Doctors' group defends Spanish bishop's warning against homosexual activity

Catholic World News - April 19, 2012

The International Federation of Catholic Doctors Associations has come to the defense of a Spanish bishop prelate who has encountered heavy criticism for his comments on the self-destructive practices of active homosexuals.

In a Good Friday sermon, Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcala de Henares said that homosexuals encounter “pure hell” when they “corrupt and prostitute themselves or go to gay night clubs.” His remarks drew a storm of criticism from homosexual activists.

The International Federation of Catholic Doctors Associations said that the bishop’s comments were a prudent caution against unhealthy practices. The group expressed regret that government programs have encouraged young people to experiment with different forms of sexuality, and have done little to combat degrading and dangerous trends toward sexual tourism.
