On this day:

"Diversity" in the EU

A committee of Euroweenies has rejected an Italian candidate to head justice and security policy based on his views with regard to homosexuality.

The nominee, Mr. Rocco Buttiglione, said, "I may think that homosexuality is a sin, and this has no effect on politics, unless I say that homosexuality is a crime."

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said, "The very idea of disputing the freedom of conscience and opinion of a commissioner of Catholic faith, contesting his own secular distinction between morality and law, smells of fundamentalism if not obscurantism."

Hmmmm...sounds familiar.
