If the priest quoted by Sullivan had any self-respect, he would leave the priesthood for anything - street sweeping or academia - rather than live a lie. These are the vestigial symptoms of a time, long-gone, when unmarried siblings opted for a "vocation" to keep mom and dad happy. It was a safe option and way too convenient but the declining true vocations meant letting immature men into the seminaries. I don't think there was a gay agenda. it was a conflation of events.

Our only orientation should be towards the Will of Our Father, Who Has revealed to us through the Life, Passion, and Death of His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, that any act that does not Respect the Sacredness and Dignity of the Human Person, is not an act of Love, to begin with.
