In a statement released August 31, Archbishop Naumann said “we cannot ignore” that the majority of abuse cases in the Pennsylvania abuse report involved “homosexual acts.” Priests need to be able to articulate why homosexual acts are “always seriously sinful.” Pope Benedict “gave guidance to seminaries and vocation ministries regarding the nonacceptance for priestly formation those with deep-seated homosexual tendencies. All candidates for the seminary have to be able to give evidence for their capacity of living celibate chastity with both integrity and joy.”
