Catholic Cardinal Slams Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin's recent baby news isn't exactly joyous for everyone. While Ricky is just getting used to diaper duty, a Catholic Cardinal in Honduras is criticizing his life choices.

Latino Cardinal of Honduras Oscar Andres Rodriguez is accusing Ricky Martin of going against human dignity. To refresh your memory, Martin just fathered twin boys with the help of a surrogate mother.

The Cardinal says, "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."

Not only that, but now Mexican talk show host Esteban Arce is chiming in, saying, "I don't think it's right to deny children of maternal figures, just because you have a big ego."

Is it just us, or our these guys missing the point here?! Ricky Martin
wanted to be a father, and now he is. He pretty much stays out of the public eye, and minds his own business, so we think people should do the same.
