Now here’s an interesting question. If a Catholic priest, sworn to celibacy, decides he needs a bit of rumpy-pumpy, does it matter whether it’s with a man or a woman?
Surely, it shouldn’t matter either way. He’s sinned, and that’s that.
It’s being discussed in USA Today’s “Faith and Reason” section.
Indeed, it’s being posited whether the Catholic priesthood is a predominantly gay vocation. Chances are that it is, along with Anglicanism. If gays are not in a majority, they’re certainly well represented, and I did hear it said recently, but forget where, that, were it not for the gay men in the Anglican priesthood, the whole edifice would fall apart.
