Italian bishops' leader 'amazed' at Dolce & Gabbana furore

'In view of constant talk of freedom of speech' says Bagnasco

(ANSA) - Genoa, March 17 - Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, head of the Italian bishops' conference (CEI) and archbishop of Genoa, said Tuesday he is "amazed" at the furore sparked by Dolce and Gabbana's defence of heterosexual families.
    "I am amazed by this fact (because) there is constant talk of freedom of expression," said Bagnasco of the outcry that followed when openly gay fashion designer Domenico Dolce upheld heterosexual family values and criticised in vitro fertilization and surrogate motherhood, both techniques sometimes used by gay couples who want children.
