Gays Should Not Be Priests
The church would be rightly criticized if it deliberately allowed men to enter the priesthood who had a strong erotic attraction to children or men who were heterosexual but could not or had not completely resolved to live celibate lives for whatever reason. Yet, many accuse the church of discrimination when it seeks to ban gay men, especially because those men will be in close contact with other males and, when ordained, may often be involved with pastoral work with teen boys.
