Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


Belgium Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard said gay men deserve AIDSThe head of Belgium's Catholic Church is in hot water for saying gay men deserve AIDS for the "travesty" that is homosexuality and that pedophile priests should go unpunished.

A gay rights lawyer is threatening legal action against Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard -- a close friend of the pope -- for saying AIDS is "justice" for gay men.

Leonard's press spokesman, Juergen Mettepenningen, has quit over the remarks, saying, "Monsignor Leonard at times acts like a motorist driving on the wrong side of a motorway who thinks all the other motorists are wrong."
