Yea, to me gay is a verb.
Priests face terrible temptations. Celibacy is a challenge for both gay and straight priests.
Priests who break their vows are not spending enough time with Christ in humble prayer. When we cease to pray, we lose the ability to resist our temptations. Holds true for the ordained and the laity.
He did not state that priests should enter the clergy. In fact the Church states that they should not do so, as temptation is there
I don’t think it’s an oxymoron, because the question, “Can heterosexuals be celibate?” is also a valid question.
There are plenty of heterosexuals who have made the personal decision to remain celibate for a higher personal goal.
Well, it’s not like the church has ever had any problems with gay priests before...
I agree. The "gays" have been very successful in making the discussion about the fact that they are gay and people hate them just because they are gay, rather than the behavior that goes along with the "gay" lifestyle.
