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??

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.

It may be an internal debate, but I hope it involves more than your Latin rite — the Uniates have the same reasons we have for allowing married men to be ordained to the diaconate and presbyterate, and rhetoric of that sort is thus an attack on folks in your own communion as well as harmful to relations with the Orthodox.
