Someone spray-painted “Shame On You Bagnasco” on the Roman Catholic cathedral in Genoa, Italy, on April 2 after Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, head of the Italian Conference of Catholic Bishops, likened gay relationships to incest and pedophilia.
“Why say ‘no’ to forms of legally recognized cohabitation which create alternatives to the family?” he asked. “Why say ‘no’ to incest? Why say ‘no’ to the pedophile party in Holland?”
The remarks came shortly after the bishops conference instructed Catholic members of Parliament to vote against Italy’s pending civil-union legislation.
Reports said Bagnasco is now traveling with a police escort for fear that angry gays might attack his person in addition to his cathedral.
