Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Intolerance is Next to Godliness in Benedict's Dictionary

NY Times reports that a new Vatican document, whose contents have been slowly leaking to the press, has now been officially released. It bans from the clergy in clear and precise language all those, "who are actively homosexual, have deep-seated homosexual tendencies, or support the so-called 'gay culture.'" [emphasis added]

MSNBC has also reported over the past several months that despite the increasing Catholic flock, the number of Catholic priests has shrunk over 26% since 1980. Following its continuing refusal to ordain women, this new official hostility toward homosexuals (and anyone sympathetic toward gays!) is yet another example of the Catholic church shooting itself in the foot. If they keep this up, there will be nobody left in the seminaries except the really dedicated pedophiles.

Interesting ... the story I saw (posted above) has a different slant.

I think it very funny that what Ratzinger is on about is to make sure that the sex that priests aren't  having is straight. It reminds me of the black humor about the Bosnian conflict, that you can tell the Croats, Serbs, and Bozniaks apart because "The Croats never go to the Catholic church, the Serbs never go to the Orthodox church, and the Bozniaks never go to the Mosque."

The church is too obsessed with sex period. It is all the repression.
