“As for gay priests, we know that there have been and still are gay priests. If they are celibate, then it doesn’t matter who they are celibate with.
If they are not celibate, that is a sin. And if they are not celibate with an altar boy, then we’ll hear all about it, except for the part where they’re gay.”
Sorry, you may want gay priests in the Catholic Church. I sure don’t. They are still thinking in sexual terms about being attracted to other men, which is a distinct deviation from the norm. They are not psychologically healthy, and I surely don’t think they should be around all that temptation (other male priests, altar boys) just in case they pass beyond thought and into temptation. You want to take that chance? Do you know what the recidivism rate for sexual deviants is? Very, very high. Do you want to take a chance on a gay priest (in thoughts only of course) around your child?
You're delusional if you believe that there haven't been gay priests before the present.
