Vatican Urges Rome to Drop Law Forcing Church Schools to Teach Gender Theory

The Vatican argues the new Italian law would violate 90-year-old treaties between the two states and criminalise the church for not allowing same-sex marriage and adoption by gay couples and for refusing to teach practices that go against Catholic values.

The Vatican City has formally asked Italy to drop a proposed law that could see the Catholic church criminalised for refusing to conduct gay marriages.

In a move described as "unprecedented" by the daily Corriere della Sera newspaper, the Roman micro-state of the Holy See has made a formal protest to the Italian government.

Pope Francis' envoy Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher delivered a letter or 'note verbale' to the Italian embassy to the Vatican on June 17.
The so-called "Zan bill," named after gay MP Alessandro Zan from the centre-left Democratic Party, was passed by the lower house of parliament in November and is currently being debated in the Senate.
