Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
For Europe, the fall of Communism has to be taken into account, and the fact that in the fight against Communism the recovery of Europe's Christian roots was the driving force.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
I can think that you are mistaken, but I have to be ready to give my life to maintain your right to make mistakes. I have to, though, have the right to say that you're mistaken. This is the principal of the liberal society.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
I support non-discrimination for homosexuals, but I think, or at least I have the right to think - without saying whether I think it or not - I have the right to think, along with the catechism of the Catholic Church, that homosexuality is morally wrong.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione

Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
If you search for poverty, you'll find it, often in the family. Why? Because the family makes this great investment, from which we all benefit, but for which no-one helps. We have to point the spotlight on the family, and make political choices that sustain the family.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
In Bruxelles, they questioned me not to find out what my politics were: they wanted to know what my moral convictions were.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
John Paul II, above all, managed to contain the huge mass of frustration, of hate that had accumulated in that region, in favour of a peaceful transition. This was, without doubt, something that changed European history.

No, moral conscience is one thing, the law is another. We have to hold onto this difference.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
On the other hand, I think that the family, the traditional family, has a fundamental social role, because it's there that children are born and the investment in children is the greatest investment a country can make. The benefits of this investment go to everyone.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
One needs to know what the hierarchy of values are from which one takes inspiration, and in a democratic society this is the subject of continuous democratic debate.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
Priests have to have the right to say that a sin is a sin.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
Relativism should be confronted where it damages fundamental human rights, because we're not relativists if we believe that the human being should be at the centre of society and the rights of every human being should be respected.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
Sinners have to have the right to sin, up to the point, obviously, where it doesn't produce damage, at which point the law intervenes. The law doesn't touch upon the morality of our behaviour, but it touches upon the defence of the rights of the other. It's an old distinction that remains valid.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
That's possible, and in fact the legislation, the politics should graduate the advantages towards those who have children and give less to those who don't have children.

Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
The past was more Christian? At times perhaps, in others, though, no.
Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione

Quotation of Rocco Buttiglione
Well, politics is always based first on values, because the programmes derive from the values. So clarity on values is the base for politics.
