Belgian Senator Wants Belgium Officially Be Opposed To Pope Benedict's Anti-Gay Remarks

Written by 

Nele Lijnen

After the homophobe remarks of the pope Benedict, a Belgian senator wants her country protests officially by the means of the higher representative of the church of the Belgium Giacinto Berloco.

A few days ago, Pope Benedict xvi reproached countries for granting rights to the LGBT community.

Faced with these remarks, a Belgian senator, Nele Lijnen was shocked: "These statements are not the first and seem to be part of a continuously unjustified treatment of people with a homosexual orientation. Such statements strongly contrast with the basic values of the Church, which plead in favor of the tolerance and the love of one's neighbour."

She wants a "clear standpoint of the government faced with the continual attacks of the Vatican against gays, lesbians and bisexuals."

Belgium legalized the gay marriage in 2003 and allows the adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
