There is No Such Thing as a Homosexual Catholic Priest

Define "not a Christian".  Do you mean not baptized, or baptized and apostatized?  I'm sure you're willing to admit that baptism is indelible.

1.  That baptized persons can apostasize need not be addressed here. 
2.  No one can be a Christian who is not converted, which is to say, made a new creature in Christ through the washing of regeneration and the renewal of the spirit (Titus 3:5).  Individuals who persist in mortal sins should not be considered in a state of grace.  To self-identify as a homosexual person is a denial of the properties of the new birth and a resistance of grace.  Again, the individual in this circumstance may not be fully culpable as it flows from unsound doctrine.
3.  Do not exclude the neccesity of Faith for the baptized:
He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.  Mark 16:16
