Cardinal Attacks Martin Over Twins

RICKY MARTIN's baby news hasn't been well received by everyone - one leading Latino Catholic cardinal has slammed the pop star for acting without dignity.
The Puerto Rican singer recently fathered twin boys, born to a surrogate mother, who is rumoured to be a cousin of the singer.
And, following on from congratulations from his pop peers, those who aren't happy about Martin's new paternal role are speaking out now.
The cardinal of Honduras, Oscar Andres Rodriguez, accuses the singer of going against human dignity.
On a visit to Chile, the Catholic leader said, "What Martin did diminishes the dignity of a human being. You can't just buy or rent life. It's even worse when someone famous and in the public eye is doing it."
And he isn't alone - Mexican talk show host Esteban Arce has also spoken out against Martin.
On his show Matutino Express, Arce said, "I don't think it's right to deny children of maternal figures, just because you have a big ego."

The mexican journalist´s comments miss the central issue. Martin, by having children through surrogate gestancy, is not showing a big ego but tacitly confirming what has been rumored for years, namely, that he´s gay. Don´t be surprised that, in a few years, he comes out of the closet.

I think he'll make an excellent father. He wanted this role and because he hasn't found his mate doesn't mean his children will suffer. Some are not lucky to find a suitable companion and why should they wait for children? Yes, in an ideal world/situation, parents should be together to have children. But times, they are a changing. Congrats on your family.Dianna Wells Shire, author "The Ordinary Life of a Military Woman"

Frankly, I am an older male, and I would have been quite happy to have Ricky as a (single) father. God knows there are enough single mothers in this country. Why not a single father, and one like Ricky? His children will be quite fortunate. The prelate should shut up since he has no advice to offer.

Ricky Martin-CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS!-He is not the first celebrity, nor the last, that made this very personal choice.-I'm very happy that Ricky Martin found a way to keep his sons baby pictures private. At least for right now, it won't be for long. -Who cares about certain negative media gossip about him. -I will buy the magazines when Ricky decides to be on them. (both with and without the boys) -RICKY MARTIN is the TOTAL PACKAGE. He is SEXY, SENSUAL, and PASSIONATE.
