Surreal Pie

Archbishop Andre-Joseph Léonard receives a chocolate-looking pie at Mass on All Saints Day. In the face. The next day, the prelate’s spokesman resigned.

Jürgen Mettepenningen:

Archbishop Léonard has sometimes acted like someone who’s driving against the traffic and thinks everyone else is wrong.

Archbishop Léonard does not take his leadership duties seriously. But it is above all his surrealist attitude regarding the turmoil stirred up by his remarks that I take too seriously to still support this.

What’s not surreal about this? Defense of pedophiles. Attacks on gays. Liturgical theatre of the absurd.
