Genoa, March 6 - The Church needs a gay pope,
outspoken LGBT rights advocate and Catholic priest Don Andrea
Gallo said on Wednesday.
"A homosexual pope would be a magnificent thing. The
essence of the Gospel is that we are all God's sons and
daughters and we are all equal as God's children," Don Gallo
told Radio 24 program La Zanzara.
The founder of Genoa's San Benedetto drug-rehab community,
Don Gallo has publicly defended the rights of gays and
transsexuals, smoked marijuana in city hall to protest against
what he says are draconian drug laws, and been branded a
Communist by his opponents.
"The homosexual priest must be free to express his identity
and his sexuality, because repression leads to pedophilia," Don
Gallo explained, adding that he himself was sexually harassed by
a bishop when he was a young priest.
Also on Wednesday, 75% of readers of Asian Catholic website
Ucanews.com said in a survey that pedophilia is the Catholic
Church's biggest problem, and that sexual abuse by priests
should be at the top of the next pope's agenda.
The survey was conducted from February 18-28, with 2,300
readers responding.
