EU-balls:

Nominee EU Commissioner Peter Mandelson says his colleague Rocco Buttiglione was "unwise" to express his views on homosexuals at an EU committee hearing.

The Italian candidate for EU justice commissioner told a panel of MEPs that he thought homosexuality was a "sin".

Mr Buttiglione, who is close to the Vatican and a member of the Christian Democrat UDC party, said during a confirmation hearing in Brussels that he considered homosexuality "a sin".

He went on to say the aim of marriage was "to allow women to have children and to have the protection of a male".
Ok then - anyone need protecting? ;-)
