Rapid Response:

italians rejected minority relativism

I'd say "75% of italians won", and not "italians failed...": this is
misleading. The majority of italian people did not vote, and supported the
present law, along with many non-catholic echologists and feminists (Enzo
Tiezzi, Oriana Fallaci...), despite the big campaign of all (all!) media.
