After Galileo Galilei was forced by the authoritarian establishment of his time to renounce his observation that the Earth revolves around the Sun, he’s said to have said, “And yet it moves.” The modern equivalent would be, “And yet homosexuality spreads AIDS.”
The new archbishop of Brussels, Andre-Joseph Leonard, is being targeted by homosexualist groups, and has been condemned by the country’s prime minister, after he said that AIDS is a consequence of risky sexual behavior, including homosexual sexual activity.
Homosexualist groups have accused Archbishop Leonard of “homophobia,” after he pointed out in a book released in October that “AIDS at the beginning multiplied through sexual behaviour with all sorts of partners or else through anal rather than vaginal sexual rapports.”
“When you mistreat the environment it ends up mistreating us in turn,” he continued. “And when you mistreat human love, perhaps it winds up taking vengeance.”
“All I’m saying is that sometimes there are consequences linked to our actions. I believe this is a totally decent, honourable and respectable stance.”
Of course it is. But it is also politically incorrect and therefore subject to punishment as heresy.
A lawyer acting on behalf of a homosexualist lobby group has filed a formal complaint against Leonard for “homophobic statements” and “violating an anti-discrimination law.”
Although he’s been forced to deny meaning to say that disease-spreading forms of sexual perversion are abnormal, for now the Archbishop is holding firm on the irrefutable fact that “risky sexual behavior” [i.e., homosexuality] spreads AIDS. He’s in for a rough ride:
Yves Leterme, Belgium’s nominally Catholic prime minister, is among those who have condemned Leonard in the ensuing furor. Recently a man ran up to the archbishop during a service at the Brussels cathedral and shoved a cherry pie in his face, apparently in connection with the controversy. …
A group of academics at the notoriously liberal Catholic University of Louvain are circulating a petition calling for Leonard’s resignation from his post as the university’s chancellor, saying his remarks had brought “shame on the university.”
Let’s hope he holds out for awhile before agreeing that 2+2=5.
