Do you know what unacceptable means? If homosexuality in not accepted within the Priesthood itself, why then is there not a purge of the homosexual clergy that seems so prevalent within the RC Church? These Priests are known to each other, and even called out by the Pope. Just because the Priests do not wear labels or patches to your satisfaction does not mean that they are not known to their peers. Are you now seriously trying to say that people that integrate with your daily life would have no clue but yet are somehow stupid if they cannot figure out what your chosen identity to be?
Very strange argument. Being "openly gay" in the Catholic church means surviving a Church attempt to remove anyone who is a suspected homosexual, so if they are not removed, they must be "openly" gay..

do you not know what it means to live out in the open? its ok if you dont understand, but dont pretend that checking a box on an anonymous poll is living out.
got it, so you clearly dont understand what being out is.

thanks for clarifying.

:rolleyes:
Are you aware that no RC clergy, hetero or gay can have sexual relationships? Gays and straights within the clergy are all subject to the same rules. The fact that the the gays are not defrocked for having sexual relationships solely due their status means that they are accepted by the Vatican from the top down and why the Vatican has no desire to further the issue other than to recommend that they stay celibate.

How did you come to this unique conclusion about Catholicism?
Thinking about a sin is the same as committing it, I have been told. You are not RC, right?
