Archbishop Says Gays Should Be Protected From Discrimination

RNS reports that Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Pontifical Council for the Family, in his first press conference sine he was appointed, urged protection of gays and lesbians from discrimination in countries where homosexuality is illegal. While emphasizing the Church's continued opposition to same-sex marriage, the Archbishop at a press conference yesterday said:
In the world there are 20 or 25 countries where homosexuality is a crime.  I would like the church to fight against all this.
