Vatican set to ban gay men joining priesthood

Looks like the pope is finally going to shut the door on gay men joining the priesthood. Unlike some of it's protestant counterparts, the church has never recognized homosexuality as being normal, though it has allowed many homosexuals to become priests.

From the article:
HOMOSEXUALS, even those who are celibate, will be barred from becoming Roman Catholic priests under stricter rules soon to be released, according to reports yesterday.

A Church official "with authoritative knowledge of the new rules" was quoted as saying the question was not "if it will be published, but when", referring to the new ruling about homosexuality in Catholic seminaries.
