Archbishop Italo Castellani

Archbishop Italo Castellani of Lucca, Italy, has called for the Church to re-think the negative way it thinks about lesbian and gay people.  On Top magazine reports on his recent conversation with reporters in which he stated:

“If all the flowers were the same, fields would lose their beauty.

“Gay. Well, I must confess, when I use this word it seems that there is an intrinsic judgment yet. I struggle to use it. Therefore, we need a cultural transition, because difference is wealth. What matters above all is the dignity of the person.”

The archbishop’s words were originally reported in an article on Schermo.it, an Italian language news website.  The translation of his statement was provided by the blog, Agere per Formulas.

–Francis DeBernardo, New Ways Ministry

    Personally, I don’t think labels should apply to people at all. Gay, straight, black, white….we are all children of God and until we see God in each one of us, people will always put labels on each other. The only label should be ‘child of God.” Happy that the Archbishop spoke up!
