Berlusconi voices pride in playboy image

Catholic World News - October 29, 2010

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who has been severely criticized in Catholic publications because of frequent flirtations with young women, has announced that he has no plans to adopt a quieter social life. “No one can get me to change my lifestyle,” said the defiant Italian leader.

The mass-circulation weekly La Famiglia Cristiana was the latest Catholic publication to chide Berlusconi for his playboy antics: “It is incredible that a man in such a position does not have the necessary self-control, and his entourage stands by.”
