Another week, another Puerto Rican cleric on Ricky Martin’s back . . .
Cardinal Luis Aponte Martínez of San Juan, Puerto Rico, recently asked singer Ricky Martin to refrain from promoting homosexuality and to set a good example for young people.
“Personally I admire Ricky for the great artistic gifts the Lord has given him, but I implore him, for the love of his children … to strive to be an example for our young people of the important values that we all share, including sexuality.
“In this way he will be thanking the Lord for the great gifts he has been given,” the cardinal told the Puerto Rican daily Primera Hora on April 8.
The Church “does not reject the homosexual person, but rather the actions and conduct that go against morality.”
“To foster homosexuality or sexual promiscuity among our young people is certainly immoral no matter where it comes from,” the cardinal added.

One thought on “Now it’s Puerto Rico’s Catholic Cardinal’s turn to harass Ricky Martin”
For “the church” to condemn anything is a bizarre twist of judgement.
