Should the Vatican ban gay men from becoming priests?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 23, 2005
“Like any other institution, the Vatican shouldn’t discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation.”
“No, because they take a vow of celibacy. If they stay true to that, then it shouldn’t matter. They would basically be classifying all homosexual men as pedophiles.”
“No. The Vatican has much more pressing issues to address than the sexuality of their priests.”
“I don’t think so. A person’s sexual orientation shouldn’t have anything to do with their status in the church.”
