The Vatican after Irish gay-yes: - A defeat for humanity
The referendum that led to a yes to same-sex marriages in Ireland, is not only a defeat for Christian principles, but also a defeat for humanity, according to the Vatican.

The statement comes from the Vatican's Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who is considered number two in the Vatican.

- I was deeply saddened by the result, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said at a conference in Rome on Tuesday night.

-The church must take account of this reality, but in the sense that it must strengthen its commitment to evangelisation. I think that you cannot just talk of a defeat for Christian principles, but of a defeat for humanity, he said.

Dublin's Archbishop Diarmuid Martin's reaction was far milder than Parolin's and the Vatican's Secretary of State's statements are expected to lead to new debates about the church's stance on gay rights and equality.

Ireland is the first country in the world to legalize gay marriages after a referendum. The result constitutes a historic upheaval in the country where homosexuality was forbidden by law until 1993.
