Homosexual activists pelt Belgian archbishop with pies
Catholic World News - April 08, 2011
Homosexual activists threw pies at Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard of Brussels on April 6, as the archbishop was speaking at the Catholic University in Louvain.
Archbishop Leonard has become a chief target of gay-rights campaigners because of his opposition to homosexuality. He was the target of several different pies during his appearance in Louvain, and a noted homosexual activist posted videos of the assault on the internet.

Is it not the "silence" of Catholics that makes this outrage possible?

First they came for the Archbishops, but I did not speak up because I was not an archbishop...

Shows how vicious homosexuals can be, activists or not; that was my experience in my work history also. Something is wrong with their mind.

Archbishop Leonard suffers like his Good Shepherd, especially during this Lent. Bravo to him! I wish to clone him for each diocese in Western Europe.

Bad as I feel for Archbishop Leonard, I think he count himself lucky for now to be hit with pies. Next, you can be sure there will be stones.
