Sexual orientation not an issue in L.A.

USA TODAY reports ...

Cardinal Roger Mahony, Archbishop of Los Angeles, "has said over and over that he chooses potential priests by focusing on their ability to lead a holy, chaste life and the ability to lead other people closer to Jesus," archdiocese spokesman Tod Tamberg says.

"The seminary application process should treat all people and their gifts distinctly, with no variation based on orientation," he said.

But being 'gay' in Mahony's L.A. is a plus.

Yeah, right, Cardinal. And you don't discriminate against orthodox candidates, either.

How does anyone believe him anymore?

I notice that the perversion would come under the heading of 'gift' in this archdiocese. We shall shortly begin to see what this 'gift' is going to cost the 'faithful' aas the 500 plus abuse cases make their way to court.

I guess any word from Rome doesn't apply to Los Angeles. Just like we don't have any liturical abuses either.

Send your "gifts" now to cover the costs of the diocese's other "gifts."
