unions, but also about bioethics, end of life, divorce.

According to the Italian philosopher, despite the majority of Italians support human rights, politicians prefer not to lose the vote and influence of bishops and parish priests.
