Priest: Gay Sex Is Like Eating a Bagel With Your Ear

A group of Catholic leaders gathered last week in Plymouth, MI, to vent about same-sex relationships and to complain about how unnatural we all are. But it wasn't all negative. The bishops and priests also took time to explore outreach efforts to LGBT people, such as comparing our sex acts with aural eating practices:
At a national conference in Plymouth, Catholic leaders spoke out Wednesday against same-gender sexual relations, claiming it’s harmful and unnatural, but added that the Catholic Church must reach out to those with same-sex attractions. At the conference, a popular Catholic priest in metro Detroit, the Rev. John Riccardo of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Plymouth, told about how a family member of his wrestles with how to deal with a gay child.... 

In his talk to fellow clergy and others, Riccardo discussed how to talk about gay issues. He said the issue comes up when he meets with young people. 

“This is the question which is asked by junior-high kids: Why does God hate gays?” Riccardo said. Riccardo said he responds in terms that can relate to younger folks without being too explicit. 

“Here’s the image that I use,” Riccardo said. He said he tells the students, what if ‘I just rip open a bagel, I take it, and I cram it in my ear. What would you say?’ 

He said, the kids respond: “That doesn’t go there.”
“I say, ‘Exactly. That will ruin your ear canal.'"
You read that correctly. Gay sex is like eating a bagel with your ear.
