It's just been announced that the official text of the "Instruction on the Criteria of Vocational Discerment Regarding Persons with Homosexual Tendencies in Light of their Admission to Seminaries and Sacred Orders" (preliminary English translation here) will be formally available to the journalists accredited to the Holy See at 9 tomorrow morning, Rome time -- 3AM on the US East Coast. The document will be translated from the original Italian into German, French, English, Spanish and Portugese. There will be no press conference.

Will this 'official' announcement precipitate a fresh flood of news stories? Most of the mainstream media have already pre-announced the contents. What do you suppose will be their reaction, now that they have had time to organize their 'responses'?

I think the homosexual activists will continue what they've been doing, only I predict a shriller voice.
I also think the secularists will use this in any way they can as fodder for their 'undermine the Church' machine, as usual.

I'll also add that, in celebration of the 'holiday' season, the History channel has shown a string of "documentaries" casting doubt on canon law, pushing heresies, referring to Catholicism as 'mythology', and various assorted other diatribes against the Church and Christianity. But this is nothing new. After all, this type of thing has been going on for nearly 2000 years. But I have faith, and can see from the past, that God raises saints when we need them. Benedict XVII is a powerful force of God's will against evil on earth.

Of course. They won't pass up another chance to decry the alleged Vatican "witch hunt" and to misrepresent Catholic teaching in accordance with gay activist dogma.

That's what happens when you use a vanity headline instead of the one at the link. If you hit the abuse button and ask real nice, I'll bet a mod would fix the headline for you.

Amen!! Is Gansweing his official 'taster'? :-) By now his enemies list is in steady growth. I am truly humbled by the actions already taken and implemented by B16 in only 7 short months. May the Archangel Michael shield and protect him.
