Vatican addresses ordination of homosexuals

By John Thavis
Catholic News Service

 VATICAN CITY "“ A long-awaited Vatican document said the church cannot allow priestly ordination of men who are active homosexuals, who have 'deep-seated" homosexual tendencies or who support the 'gay culture."

Such people have serious problems relating properly to men and women and present a risk of 'negative consequences" that should not be underestimated, the document said.
