I've been busy, but that doesn't mean I haven't been paying attention.

This news from Rome a couple of weeks ago has me puzzled. It was well-covered at The Pope Blog. and the New York Times.
A new Vatican document excludes from the priesthood most gay men, with few exceptions, banning in strong and specific language candidates ''who are actively homosexual, have deep-seated homosexual tendencies, or support the so-called 'gay culture.' ''
O.K. Wait just a minute. Isn't the priesthood supposed to be for men who are celibate? And, if you're celibate, does your sexual orientation really matter?

Just wondering.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.
