The Chickens Come Home to Roost

Speaking of seminaries (see above): Sr. Schuth does not indicate in her article that “gay” seminarians or faculty “pose a particular difficulty.” But Fr. Andrew Greeley thinks they do. In his column on “Priests and AIDS” (The American Catholic, March), Greeley indicates that he takes the vow of celibacy very seriously, and he notes that noncelibate homosexual priests do great damage to the Church.

Greeley informs us that at some seminaries, professors “tell their students that they’re gay and take some of them to gay bars, and gay students sleep with each other….” Greeley is “appalled,” saying he does “not understand why bishops tolerate” such situations. He’s also appalled that the Church appears “more tolerant” of noncelibate homosexual priests than immoral heterosexual priests: “If I had a habit of picking up women in yuppie bars, they [priests] tell me, the bishop would call me in immediately. But they tell me gay priests can hang around gay bars and pick up lovers and nothing happens to them.”
