Italian mayor wants to ban gay couples from kissing in public because it is 'morally harmful'


The mayor of the Italian municipality of Borgosesia has voiced disgust at homosexuals kissing and being affectionate to one another in public.

Gianluca Buonanno is so put off by it that he is proposing a new ordinance to ban PDAs between gay people outright.  

If the ordinance is approved, it could see homosexuals fined up to 500 euros if they put on PDAs in public in Borgosesia. 

Buonanno told Italian newspaper La Repubblica he wanted to implement the ban because public displays of affection between gay people is "morally harmful". 

"Kissing in public between homosexuals? No thanks," he told the paper.  

"I don't like two people of the same sex making public displays of affection.  It's a question of respect.  And I'm convinced that it's also morally harmful for children."
