An article in the Independent Digital (United Kingdom)
for May 1, 2001, was titled "Catholic church alarmed that priesthood is
becoming a 'gay profession.'" The report stated: "The Roman Catholic
priesthood in Britain is fast on its way to becoming a gay profession.
There are significantly more homosexuals among those training to be priests
than there are proportionately in the general population . . . [Priest]
James Overton, the rector of Allen Hall in Westminster diocese, has said 'a
sizeable number' of his students are now homosexual - a trend which could
cause 'enormous problems' in seminaries. Allen Hall's internet system was
closed down recently when pornography was found downloaded onto one of the
seminary's computers. . . . Taken together, all this suggests that a gay
subculture is emerging in some seminaries, similar to that which has
developed in the United States, where it has been suggested that as many as
a quarter of American priests are gay. It was reported last year that the
number of priests who had died of Aids was proportionally four times that
of the general population. (American seminaries now demand an Aids test
before ordination.)" Immorality has always been rampant among Catholic
priests, because of their unscriptural vow of "celibacy."
