The smackdown continues from RomeLiberals who proclaim themselves “Catholic” are up in arms over the latest declaration from the Vatican on the status of the sacred priesthood. The Church has now made it abundantly clear that men who have a homosexual tendency have no place in the sacred priesthood, and neither to men who in any way support the “gay lifestyle.”
In doing this, Benedict XVI is declaring that not only will he not tolerate sodomy and pedophilia in the priesthood, but he will not tolerate people entering our seminaries who think it is alright to live in sin.
I find it more than just a slight coincidence that this declaration was issued at the same time an apostolic visitation of U.S. seminaries is taking place.
Heretics beware: The housecleaning is well underway.
