A Roman Catholic Riddle
2005.09.24 (Sat) 14:28
Question: What do you get when you refuse to admit homosexuals to the clergy?
Answer: A lot of empty seminaries.
The Vatican even wants to ban the celibate homosexuals now. We can't even figure out what appreciable difference there is between a celibate homosexual and a celibate heterosexual. A keen fashion sense? Priests wear vestments, so that shouldn't matter. Perhaps they're worried that the homosexual priests would play show tunes in place of the hymns? Hey, that could only liven up an otherwise dull experience, if you ask us.
But seriously, folks, the narrow-minded and misinformed Vatican officials don't seem to realize that it's more likely to be the mandatory celibacy than the latent homosexuality that pushes their priests to molest kids. These poor guys become, to use the vernacular, "prison gay," and since young boys are the people with whom these priests spend most of their time, said young boys are more likely to be the recipients of said priests' advances.
And let's not forget that there don't seem to be any valid studies suggesting a statistical correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia.
Poor Roman Catholic Church. Even with probably the most lapsed Christians in the world (or at least in the United States) among their followers, they just don't seem able to catch up to the Twenty-First Century.
