Vatican paper attacks gays

Herald Sun


THE Vatican newspaper says homosexuality risked "destabilising people and society", had no social or moral value and could never match the importance of a relationship between a man and a woman.

The remarks were contained in a long commentary published yesterday to accompany the official release of a long-awaited document that restricted the access of homosexual men to the Roman Catholic priesthood.
The article by Monsignor Tony Anatrella, a French Jesuit and psychologist, said homosexuality could not be considered an acceptable moral alternative to heterosexuality.
