Along the same lines, I think I recall reading here that in the early 1990's the Church made a formal policy shift to explicitly bar homosexuals from entering the priesthood.  Is that true?  Where is that documented? 

I've wondered about this myself- a lot of the abuses I heard began in the 1950s- pre-Vatican II.
