VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The Vatican has protested to Italy over a draft law to combat homophobia, saying that in its present form it could restrict the religious freedom of the Catholic Church in Italy.

The protest, which was first reported by the Corriere della Sera on Tuesday and confirmed by a Vatican official, was delivered on June 17 by the Vatican foreign minister to Italy's embassy to the Holy See.
