Spain's new cardinalSpain's newest cardinal has sparked outrage by saying homosexuality is a "defect" that can be cured with "proper treatment."

Fernando Sebastian, 84, who takes up office in the Vatican in February, also angered gay rights groups by comparing the sexual orientation to his own high blood pressure.

"Homosexuality is a defective manner of expressing sexuality, because this has a structure and a purpose, which is procreation," he said in an interview to Diario Sur.

"A homosexual who can't achieve this (procreation) is failing," he added, before saying, "Our bodies have many defects. I have high blood pressure."

TVNL Comment; Fundamentisl relgious belief is a "defect" that is obsessed withhuman  sexuality and can be cured with "proper treatment."  And maybe it really cannot be cured at all.
