Faith or fetish?
If you’re going to be a gay priest then at least gather up the personal dignity necessary to be a gay priest for a religious institution that doesn’t discriminate against you, one that doesn’t scapegoat you to protect bishops who ignored sexual predators, one that doesn’t blame you for the breakdown of society and the family.
If the Klan’s hatred of minorities were but a small portion of their doctrine, they would still be morally repugnant. It’s difficult to imagine how gay Roman Catholic priests can endorse Church doctrine and still look at themselves in the mirror every morning, especially when better moral options for serving their faith exist. If their faith is so tied to Catholicism that they cannot abandon it for a healthier option, then faith, for them, becomes little more than the practice of a fetish. A fetish that is as unhealthy as any other and which has the potential to negatively affect other people more than most fetishes.
