    Actually, the point people to seem to forget is that Pope Benedict's directive to prohibit homosexuals from entering the priesthood has no foundation in the theology of the Church. Despite the oft repeated defense on the part Christians, Catholics in-particular; it is about the homosexual in the practical application of that phrase. The blanket exclusion of homosexual men from the priesthood under Pope Benedict is a prime example of that.

    Which should be no surprise. This is practiced in the evangelical world as well, Pastors cannot be people who blatantly live in sin, therefore no homosexual pastors in Bible beleiving churches.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Sadly, I don't have enough fingers or the patience to count the number of Evangelical pastors who blatantly live(d) in sin. I'm not even talking about people who blatantly live in sin. The prohibition under Pope Benedict expressly applied to anyone with a homosexual orientation.

    The "Nun revolution" is certainly something sweeping the Country and religion. Try yesterday's 60 minutes, all straightforward interviews.

    No connection was made by me between the Nuns and pedophile priests. I'll use separate paragraphs for everyone's pleasure in the future.
    Paragraphing is always nice. I'm a fan of coherence and readability. I don't need help with my “laundry,” so need to worry. Of course, most of us don’t regard providing links to back up one’s claim as an unreasonable obligation.

    BTW, I did Google "Nun revolution,” but there were no hits. Odd, since “everybody” is talking about this and “all” I have to do is check yesterday’s “60 Minutes.”

    I do find interesting, though, how your claim has changed from the Pope "consistently defending pedophiles" to his "defending pedophile priests during his first week." So maybe what you’re calling a “nun revolution” is really just some radical sisters trying—as they have since the late ‘60’s—to persuade the “establishment” that she should be allowed to enter the priesthood.

    I’m just guessing, though. So much “laundry” to do, you know.

    Oh yes, orientation, one's choice to love someone of the same sex.....

    It's the distinction, David, between who one is and what one does. The Catholic Church disapproves of any fornication.
