The Inquisition picks up steam (which is hot air).... If the leaked Vatican "instruction" on gay priests turns out to be true, how will gay candidates prove a 3 year period of celibacy? Isn't it a bogus requirement anyway, since the "instruction" also goes on to bar those with a "tendency"-- even "intellectually"-- toward homosexuality? Sounds as if you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. Well, here's an idea: you just deny ever thinking about homosexuality. You'll then be part of an established church tradition: if you don't acknowledge it, it doesn't exist.
