Italia and Lithuania are Against Gay Marriages


08/26/2015


Hierarch of the Catholic Church criticized the plans of the Italian authorities to adopt a law on civil unions aimed at protecting the rights of sexual minorities.



In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco of Genoa called rights of the family and the rights of other types of relationships "different realities". He stressed that the rights of gays are fully protected under the current legislation.

In July, the European Court of Human Rights demanded from Italy to legalize same-sex unions in response to the complaint of several homosexual couples.

In turn, a government source said that the relevant law will have been issued by the end of 2015.

Recall that on July 22, the Speaker of the Seimas of Lithuania Loreta Grauzhinene stated that Lithuanian society is not ready to legitimize the "partnership" between persons of the same sex.

- Our society is not yet mature for such an action, - said the head of the parliament on Wednesday in an interview with radio station Ziniu radijas.

According to Grauzhinene, such decisions can be taken when more tolerant new generation is mature.

- I think that our dear elderly people, who do not understand such things, are worthy of respect, and I do not think you have to tease our society, - said the speaker of the ruling party of labor.

Great response in Lithuania received the European Court of Human Rights’s explanation that Italy violated the European Convention of Human Rights, where the Italian court has not given any recognition of same-sex couples.

Grauzhinene believes that judicial decisions "should not be forced in states that are not ready."

A group of social democrats and liberals offer legitimizing same-sex partnership in Lithuania, but analysts predict that such an initiative will not receive support in the Seimas.
