Priest blames earth­quakes on gay unions

The Myanmar Times - - World -

An Ital­ian priest has said the re­cent earth­quakes that have shaken the coun­try, killing hun­dreds and leav­ing tens of thou­sands home­less, were “di­vine pun­ish­ment” for gay civil unions, earn­ing the Vat­i­can’s wrath. Fa­ther Gio­vanni Caval­coli, a the­olo­gian known for his hard­line views, made the com­ments on Oc­to­ber 30, the day cen­tral Italy was struck by a 6.6-mag­ni­tude quake – the most pow­er­ful to hit the coun­try in 36 years. It was the third ma­jor quake in the same re­gion in just over two months.
