Church- gay- sex- celibacy and phedophilia.

And I quote:

The Roman Catholic Church requires its priests to refrain from any sexual relationship, whether heterosexual or homosexual.. So one might think that sexual orientation of any aspirant for the priesthood would be a non-issue especially in light of the distinction the church has drawn between homosexual conduct, which is considered sinful, and homosexual orientation, which is not.

Recently The Vatican issue a statement reemphasizing that even chaste gay men are to be barred from the priesthood. Never mind that large numbers of gay priest- (estimates range from 25% to 50%) already serve the faithful with most adhering to their vow of celibacy.

The Vatican’s hard line against chaste gay priests seems to be inspired by the condemnation the church justly received for its passive response to the sexual abuse of minors
(most of them male –by the way!!!!!) by some priests.

Pope Benedict XVI conceded during his visit to the United States this year that homosexuality isn’t the same as pedophilia. That statement was rebuke to conservative Catholics, and others, who have attempted to equate the two.

This is another reason why I don’t go to church in a very long time.
