Cardenal Ruini: «no se puede pretender que el matrimonio sea indisoluble y comportarse como si no lo fuese»
En una amplia entrevista concedida al Corriere della Sera, el cardenal Camilo Ruini asegura, preguntado por la cuestión de los divorciados vueltos a casar, que si el matrimonio permanece indisoluble, contraer un nuevo supone un caso de bigamia y mantener relaciones sexuales con otras personas adulterio y recuerda que «el Papa ha reafirmado la indisolubilidad, la unidad, la fidelidad, la procreatividad del matrimonio, en términos muy claros». El prelado cree que la actual ola libertaria puede disolverse.

Il cardinal Ruini: «Sono contro le unioni civili»
In un’intervista concessa al Corriere della Sera, il cardinale Camillo Ruini ha detto che «Papa Francesco ha cambiato stile e linguaggio, non la dottrina. Io non dirò più “valori non negoziabili”, ma non cambio idea: sono contro la comunione ai risposati e alle unioni civili. Sui gay la Chiesa non è in ritardo, ma all’avanguardia: non escludo che l’ondata libertaria rifluisca».
