Gay scouts must not come out and LGBT youngsters need a psychologist, concluded an Italian Catholic Scout association.
Organizers AGESCI called homosexuality ‘a problem’ during a conference near Rome last November and published its conclusions last week.
Psychologists Dario Contardo and Manuela Tomisich and Catholic priest Padre Francesco Compagnoni spoke to an audience of hundreds of young Scouts.
Compagnoni commented that ‘in the United Kingdom, gay couples have the same rights of heterosexual couples. And we don’t want this kind of thing in Italy.’
