The Vatican has decided issues pertaining to abortion or homosexuality are the most critical facing humanity. On the eve of a vote in Ireland on future relations with the European Union, the Vatican has thrown its support in favor of a “no” vote on the Lisbon Treaty. According to Cardinal Bertone, “the EU prescribes its laws or view to them, and they do not have to fit with their traditions and history. Some countries are logically resisting this-for example, Ireland.” Naturally, the most important issue to the Cardinal was, “if Europe recognized homosexual couples as equal to marriage for example, it would go against its own history. And it would be right to stand against it. The church wants to encourage states in this.”
I wonder where the Vatican was when George Bush launched a war based on lies. Didn’t his war policies violate American traditions? Of course, if Bush had been pushing homosexuality, you can bet the Vatican would enter into the debate.
