Check out Andre-Joseph Leonard, the head of Belgium's Roman Catholic Church, being hit with cream pies several times on Tuesday during a speaking engagement at the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve, near Brussels.

According to Towleroad, this is not the first time the archbishop has received such a welcome: "Leonard enraged Belgium's gay community last year when he suggested AIDS stemmed from the wrath of God, labelling the disease 'a sort of intrinsic justice.' Leonard has also compared homosexuality to anorexia."

One should never presume to know the will of God. That is divine domain alone. At least they are only using pie.
