France condemns Vatican for anti-gay slur

More on the Vatican's massive own goal.

The French government has joined the queue of officials condemning the words used by the Vatican's number two, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone.

He recently claimed that the church paedophilia scandal is to be blamed on homosexuality and not on the Catholic clergy as such, even though many cases of abuse took place against girls as well as boys.

French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said the remarks linking the abuse to homosexuality were "unacceptable" and added that France is committed to the struggle against discrimination and prejudice linked to sexual orientation and gender identity.
