Dakay said the 39-year-old florist, whose identity was withheld, had no one to blame but himself for the scandal.
A video, circulated on the video-sharing Internet site YouTube, of a medical procedure showed a 15-centimeter long spray canister being extracted from the rectum of a patient.
This generated a storm of public criticism against VSMMC and the concerned doctors and hospital officials could face a congressional investigation.
The video showed the hospital staff laughing and clapping their hands when the canister was extracted, which is a violation of the patient’s privacy.
Dakay told Catholic Church-run Radio Veritas that the patient would not have been caught in an embarrassing situation if he had not engaged in a homosexual act in the first place.
“From day one, we are asking (the public) not to forget or to bypass the main issue, the homosexual act was done very badly and now they are talking about what the doctors did wrong. They should be reminded of the wrong act that the guy did to the homosexual,” Dakay said.
“People are blaming the doctors for what they did, but I think they should blame the patient for what he did,” he said.”
