Italian cardinal: 'If you teach kids not to bully gays, you’ll corrupt them'

Archbishop of Genoa has responded to the Italian government's campaign to stamp out homophobia in schools after a series of high profile deaths and suicides
Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco has accused schools of brainwashing children into believing being gay is ok.

An Italian cardinal wants parents to fight schools' efforts to prevent anti-gay bullying, saying they are 'brainwashing' kids into being LGBTI friendly.

Archbishop of Genoa Angelo Bagnasco likened anti-homophobia state education in Italy to a totalitarian dictatorship.

He also said the efforts were turning schools into ‘indoctrination and re-education camps’.

In a speech this week published by the Italian bishops’ newspaper Avvenire, Bagnasco slammed the recently announced government pamphlets in schools aiming to teach children about love and diversity.

But this solution to ‘homophobic bullying’, Bagnasco says, is in fact designed to brainwash children to have ‘preconceptions against the family, parenthood, religious faith and the difference between fathers and mothers.’

The cardinal has urged parents to take a stand and not be ‘intimidated’.

‘Parents must defend their children against gender ideology,’ he insisted. ‘It is a grave duty of society - at all levels and forms - not to corrupt the youth with ideas and examples that no father and mother would want for their children.’

On 20 March, the government announced a planned day of diversity training for teachers would be postponed to a later date following outrage from church officials.

The anti-homophobia campaign follows a series of high profile murders and suicides among young people in Italy.

It is believed the Italian government has budgeted €10 million ($13.8m) for its fight against homophobia in schools.

Anti gay concept or protest is widely spread all over the world; but we still found people under gay community. In Italy also we have found Italian cardinal wants parents to prevent anti gay bullying; mostly parents are the well wisher and give proper guidance to their kids. Therefore they should teach better lessons to their kids in terms of sex ideology.

If you need to get good treatment for less val, purchasing online Vermox usage is reasonable. As vermifugal, Mebendazole causes degenerative alterations in the skin and intestinal cells of the worm by connecting to the colchicine-sensitive site of tubulin, and so inhibiting its polymerization or connection into microtubules. The ruin of the cytoplasmic microtubules leads to depressed uptake of glucose by the larval and matured stages of the worms, and depletes their glycogen stores. In the next is the most considerable leaflet on possible regular adverse effects of Vermox. These side effects usually do not happen, but they can. Because each kid reacts differently to a medication. Be delighted and also take into account that the side effects in class and periodicity depending on the dosage form of a drug.

Medic reviewed Albendazole consumer data - includes Albendazole write-up, dosage and directions. Next you will find out directions on interactions in the work of Albenza in general - http://imedsdiscount.com/2014/03/what-is-elephantiasis/ , during pregnancy and lactation and in children. Note that the indications depending on dosing form of a drug eg, tablet, solution may be different. Coadministration of anti-worm agent praziquantel multiplies plasma values of Albenza and thus its effect. This also applies to the H2-receptor blocker cimetidine and dexamethasone from the type of glucocorticoids. Albendazole also has been shown to inhibit the enzyme fumarate reductase, which is worm-specific. This result may be considered second-hand to the effect on the microtubules adequate to the decreased suction of glucose. Keep Albenza at normal temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F. Do not handle near warm up, moisture and light. Store in a closed, light-proof case. Store Albenza out of the reach of children and pets.

It's time for the Italian government to stop letting the Catholic Church have so much power over what they do. We have the same problem with the Catholics and with a hate group that calls themselves Christian in Louisiana. That is the Louisiana Family Forum. They dictate at both the city and state level. If it's not the Diocese grousing its the LFA.

The pose he is in, the expression on his face, the cardinal looks GAY! My gaydar went up immediately! He is probably having boys on the side and feels guilty about it.

Okay it's about time we started saying it like it is guys. This is a fascist bigot who wanders around pretending he has higher moral values that the rest of us when in fact he gets what 'morals' he has from the gutter. We really need to become more aggressive as a group in our fight against these fuckers.

Maybe it's time for a petition to the pope to fire this guy. He is certainly not doing the pope's bidding.

Sigh. They really ought to think before putting foot in mouth, oughtn't they. Substitute "Jew", or "black", or "Latino", or "Roma", or anything else, and the nasty stupidity of that is glaringly obvious.

I suspect these clergy are self loathing idiots. There is nothing wrong being gay; we were born this way. We are loving caring beings. This is why I cannot accept the Catholic church.
