Catholic Priest Says Gay Sex is Like ‘Cramming a Bagel in Your Ear’

 

Wow, this may be my new fetish, cramming bagels into my ear. You know what they say? It’s not the size of the bagel, it’s what you do with it.

A Catholic priest has come up with one of the strangest analogies yet for gay sex, claiming it is like cramming a piece of bagel in your ear.

Preacher John Riccardo was speaking at a conference in Michigan on Wednesday, called Welcoming and Accompanying Our Brothers and Sisters with Same-Sex Attraction. It was a Catholic conference in order to help gay and lesbian people stay celibate.

He was taking part in a lecture called ‘HIV and Other Health Risks Associated with Men Who Have Sex With Men’, led by HIV researcher Timothy Flanigan.

Riccardo said junior high students have asked him why God hates gay people, and he responded that it is because gay sex is unnatural.

‘If i just rip open a bagel, I take it, and I cram it in my ear. What would you say?’ he said he tells them. ‘That doesn’t go there. It’ll ruin your ear canal.’

The priest also revealed during the lecture that he has a family member with a gay daughter, and has told her not to have gay sex.

‘The goal here isn’t going from being gay to being straight,’ Riccardo said, according to Free Press. ‘The goal here is going from not knowing Jesus to knowing Jesus.’

The conference was opposed by LGBTI people and their allies. A gay-friendly Catholic group protested outside the venue.

Tom Nelson, a member of a Catholic group that supports LGBTI family members, described the conference as like being the ‘medieval times all over again’.

‘If God created people gay, then gay sex seems to be a natural thing,’ he said. ‘[The church] hasn’t come to speed with the 21st century’.
