Based on his words, he sees nothing wrong with a homosexual priest.
RE: Based on his words, he sees nothing wrong with a homosexual priest.
Yes, that’s what I gather also.
His reasoning seems to be this — if you say there is a danger of sexual abuse from homosexual priests, then the same danger exists for heterosexual priests as well.
Given, this, if we ban priests with gay orientation, why shouldn’t we ban priests with straight orientations? after all, both are subject to temptations, albeit different types.
So, his emphasis is not on the orientation, but on self-control in light of temptation.
I thnk he has a oroblem with anyone having sex outside of marriage, and marriage is still defined as between a man and a woman in the Cathloc church.
I agree wizth him. It’s kind of like alcoholics. The problem isn’t that they are alcoholics. The problem is when they start drinking.
