Rome's mayor chides party ally on gay-rights opposition December 27, 2007

The mayor of Rome has criticized a prominent Catholic political leader for opposing gay-rights legislation.

In an open letter to the newspaper La Stampa Mayor Walter Veltroni chided Dr. Paola Binetti for her resistance against legislation that would bar discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Veltroni is the leader of Italy's new Democratic party (PD). Binetti is a leading member of the same party's teodem wing, which upholds Christian moral principles.

“Homosexuality is a human condition," Veltroni argued in his letter to La Stampa, "and the PD is working to recognize the rights of homosexual couples.”
