Pie in the episcopal face

Here is an interesting piece:

Belgium’s embattled archbishop gets pie in face at All Saints service, won’t press charges
By The Associated Press (CP) – 1 day ago
BRUSSELS — Belgian media says the country’s ultraconservative Roman Catholic archbishop was hit by a pie in the face during an All Saints Day service.
Footage of the incident released Saturday showed a young man approaching Archbishop Andre Leonard on Monday and smacking him with a pie. A church official says the archbishop will not press charges against the unknown attacker.
The incident came amid growing turmoil within Belgium’s Roman Catholic church, which faces an investigation into hundreds of cases of sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests. Leonard himself shocked Catholics by sympathizing with priests accused of pedophilia and by saying that homosexuals deserved to get AIDS.
