Vatican paper compares gay-marriage proponents to communists

< Previous Page

While socialism tried to realize this utopia through the abolition of private property and social differences, Scaraffia is convinced that today another "difference that defines humanity" is under threat — the one between man and woman.

For her, many people are coming round to accept the Vatican’s point. "In France," she said, "the church has become a reference point for all those who oppose gay marriage, be they secular or religious."

Scaraffia was also adamant that the church’s opposition to gay marriage cannot be labeled as discrimination. "The Vatican has often intervened against discrimination for gay people. But many people don’t want to see it; they just want to pin it down as homophobic."
