New doc.. on same-sex attraction & the priesthood

Homosexuality and the priesthood revisited

“The candidate does not necessarily have to practice homosexuality (to be excluded.) He can even be without sin. But if he has this deeply seated tendency, he cannot be admitted to priestly ministry precisely because of the nature of the priesthood, in which a spiritual paternity is carried out.

Here we are not talking about whether he commits sins, but whether this
deeply rooted tendency remains.”
