Not content to end a banner month as far a ridiculousness goes by condemning the use of condoms in Africa despite the rampant spread of AIDS and excommunicating the family of a 9 year old rape victim for allowing her to get an abortion, the Catholic Church is now taking steps to ensure that gays don’t slip past their gaydar and make it into the priesthood by testing them before allowing them to serve.
THE Melbourne Catholic Church has embraced a Vatican recommendation to test potential priests for sexual orientation.
Under the guidelines, potential priests who “appear” to be gay must be banned.
The head of the Vatican committee that made the recommendations has made it clear celibate gays should also be banned because homosexuality is ‘‘a type of deviation’’.
So I wonder what will be on that test? Score well on fashion and interior design questions and you get washed out of priest school? Is a pedophilia test going to be given to all potential priests as well?
