Vatican document will bar homosexuals from the priesthood

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - A new Vatican document will bar from the priesthood practicing homosexuals, men whose gay tendencies are "deeply rooted," or who openly espouse a gay culture, a leading Italian newspaper reported on Friday.

"The Church cannot admit to the priesthood those who practice homosexuality, have deeply rooted homosexual tendencies or those who support the so-called 'gay culture,'" [Il Giornale of Milan] quoted the document as saying.

The church is going into an era of good feeling. Pope Benedict XVI is as good as John Paul II. The liberals hate these two holy men because they are teaching the truth.My meditation has been for a long time already, "Son of Mary have pity on me, Son of God, hear my plea." Well God is hearing my plea, kick all unhealthy people out of the seminary and be positive about who you are. Embrace the church of God and live out the promises from baptism. People forget the forgiveness of baptisim and forget that we die in Christ as we live in Christ too.

My only hesitation Quintero, is that you're quoting an Italian periodical, and while I would stop short of calling the Italian media sensationalistic, they're not exactly known for responsible journalism, though then again neither is the American media, All I'm saying is, let's wait to hear it from B16, before we pop out a bottle of the bubbly.

Do you really think it's going to matter?
Homosexuals are infamous for being rebellious and disobedient. Oh, and liars too. Plus, they have too much support from people like Mahoney. I say it's not going to matter at all.
Keep praying, bob.

My mother was in Rome with Bishop Aquila and got home tonight. On the drive back from Tulsa OK. She asked the Bishop about the seminary preceedings. He said it will be in a group, only notes will be taken and those notes will not be shown to other bishops there. They will be sealed and sent to Rome for whomever is responsible for looking them over. She told him that in a Taxi ride back to the hotel with 3 other people.

sodomites are crazy, we should be ashamed as a society for letting them diddle each other, after all we wouldn't let a guy who thought he was napoleon fornicate with other crazy people, why stop when its a man who thinks he's a woman?

Let's wait until the thing comes out. I think in the end nothing will change. Unless the seminarian is obviously, flamingly gay he'll be ordained.
