During his first press conference in Rome, the new president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, Perugia Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, called the controversial document Amoris Laetitia a “masterpiece that belongs to the magisterium of the Church” putting it on the same level as the documents of Vatican II although Amoris Laetitia contradicts it. He further claimed that not every “irregular [marriage] situation” is a mortal sin.

About himself Bassetti said that he “acts out of the instinct of the heart more than out of the reasons of the intellect.” According to common sense the instinct is not an adequate instrument to resolve problems belonging to the realm of the intellect.
