There is No Such Thing as a Homosexual Catholic Priest

On the Greek: arsenokoithV is not found elsewhere, St Paul combines two words: an old form of "man" and " having sex". I'm not sure where the translation "abusers of themselves with men" is coming from, the two italicized words are not indicated by the etymology . It's just means someone who has sex with men.
Malakoi, on the other hand, is a little trickier. I found examples in several of the Greek historians, but mostly Thucydides, that use that word to mean "cowardly, a man who ran from the battle". That would support Quis' exerpts from the Fathers which interpret that word to mean someone overfond of luxuries and ease.
