English Cardinal decries pop culture
Jun 11, 2005
During a press conference on ethics in the medi,a organized by the Dominican Institute of Telecommunications, Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez of Santo Domingo, said human beings were not meant to engage in dances that are proper “for dogs.”

Santo Domingo, Jun. 08 2005 (CNA/CWNews.com) - Referring to popular dance styles that are receiving heavy coverage in the media, the cardinal criticized a popular type of reggae music whose rhythms and beats, he said, do not correspond to “the best expressions of art and inspiration.” The cardinal said another dance style known as the “doggy dance,” which includes imitation of sexual acts, “may be very popular, but I don’t think it is meant for human beings.”

“Let’s leave the ‘doggy dance’ to the dogs,” the cardinal added.

Cardinal Lopez Rodriguez also criticized the way in which television has been promoting homosexuality as something “normal.” “We already have a lot of unpleasant things to watch, let alone to have to tolerate these kinds of things,” he concluded.
