Vatican Resistance to Gender Ideology
#1
The Vatican has registered opposition to proposed legislation against “homophobia” in Italy, invoking the rights of the Holy See under the 1929 Lateran Treaty.

Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Secretary for Relations with States, sent a diplomatic message to the Italian ambassador, remarking that the legislation could force Catholic schools to promote gender ideology, and could make it illegal to articulate the teachings of the Church on sexuality.

The archbishop’s letter included an unprecedented reference to the rights granted to the Holy See under the Lateran Treaty, under which “Catholics and their associations and organizations are guaranteed full freedom of assembly and expression of thought by word, writing and any other means of dissemination.”

There is push back from the Italian government;

In response to a formal protest from the Holy See to the draft of an anti-homophobia law on grounds of religious freedom, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi Wednesday evening said Italy is a secular state and as such, can decide on its own whether a proposed legislation is constitutional.

Speaking to members of the Senate’s upper chamber during a scheduled June 23 address, Draghi said that Italy “is a lay state, a lay state, so it’s not a confessional state,” meaning that the Italian parliament “is free” and able to deliberate, discuss, and draw its own conclusions.

What will be interesting is if the vatican stands firm. If concessions are not made to the church, then this could result in an international affair, as it would be an issue between two separate nations and the potential violation of an international treaty.

Also, Italy is a a lay state, but Catholicism is still a national identity. If the state is seen as attacking the church, it would be interesting to see the political fall out in the 2023 elections.
