A Little Gay Is A-Okay!

Rest easy all you "transitory" gay people. You're still welcome in the Roman Catholic church.

All of you "Deep-seated" gay people, however, are shit outta luck. Sorry.

From the NY Times, belatedly:
A new Vatican document excludes from the priesthood most gay men, with few exceptions, banning in strong and specific language candidates "who are actively homosexual, have deep-seated homosexual tendencies, or support the so-called 'gay culture.' "

The document appears to allow ordination only for candidates who experienced "transitory" homosexual tendencies that were "clearly overcome" at least three years before ordination as a deacon, the last step before priesthood. It does not define "overcome."
Seems simple enough to me. If, by simple, you mean the exact polar opposite of simple.

What if you just really like musicals and have a man crush on Sean Connery?

Cause... ya know, I have this friend...

You'll have to consult the Official Vatican Handbook On Identifying The Gays. I'm pretty sure that man crushes are now strictly forbidden, though a love of musical theater doesn't qualify you as "Deep-seated," just a little goofy.
