Catholic Cardinal Who Said Homosexuality Was 'Moral Degradation' Had A Boyfriend
- A recently-resigned cardinal with a reputation for being anti-gay may have had a long-running physical relationship with another man, according to new reports.
The scandal began earlier this year when reports that Scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien had "inappropriate contact" with male priests appeared in the British press. O'Brien, the highest ranking Catholic in the UK, resigned the next week, admitting that his "sexual conduct has fallen below the standards expected of me."
O'Brien's resignation letter, however, remained quite vague as to what he had done wrong.
