Dominican cardinal criticizes spread of immodest dancing

.- During a press conference on ethics in the media organized by the Dominican Institute of Telecommunications (INDOTEL), Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez, Archbishop of Santo Domingo, said human beings were not meant to engage in dances that are proper “for dogs.” Referring to certain popular dance styles that are receiving 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 very sensual and immodest contact between dance partners and is danced to reggae music, “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.  “Human beings have never had the pretension to be dogs.  Therefore, let’s establish a clear and categorical difference between one thing and the other,” he stated.

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 (on T.V.) let alone to have to tolerate these kinds of things,” he concluded.
