Bishop says state should recognise gay couples
Sicilian prelate breaks with Vatican line12 January, 19:53
"When two people, even if they're the same sex, decide to live together, it's important for the State to recognise this fact," said Paolo Urso, bishop of the Sicilian city of Ragusa.
"But it must be called something different from marriage," Msgr Urso added.
