Popes have been issuing orders against the homosexuals within the priestly ranks for centuries without noticeable effect so Benedict's decrees will not likely have much effect either on the homosexual lobby.
Sadly, my brother-in-law, an agnostic is referring to the conclave as a Namibia meetiing
yech, disgusting perverts. Infuriates me when he says treat the abusers with love. They are trying to destroy the church from within and are doing satan’s bidding.
I don’t know amuch about the catholic church. But from the outside looking in it looks like a hotbed of homosexuality and homophobia. They are also pretty cozy with the democrats. I don’t know how they stay in business.

It is not a religion problem, a celibacy problem, or a church problem, or a doctrine problem. It is homosexual and sin problem, and a sin problem of those who are and were silent even if not actively abusing others. IMHO making homosexual acts a crime needs to be brought back, as it was for hundreds or actually in some cultures, thousands of years.
Anyone wanting on/off either ping list, freepmail me.

I suspect there is a huge spiritual battle being fought right now in the Catholic Church. The fact that two cardinal have been excluded from voting in the coming conclave tells me quite a lot.
