A renowned Belgian prankster posted footage Wednesday showing the leader of Belgium's Roman Catholic Church Andre-Joseph Leonard being hit four times by custard pies.
Posted on YouTube by practical joker 'The Glooper,' who has already successfully targeted French President Nicolas Sarkozy and billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, the clip was filmed during a speaking engagement at the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve, near Brussels.
Footage obtained by AFP shows a stunned Leonard's face and black winter coat covered in a white foam-like product.
It is the second time the archbishop has been targeted.
Leonard enraged gays last year when he suggested AIDS stemmed from the wrath of God, labelling the disease "a sort of intrinsic justice."
One of those who ran up and slapped a custard pie in Leonard's face told Belgian media that "for all those homosexuals who daren't tell their parents they are gay, for all those young girls who want to have an abortion, he absolutely deserved it."
