Re: New Vatican Document on the Priesthood

Dave: As Diogenes points out at Catholic World News, the new Vatican instruction is not a liberalization of the 1961 ban on homosexuals in the priesthood. It in effect upholds that wise ban, the abandonment of which in practice has led the Church into endless headaches, doctrinal relativism, and a lampooned priesthood. Some people will spin the document as draconian; others will spin it as the Church’s minor evolutionary step away from tradition. The truth is that it just reiterates the rationales of the 1961 ban.
