"There are no criminal laws against same-sex sexual activity. There is an equal age of consent set at 12 years of age since 1929, when the Vatican City introduce the same law as the Codice Penale from Italy. When there is a relationship of dependence (like teacher/student) the age of consent is at 15 years."
If the Roman Catholic church is so anti sex-before-marriage why is their equal age of consent set at 12 years of age? Why is it alright for a 15 year old to have sexual relations with an older person? Surely this is hypocrisy?
