Spanish cardinal labels homosexuality as deficient

“With all due respect, I say that homosexuality is a deficient way to manifest one’s sexuality, because the latter has a structure and a goal, which is procreation”


Fernando Aguilar, a newly appointed Spanish Cardinal, speaking with Malaga newspaper Sur. The Cardinal compared homosexuality to his high blood pressure, stating that he would seek to correct it in any way he could, implying that “deficient” homosexuals should do the same with their sexuality.
