(DISCLOSURE: I am NOT Roman Catholic, however I have LOTS of Catholic friends, some of whom are priests ).

This is what I know of their policy — The church will, before ordaining someone to the priesthood, try their absolute best to make sure that the candidate IS NOT GAY.

If they, for any reason, find out that the person is gay, they will disqualify him.

However, they cannot guarantee that some will slip through the cracks.

*THAT* is what I am told.

Doesn’t quite work when people above them are GAY and those that are molested and complain are told that the Church Will Crush Them if the info becomes public.

For example:
Cardinal O Brien

I thought that he was saying the opposite in regards to homosexual church leadership, as long as they didn’t practice it sexually.

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis said. “We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.”

You are right. How about the parents being interviewed; the possible priest being interviewed multiple times, a two day psychological exam, numberous letters of recommendcation from friends and priest who knew the person, and it goes on and on.
