While the Brooklyn archdiocese would not allow seminarians to be interviewed for the New York Times article, the director of vocations the Rev. Kevin J. Sweeney said:
...the new rules were not the order of battle for a witch hunt. “We do not say that homosexuals are bad people,” he said. “And sure, homosexuals have been good priests. But it has to do with our view of marriage,” he said. “A priest can only give his life to the church in the sense that a man gives his life to a female spouse. A homosexual man cannot have the same relationship. It’s not about condemning anybody. It’s about our world view.”
WHhhhhat? I *REALLY* think someone it taking the Biblical metaphor (i.e. the Church is seen as the bride of Christ) a wee bit too literally. It's just absolute insanity. Then there is the very thorny question of several women as being described in the New Testament as Apostles (in the narrow meaning of that word).
EDIT: Interesting thread with an Augustinian seminary student, who takes issue with women apostles and other things.
