This does create difficulties for same-sex-attracted men who are trying to achieve the inward peace of chaste singleness for the Lord. With men, they tend to develop crushes, uncomfortable stirred-up feelings. But they can't normally just go and hang out with women; nor are they necessarily suited for a starkly solitary (hermit-like) existence.
The SSA men I have known who are trying to walk in chastity, have had quite difficult struggles. Really, they need our prayers and our understanding support.
The Catholic chastity support group Courage has this as its aim; unfortunately, they remain a small fledgling group.
This Pope has yet to demonstrate to me that he’s a very deep thinker. Certainly he hasn’t thought deeply about this issue.
We already know from history that homosexual men in the Catholic clergy have been preying on young seminarians and boys all the way from local parishes into the Vatican is certainly not a recent aberration. The Orthodox tradition, which does and has always allowed married priests, does not have the same problems as the Roman Catholic clergy does in this area - at least not to the extent, anyway. Could Pope Francis be slowly moving towards relaxing the celibacy rule for priests and would this help to ameliorate the homosexual "problem" for the church?
