He doesn’t have a problem with gay priests? Really?
His opinion is not in line with the Bible.
I think he distinguishes between those with a gay orientation who nevertheless are able to practice self-control and those who don’t practice self-control.
He believes (I think), that gay or straight, priests are all subject to sexual temptations ( same or opposite sex). It depends on how one controls the temptation.
The Froman Catholic response to this is basically "Go sit in the corner and color. We are Rome, we are 100% correct in all we do!"
