The BBC has the headline, Vatican bars prelate in gay row, saying further, "The man, who works in the department in charge of clergy around the world, appeared on Italian TV earlier this month admitting that he was gay." Further on we learn, "The monsignor told his interviewer that he did not regard himself as being in a state of sin because of his homosexual activities but was forced to keep them secret because of the church's teaching on the subject. "
The church's teaching indeed. Odd that many pedophile priests, on the other hand, go on for years in their molestation of children before outside forces try to pry open those large wooden doors and look inside. Apparently being gay in the Catholic hierarchy is much more serious than being a pedophile.
