Sorry, Father

As reported at cnn.com.
"VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican says sexually active homosexuals and those who support "gay culture" are unwelcome in the priesthood unless the candidate has overcome homosexual tendencies for at least three years, according to a church document posted on the Internet by an Italian Catholic news agency.

The long-awaited document is scheduled to be released by the Vatican next Tuesday. A church official who has read the document confirmed the authenticity of the Internet posting by the Adista news agency."

Four years ago, the world priased Father Mychal Judge, the first person official listed as killed in the 9/11 attack. If the Vatican's proposal had been in place back then, Father Mychal wouldn't have been able to be ordained or to live out his calling as a priest.
