Sometimes, I wonder, why bother…
Servus Fidelis gets a spot on my hourly Hall of Shame for the following comment:
Acceptance of homosexual clergy, women priestesses, contraception, et al.
Its easy to call someone a pessimist. It is harder to admit that I am calling for a return to what has worked for over 2000 years. I call that optimistic . . . because it will never happen in my lifetime.
Contraception is clearly a concern but the problem with homosexual clergy and women priestesses is some do not think women priestesses are problematic and the difficulty with homosexual priests is that many gay men have remained closeted leaving it impossible almost to do a background check on the sexual activity of the priest.
But hey, we could emphasize Cardinal Danielou or even a ton of medieval clergy who broke their vows of celibacy non-stop. Wasn’t Erasmus a son of a priest? What about those Popes in history and their sexual fornications? All of a sudden, homosexual priests are bad? And further, fornication of priests was considered quite heinous as well even while it was happening.
