Colombia: Scheinheiligkeit is a German word for hypocrisy, specifically that kind of hypocrisy which involves feigned innocence, an "appearance of holiness". A good example of Scheinheiligkeit would be a high-ranking representative of an organisation which has deliberately covered up child sexual abuse in its ranks groundlessly accusing another group of paedophilia.
Which brings us on to Colombian Roman Catholic bishop Juan Vicente Córdoba, who objected to the adoption of two boys by an American gay man because, well, pooves only want to have sex with children. He told newspaper El Tiempo:
I don't know him, and I do not blame him, but one thing is clear: he has homosexual tendencies, and has got a 10-year-old boy and a 13-year-old youth. Between them there will be no father-son relationship.the priest, who is also Secretary General of the Colombian Episcopal Conference, said.He will get the two children at an age when he might find them attractive. This could be a temptation.Cordoba said that it was safer to give gays two girls. [Caveat: this is translated by me from a German translation of a Spanish language article.]
I realise he's not very important to the sort of Christian who beats on about it, but didn't that Jesus chappie have something to say about this sort of behaviour? Ah yes, here we are. Matt. 7: 3-5:
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
