Vatican Digs In After Gay Marriage Advances In U.S., Europe

VATICAN CITY (November 10, 2012)--The Vatican is digging in after gay marriage initiatives scored big wins this week in the U.S. and Europe, vowing never to stop insisting that marriage can only be between a man and a woman.

In a front-page article in Saturday's Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, the Holy See attempted to frame itself as the lone voice of courage in opposing initiatives to give same-sex couples legal recognition.

In a separate Vatican Radio editorial, the Vatican spokesman asked sarcastically why gay marriage proponents don't now push for legal recognition for polygamous couples as well.

The Vatican media blitz came after voters in three U.S. states approved same-sex marriage by popular vote, Spain upheld its gay marriage law and France pushed ahead with legislation that could see gay marriage legalized early next year.
