Rome: No Homosexuals in Seminaries w/UPDATE

Bettnet reports that B-16 signed off on the prohibition in August and the official release will follow the Synod on the Eucharist.

The text, which was approved by Pope Benedict at the end of August, says that homosexual men should not be admitted to seminaries even if they are celibate, because their condition suggests a serious personality disorder which detracts from their ability to serve as ministers

This should trigger a bunch of "outrage" and "concern" from all sorts of folks. The MSM, of course, who will NOT tell you that the policy has actually been around since 1958 (or so) but was ignored. Some current seminarians will be unhappy--not too many, we suspect.

The loudest screams will emanate from certain already-ordained men and their feminazi enablers, largely in the USA, secondarily in Europe.

For the rest of the world, this is a non-event.

By the way: last year the Archdiocese paid $1 million in legal fees and $4+million in reparations and other costs on the abuse problem largely caused by homosexual priest-predators. Up through mid-2005, Milwaukee alone has paid out over $11 million.
