Homosexual Clergy invited to leave the Catholic Priesthood

The Italian Socialist magazine Panorama, recently ran an expose on three homosexual "priests" of the Diocese of Rome.

Panorama, famous for it secularly ultra-liberalism and militant atheism, used sweeping generalizations of all priests of the Diocese of Rome, which is under the direct leadership of Pope Benedict XVI.

In response to Panorama, the Diocese of Rome released the following statement (in part); (Emphasis mine)
"The essence of the Church of Rome is not found in those with "'double lives,' who haven't understood what 'Catholic priesthood' (is) and should not have become priests."

"Know that no one forces them to remain priests, exploiting only the benefits."

"Coherence would require them to come into the open. We don't wish to hurt them, but we cannot accept that due to their behavior the integrity of the all the rest might be tarnished."

Put them to death or leave them on a deserted isle or a howling wilderness so they can't spread their lifestyle or diseases to the rest of us!

Um, no. They are people with souls created by God. Their sins are rampant, but so are mine. They must seek forgiveness, repent, and live according to God's wishes, or they must be dismissed to live in their sins. They MUST NOT be abused in any way. They can choose to cut themselves off from the Love of God, but we cannot hinder them from seeking and finding the forgiveness and repentance of a Loving God.

TCN, my remarks may seem very unloving to you, but I still stand by them. These sodomites are not interested in repentance. They want to flaunt their filthy lifestyle right in front of the Pope's nose. If they wanted to change, they would have done it years ago. While indeed they are people with souls, the Bible is very clear that the soul that sins will die. And no one, myself included, is trying to hinder them from seeking repentance and lovegiveness. What you fail to understand is that the sodomites are not, for the most part, seeking those things. What they want is to continue in a lifestyle that will endanger the rest of us. The church can excommnicate the sodomites in our midst, but if society is to protect itself, exile or the death penalty is the only way to deal with it.

Scotju,

I am sorry I am the staunchest supporter of excommunicating gay priests especially those that persist in sabotage of the church. However a catholic cannot support the the statements you make.

For you to claim that these people are beyond conversion is to doubt the power of God's love. I am pretty damed certain that Paul before he became Paul killed many innocent christians, and it took the hand of God knocking him blind in order to get his attention.

I will never defend the homosexual lifestyle but I will battle for every soul God made until they have reached final damnation.

I think you confuse this blogs zeal for the clean up of the church and love of church tradition for the type of "believe or die" mentality of the muslim cult.

Compare your statements to those made by saints, I think you may be a bit embarrassed. Its OK, we all get carried away with our passions from time to time, I know I do!
