    Dear Holy Father, There is a certain Fr. Garcia who needs to become a bishop. In Christ, John

    I wonder if Fr. Garcia would have written this if Archbishop Levada were still here.

    For every Fr. Garcia, there are, perhaps, four who would proclaim the general holiness and piety of homosexual priests. This despite the fact that, as Fr. Garcia correctly points out, the documented incidents of clergy sex abuse were overwhelmingly homosexual in nature and had nothing to do with pedophilia, but everything to do with a disordered attraction to physically mature males. Pray that the Holy Father does the right thing and ENFORCES the ban against homosexual seminarians.

    Bishop Hanifen once said that if the seminaries were conducting psyche evaluations before he became a priest, they would never have let him become a priest. I think the "Thought Police" would actually have liked him, but this might explain the unusual remarks made by a priest that Diogenes links to above. Thanks Di, it's always good to hear from another priest with common sense.
