So people who happen to have sinful inclinations but through perseverance fight against them successfully can't go to Heaven?  You're saying none of the saints have ever had inclinations toward sin? 

Behaving effeminate, "bending," and such are obviously steps on the road to Hell, but to say that having an inclination toward any particular sin in and of itself bars one from being a saint is going a bit far.

I absolutely agree.  We ALL have a vocation to Sainthood, regardless of our inclinations.  It's how we deal with them that gets us to heaven, not that we have them.
