Yesterday there was the story about Belgian Cardinal Gustaaf Joos who had said.
“I am prepared to sign here in my blood that of all those who say they are lesbian or gay, at most five to 10 per cent are effectively lesbian or gay. All the rest are sexual perverts,”
Many bloggers remarked on the story in favor of at least one Belgian Cardinal speaking out against homosexual activity, but that his language was too harsh.
Yet this same Cardinal also seems to endorse brothels.
“If a man thinks he needs sex or is going to explode, it is better to find a prostitute than seduce or rape a girl. At least there are no innocent victims involved,” he said.
Both of these Cardinals seem to be Belgian Waffles, waffling all over the Catholic faith.
One thing I found interesting in the coverage of Belgian cardinal Godfried Danneels statement on condom use is that the majority of the stories said that he was a possible successor to the pope. Yet none of the stories on Cardinal Gustaff I saw said that he was a possible successor to the pope.
