Vatican Says No To Gay Priests


[Media Source*]

(MSNBC) The Vatican says homosexuals who are sexually active or support "gay culture" are unwelcome in the priesthood unless they have overcome their homosexual tendencies for at least three years, according to a church document posted on the Internet by an Italian Catholic news agency.

This will probably receive a negative response from the gay community, although one should realize that they are only following what already has been laid down in their text. Some people will probably object to this ruling, and if offended they probably should shop around for other churches within their communities.

(MSNBC) "Those people find themselves, in fact, in a situation that presents a grave obstacle to a correct relationship with men and women. One cannot ignore the negative consequences that can stem from the ordination of people with deeply rooted homosexual tendencies," it said.

"If instead it is a case of homosexual tendencies that are merely the expression of a transitory problem, for example as in the case of an unfinished adolescence, they must however have been clearly overcome for at least three years before ordination as a deacon."

Clearly the Vatican is attempting to avoid the infamous sex scandals that have been a burden in the United States (if not the world). The best way they can resolve this issue is to create an environment free from sexual temptation (regardless of orientation) which will help restore trust back into the priesthood.
