Vatican City, April 24 - The French government ignored many of its citizens and made an ideological choice in legalizing gay marriage, the Osservatore Romano said Wednesday. One day earlier, the government of French President Francois Hollande legalized same-sex marriage after a fierce national debate. The newspaper of Vatican City complained the decision is divisive for French society and threatens relationships. "The government of President Hollande, who has strongly supported the bill, did not pay attention to the many voices in recent months from many sectors of French society. And not only by Catholics," the newspaper said.
