The prelate drew attention to the writings of Sigmund Freud and other pioneers of psychiatry on the unnaturalness of homosexuality.

In recent week on Twitter, Cardinal Napier has also expressed support for Cardinal George Pell and Bishop Thomas Paprocki and has criticized the Supreme Court decisions Roe v. Wade (on abortion) and Obergefell v. Hodges (on same-sex marriage).
