The cover-letter accompanying the Vatican’s ban on all gay seminarians has some added detail. The policy is to be stringently enforced; and celibate gay priests are also to be barred from any teaching role in seminaries. Again, what matters is not how good a teacher or theologican they are; not whether they abide by their vows to celibacy; what matters is that they are gay. That is now itself a bar. Tell me how this isn’t unvarnished discrimination. To allow gay priests to remain in their orders, and then to treat them as second class priests? Am I the only person gob-smacked by this?
