Saying that "if all the flowers were the same, fields would lose their beauty", the archbishop of Lucca, Italo Castellani, spoke in favor of a cultural revolution on gay acceptance within the Catholic Church.
The Italian archbishop added,
«Gay. Well, I must confess, when I use this word it seems that there is an intrinsic judgement yet. I struggle to use it. Therefore, we need a cultural transition, because difference it's wealth. What matters above all is the dignity of the person. And I wonder why young people consider the church as 'homophobic'».
