Vomit!

by Jeremy Hooper
"Homosexuality is not the same as normal sex in the same way that anorexia is not a normal appetite," Monsignor André-Joseph Léonard, the archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, told a Belgian television station, according to RNW. He added that he would "never call anorexia patients abnormal."

As bishop of Namen in Belgium, RNW reports, Léonard provoked controversy when he called homosexuality abnormal

At what point, exactly, did the Catholic Church hire Fred Phelps to handle strategic communications?

Your thoughts

The level to which they're obsessed with gay sex would be hilarious if it didn't result in such hatred. Of course, for a bunch of men who aren't (supposed) to have sex, around all of those other (mostly?) sexless men all the time.. it is understandable. Then there are the pedos... you know, they really have much bigger fish to fry.

Well, in the US in the DSM and the WORLD HEALTH's ICD guidlines:
Anorexia Nervosa is a true psychological ABNORMALITY!!
(Whereas we all know that Hooper studies (repeated with same results) showed that homosexuality is a well-adjusted normal behaviour status.)

from WIKI: "A definition of anorexia nervosa was established by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) and the World Health Organization's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD).

DSM-IV-TR criteria are:

Refusal to maintain body weight at or above a minimally normal weight for age and height (e.g. weight loss leading to maintenance of body weight less than 85% of that expected; or failure to make expected weight gain during period of growth, leading to body weight less than 85% of that expected).
Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat, even though underweight.
Disturbance in the way in which one's body weight or shape is experienced, undue influence of body weight or shape on self-evaluation, or denial of the seriousness of the current low body weight."
