Mexican Catholic church apologized for saying that ‘man’s anus is not designed to receive’


One of the top Mexican Catholic cardinals Norberto Rivera has issued an apology on behalf of the Archdiocese for the anti-gay comments. They include an editorial published online that claimed that “a man’s anus is not designed to receive, only to expel.”

Cardinal Rivera asked people to forgive using “inadequate expressions” in reference to gay people and added that there was no intention to offend anybody. He promised to discuss with the other church leaders a possible ability of gay people to attend the church.

It’s a sharp contrast to past remarks from the Cardinal, who has said that he would never apologise for his rhetoric regarding LGBT people, even if it offended them. He called a Mexican marriage equality bill a “terrible stab in the back,” and urged gay Mexicans to “abstain from having sex.”
