More proof Buttigloine is wrong for the job

16 Oct

I already mentioned the struggle over the nomination of Rocco Buttiglione for Justice and home affairs Comissioner. My view was that his statements on homosexuality should not disqualify him for the post, but his statement about the role of women should. Well, he just provided more evidence for my point.

"The children who have only got a mother and no father are the offspring of a not so good mother," he was reported as saying at a conference in Saint Vincent on Friday.

A man responsible for overseeing issues of gender equality shouldn't be saying this sorts of thing, especially when "clarifying" his personal philosophy.
