'Gay Gene' Claimed by Pope's New Spanish Cardinal

Just when the liberal media believed they had effectively twisted Pope Francis and his supposed new doctrine into a pretzel, yet another high appointment in the Roman Catholic hierarchy has riled homosexualists -- ironically by agreeing that a yet-to-be-found "gay gene" exists, but says it's a defect.
"Homosexuality is a defective manner of expressing sexuality, because this [sex] has a structure and a purpose, which is procreation. A homosexual who can't achieve this [procreation] is failing."
-- Archbishop Fernando Sebastian Aguilar

-- From "Cardinal claims homosexuality is a defect, 'like high blood pressure'" posted at PBS NewsHour 1/20/14

Controversial remarks made by Spain's newest cardinal have landed the Catholic Church in hot water with gay rights advocates. Archbishop Fernando Sebastian Aguilar said Sunday that homosexuality was a "defect" that needed to be addressed so that homosexuals could find a way to cure themselves going forward.

"Our bodies have many defects. I have high blood pressure," said Aguilar, "It's a defect that I have to try and correct in whatever way I can...To say that homosexuality is a defect is not an insult: it helps because in many cases of homosexuality it is possible to recover and become normal with the right treatment."

The cardinal's comments were immediately condemned by Spanish gay rights group Colegas.

In an interview published Sunday, reported the AFP, Archbishop Aguilar  said, “A lot of people complain and don’t tolerate it but with all respect I say that homosexuality is a defective way of manifesting sexuality, because that has a structure and a purpose, which is procreation.”

He continued, “Pointing out a defect to a homosexual is not an offense, it is a help because many cases of homosexuality can be recovered and normalized with adequate treatment. It is not an offense, it is esteem. When someone has a defect, the good friend is the one who tells him.”

When asked about Pope Francis’ remark last year about not judging a gay person who with good will seeks to follow Christ, Archbishop Aguilar said the Pope was not contradicting church teaching. “It is one thing to show welcome and affection to a homosexual person and another to morally justify the exercise of homosexuality,” said the archbishop.

[Aguilar] said: 'All [the Pope] is doing is offering comprehension and compassion and showing a desire to welcome those who have gone astray.'

When reminded of the Pope's speech last year asking for compassion towards homosexuals, he said: 'The pope is very respectful and holds all people in high esteem but he doesn't betray or change the traditional teaching of the church. You can tell a person what their weakness is but that doesn't justify a decision to respect them and help them.'

The 84-year Archbishop emeritus of Pamplona, one of 19 new cardinals named by Pope Francis last week, elevated archbishop to the rank of cardinal in recognition of his life-long service to the church.
