Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees
Pope John Paul II was "a great man and a great European", Mr Borrell said.
It might be worth pointing out what Pope John Paul II wrote in his book the The Theology of the Body he notes that both the Old and New Testaments condemn homosexuality as a sinful act and that Church teachings have consistently "held that homosexual acts are immoral."
I think Mr Borrell needs to read Luke - Chapter 12
In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Does Borrell, not recall the treatment dished out to Italy's nominee for the EU Justice Commission. The European Parliament voted against the Popes friend, Rocco Buttiglione, after comments made in Parliament, referring to homosexuality as a "sin"
At that time Josep Borrell, added his voice to the opposition to Mr Buttiglione's candidature, saying: "It does not seem to me that in this day and age we can have people in charge of justice - especially justice - who think like that".
Yesterday, He recalled the Pope's speech to the European Parliament on the reunification of Europe when John Paul II had said that "Europe must breathe with both its lungs".
OKchaps, all together now, take big deep breath "hypocrisy is a sin"
