Francis: Homosexual men don't belong in priesthood

From American Spectator, the pederast legacy of Wright, Wuerl and Dinardo - see here.

For some 28 years, I have been saying that homosexual men do not belong in a seminary and that such persons should not be ordained. In fact, in a piece written for The Wanderer back in the 1990s entitled "A possibility wrought with dire implications," I wrote: "On October 1, 1986, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith published an Instruction entitled 'Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on Pastoral Service for Homosexual Persons, signed by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and approved by Pope John Paul II. In this Instruction, Cardinal Ratzinger writes, 'It is necessary to point out that the particular inclination of a homosexual person, though not a sin in itself, nevertheless constitutes a more or less strong tendency to an intrinsically evil behavior from the moral standpoint. For this reason, the very inclination should be considered as objectively disordered.' (No. 3).

This would appear to be especially significant since Canon 1040 of the Code of Canon Law states that: 'Persons who are affected by a perpetual impediment, which is called an irregularity, or a simple impediment, are prevented from receiving orders.' Now, irregularities arise either from defect (ex defectu) or from crime (ex delicto). It seems clear to me that a homosexual inclination, which Cardinal Ratzinger has referred to as "objectively disordered," constitutes an irregularity ex defectu.

In fact, when asked by a Bishop if it is licit to confer priestly ordination to men with manifest homosexual tendencies, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments replied with a letter signed by Jorge Cardinal Medina Estevez which stated that, 'Ordination to the diaconate and the priesthood of homosexual men or men with homosexual tendencies is absolutely inadvisable and imprudent and, from the pastoral point of view, very risky. A homosexual person, or one with a homosexual tendency is not, therefore, fit to receive the sacrament of Holy Orders."

I was ridiculed for saying this. In fact, I have been referred to as "mentally ill" and as being somehow "unstable" for saying this.

Now, under pressure from a laity sick and tired of the rampant homosexual abuse culture, look at what Francis is finally saying here.

Morning sunshine!

It's time to offer up corrupt priests and bishops to the secular authorities...burn it all down as a recent article explains.

You are in no way "mentally ill" for speaking out on this subject. The honor of the priesthood must be protected and defended. God bless you Paul,for your consistent defense of Holy Mother Church. May St. Michael protect you,and Our Lady reward you.

The instructions "Religiosorum Institutio" issued in 1961, just before the council by the Pope John XXIII, were more restrictive than those issued by Card. Ratzinger

Read peculiarly: §30. "Those To Be Excluded; Practical Directives"

"Advancement to religious vows and ordination should be barred to those who are afflicted with evil tendencies to homosexuality or pederasty, since for them the common life and the priestly ministry would constitute serious dangers."

They were disregarded or even discarded as "outdated" in the wake of the modernist euphory of Vatican II council.
