‘Extremely unfortunate’: Homosexualist, feminist leaders unhappy with new Montreal archbishop

MONTREAL, Quebec, March 22, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Only two days after his appointment to head up the Montreal Archdiocese, Archbishop Christian Lepine is already facing attacks from activists in Quebec’s homosexual and feminist movements.
Archbishop Lepine, 60, was questioned on his strong pro-life and pro-family stances at a press conference Wednesday morning. The newly-minted prelate avoided stirring up any heated controversy with his carefully worded answers, which he grounded Pope John Paul II’s teachings on human sexuality, known as the theology of the body, and the Church’s mission to proclaim the Gospel.
Asked about abortion, Lepine emphasized that “God is the author of life” and “the first right is the right to life.” He said he hopes to attend the National March for Life in Ottawa this May, as he has done in the past.
“This bishop believes in reparative therapy,” Steve Foster, the group’s president, told the Journal de Quebec. “It shows that for the Church, gays and lesbians are sick people who need to be cured.”
Alexa Conradi, president of the Quebec Women’s Federation, also denounced Archbishop Lepine’s appointment as “extremely unfortunate,” saying he is “so out of touch with Quebec values.”
“The religious leaders have given over the reigns to people who are more conservative,” she told the Journal de Quebec.
