Jesus said ‘Sin no more’. Why couldn’t the Pope have said-plainly-” If you are homosexual and PRACTICE homosexuality you CANNOT be a priest. If you break the vow of celibacy you willingly took- you are NO LONGER a priest.”? Straight talk-no ambiguity.

I am not an expert but believe that Pope Benedict XVI said just about that.

Don't you know? Once a priest, always a priest?
