ITALY: CARDINAL RUINI, "THE REASONS WHY THE HOMOSEXUAL UNION CANNOT BE SOCIALLY ACKNOWLEDGED"

” “Moreover, by analysing "the reality of civil unions concretely", Cardinal Ruini stated that "the number of unions between people of different sexes is certainly increasing, though it is still much more limited with respect to other countries, but the great majority of those unions are living with a view to a possible future marriage, or they prefer to remain in an anonymous position, in absence of links". As for "the rather less numerous homosexual couples, – he then pointed out, – most of them, in turn, wish to remain a solely private and reserved fact; on the other hand, other couples seem to make up the main motor placing pressure on the legal acknowledgement of civil unions, through which they might possibly pave the way for marriage". At this point, the president of the Italian bishops said that "though fully and duly respecting the dignity and the rights of every person, it must nevertheless be pointed out that such claim is in contrast with the fundamental anthropological data, and in particular, there is no goodness for the children generation, which is the specific reason for the social acknowledgement of marriage". ” “
