Vatican City, Europe: Vatican rejects Italian lawmakers: in sign that it views Italian Parliament's laws as oppressive

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Reuters (Secular; British; mostly accurate) 31/12/2008)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Vatican is making a break from a policy it has had since the Lateran treaty established it; after the papal states had been conquered by force: by Italy. In Catholic doctrine, a law must be logical, and for the good of the people. If it is rejected: the church only ligitimately can reject laws it sees as evil and oppressive: illogical, and not for the greater good.

The Vatican will no longer automatically adopt Italian law; while rejecting individual laws: instead: it had decided that Vatican representatives will read over each law made: to decide whether or not: individually to adopt these. This is seen as an open rejection of the government formed by Catholic laity in Italy.
