Catholic Bishop: "Spiritual Environmental Pollution" in New Orleans


Catholic Bishop: "Spiritual Environmental Pollution" in New Orleans

Gerhard Maria Wagner, 54, is to become auxiliary bishop in the Austrian city of Linz, where he is viewed as a controversial figure by churchgoers and clergy alike. In 2005, he wrote in a parish newsletter that Hurricane Katrina was an act of "divine retribution" for the sins of a sexually permissive society. He said it was worth considering whether environmental catastrophes should not be seen as a result of "spiritual environmental pollution" - a type of "divine retribution" for New Orleans' relaxed attitude towards sexual promiscuity and homosexuality.

At least the Pope's nominee didn't cheat on his taxes - uh, as far as I know anyway.

Note: I would love to know what Bishop Wagner has to say as to why American Catholics voted for an Abortionist by a 54% margin. I'm sure he would tell us that we get what we deserve!
