From UAAR (doctored by Google Translator):
Education Minister Mariastella Gelmini, a tireless advocate of the Christian roots of our country (Italy) and the presence of the crucifix in classrooms, working for months in an attempt to prevent the development of alternative activities to the teaching of the Catholic religion, got married today in Sirmione del Garda. The ceremony took place shortly after midnight in a civil ceremony (the groom is divorced). The Town Hall opened for the occasion. The bride is in the sixth month of pregnancy. The wedding was attended by two key members of a government that does not fail to underline its harmony with Catholic morals: Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (already divorced, and currently requesting a further separation), and the Minister for Cultural Property Sandro Bondi (separated).

Somewhat surprised that this further proof of religious hypocricy has not produced more headlines.
Yeah, David, but it’s so run of the mill here in Italy that it doesn’t even count. But, according to a recent poll, belief is waning and non-theism is on the rise – a few percentage points a year! Perhaps one day the Catholics will be forced to practice what they themselves preach.
