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.
