Quote:In an astonshing display of gentleness in the face of a vile attack, the head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard, remained calmly seated with eyes closed in prayer Tuesday as four topless women attacked him with shouts and curses and doused him with water.

It’s not the first time the bishop has been attacked for standing up for the Church’s teachings on homosexuality and expressing his concern for those who live the homosexual lifestyle.

The incident took place at the ULB University in Brussels where the archbishop was participating in a debate on blasphemy laws.

The four women, representing the pro-abortion and homosexual group FEMEN, took to the stage where they disrobed to reveal black-painted slogans on their bare chests and backs, such as ‘my body my rules,’ and 'anus dei is coming.' They also held signs reading ‘stop homophobia’. The women doused the archbishop with water from bottles formed in the image of the Virgin Mary.

For most of the attack, which lasted a number of minutes before the women could be forced off stage, Archbishop Leonard sat drenched with water with eyes closed in prayer.  After the ordeal, the archbishop kissed the image of the Virgin Mary on one of the water bottles that was used in the attack. Le Soir reports that one of the interveners said of the archbishop: “He was very calm and maintained a position of prayer. I have to believe he was praying for us.”

According to FEMEN, Tuesday’s attack was spurred by an interview three weeks ago where Archbishop Leonard said that when speaking to Christians who are inclined to homosexuality he suggests celibacy, as is required for all single persons.

Already in 2007, as Bishop of Namur, Archbishop Leonard was accused of an offence against the Belgian anti-racism act for calling homosexual acts “abnormal”.  In 2008 he was cleared of homophobia charges after appearing in court.

In 2010, as the new archbishop of Brussels, the archbishop was targeted by homosexualist groups, and condemned by the country’s prime minister, after he said that AIDS is a consequence of risky sexual behavior, including homosexual sexual activity.

Also in 2010 he was attacked at his Cathedral by a man who shoved a cherry pie in the archbishop’s face. Again in 2011, homosexual activists at the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve near Brussels threw a custard pie in the archbishop’s face.

Archbishop Leonard has been a great supporter for the pro-life movement in Belgium, speaking at their inaugural March for Life in 2010.

This is the way to do it, imo, and not be part of the demonstrators who lost the battle long ago ("Adam and Eve" long ago). These beasts will eventually kill him; I imagine he knows it. He seems very holy.

Pray Pray Pray
It is also a good way to keep from inadvertently oggling those shameless hussies!  What is this world coming to?!? 
Miserere nobis.

I'm afraid that as the law shifts more and more to their side, these radicals will escalate their assaults.

It's demonic.
Boy hasn't Europe given these activists hate crimes charges. But Europe and US activists are all over Putin and the Orthodox church for charging and jailing Pussy Riot, when they performed a sacrilegious act in Christ the Savior Cathedral. Will be interesting if these activists try pulling this stunt in an Islamic country. If they are so dihard about their cause, they should try doing their naked stunt in Saudi Arabia, right in front of the King. I dare them!!!!.  Or better yet run into Mecca naked!!. 
Looks like the guy in back is kicking some ass (literally)  Good for him.
This is what happens when SEX is more important than God and his Church. It has nothing whatsoever to do with equality.  They harass the church, because the church doesn't give it's blessing to their distorted views.  God Bless the real women of this world!!.
These "Femen activists" are the same ones that threw a naked hissyfit inside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris to "celebrate" Pope Benedict's resignation.  Because nothing says "please take my views and concerns seriously" like ripping your clothes off and throwing a wild temper tantrum.

Maybe instead of throwing pies in the faces of bishops they should put an apron on and get in the kitchen & stick to baking pies.
Heroic from the +Bishop here!

LOL @ how bad liberals are getting.

"Hey guys I recommend celibacy if you have a homosexual tendency"
"ZOMG OUTRAGEOUS CLAIM CELIBACY MIGHT AS WELL KILL YOURSELF LETS GO ATTACK HIM AND PROTEST BECAUSE LIBERALISM IS ABOUT PEACE"

Ridiculous. These people are clueless.

And like all these kinds of people they hate the Blessed Virgin and mock her,. A classic display of satanism even if they don't know it. They'll claim to be non-believers but boy oh boy satan is loving it. He hates Our Lady and so do they. Disgusting really.

Pussy Riot was protesting Church and State corruption which are realities in Russia.

FEMEN on the other hand is a violent anti-clerical group that assaults religion and people directly.  They should be kicked in the head until rendered sedate vegetables at their next violent protest.
