Honduran Catholic Church Loves Lucy, But Not Ricky

After Ricky Martin's announcement of the birth of his twin boys via surrogate - who is rumored to be his cousin - the cardinal of Honduras, Oscar Andres Rodriguez, compared the Puerto Rican pop star's method of child conception to trafficking in human life while speaking to an audience in Chile.

“What Martin did diminishes the dignity of a human being. You can’t just buy or rent life. It’s even worse when someone famous and in the public eye is doing it,” said the Catholic leader.

Yeah, Ricky, you can't just buy a baby! Who do you think you are? Madonna? Angelina Jolie-Pitt? Obviously, male children are much better in the hands of men who vow never to get married, wear dresses in public on a daily basis and spend copious amounts of time with boy's choirs.

Cardinal, do you hear yourself? Must every Catholic official fully illustrate exactly why the Catholic church is LONG overdue for another reformation or, barring that, a complete deconstruction as it rapidly looses relevance in a modern world? For God's sake, the Catholic church has resumed the selling of Indulgences! So you buy your way into Heaven, but not a baby - you can be the worst person in the world, as long as you support the corruption of one of the world's oldest and most rotten organizations.

I don't want to be racist, or anything, but I'm pretty positive that I could take $1,000 American to Honduras and buy a baby on the black market right now. To put it simply, Cardinal, your country has many more problems than a rich, famous, handsome (possibly gay) pop star conceiving children with a surrogate.
