The attempt to normalize buggery is indeed abominable. But opposing it is not well served by embracing absurd positions like:

The “homo-heresy”, namely, the theology of homosexuality, denounced by Father Dario Oko (With the Pope against Homoheresy), goes hand in hand with the theology of married priests.

Really?? Equating the overthrow of traditional sexual morality with the normal practice of the Church outside the Patriarchate of Rome from Apostolic times down to the present? If married priests are equated with normalizing buggery by anyone with actual authority in the Latin church, I suppose we Orthodox could expect the Uniates to return en masse.

No. I missed that in the original post, thanks for pointing it out.

The author of that piece is a trad Catholic and has made an error of either phrasing or judgment.

In the Latin Church at present, the vast majority of those militating for a married priesthood tend to be heterodox and liberal (and therefore soft on homosexuality) while those defending the celibate priesthood tend to be conservative/orthodox or traditional.

Therefore Trads tend to lump anyone who supports a married priesthood together with those who are soft on homosexuality.

This is an internal debate. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the Eastern Orthodox and their reasons for a married priesthood.
