A recent CNS story contains the following paragraph:

As for whether or not the church should examine its current practice of ordaining men who may have a homosexual orientation, Bishop Galante said, "Orientation itself is not an impediment to ordination. ... Is there anything that says God can't give them the gift of celibacy?"

No one doubts that God can give homosexual priests the gift of celibacy, your Excellency. The problem is why so many return the gift to the Giver, unused.
