Gay priests?

We recently heard much criticism of the Vatican's reported decision to ban homosexual-oriented priests, even if celibate. It's actually a topic I had intended to write about, but procrastinated until it was no longer topical.

I guess it's just as well. It turns out the initial reports were wrong. I wonder if apologies and retractions will be forthcoming?


As long as they don't "...show an "overwhelming attraction" to homosexual culture "even if it is only intellectually.""??? What the hell is that all about?

I was aware of this aberration fully twnety years and many lawsuits ago.

Even in the 1980s, there were stories of Catholic priest abuses, ironically (sorry, Andrew Sullivan) almost exclusively towards young boys.

The gays (again, see Sullivan), have argued that pedofiles are not necessarily gay or straight.

I agree.

But a profession that enables males who have no interest in females to achieve beatification among the populace for a sacrifice which means nothing is just too enticing.

Nobody should be surprised at what has happened.
