Archbishop harrassed by activists

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.

Itís not the first time the bishop has been attacked for standing up for the Churchís 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.

Poor ignorant women, conquered by the devil attacking Christ; on the other hand, great for the Archibishop, standing in persona Christi.

What a wonderful example he is of walking the walk. I fear that my reaction would have been quite different if I saw him being attacked.

JP2: another example
when John Paul 2 visited Belgium, a group of alleged lesbian nuns threw feces at the popemobile; :-x
