There is No Such Thing as a Homosexual Catholic Priest

I don't have time right now to respond to each post that I was specifically addressed in or mentioned by name, but let me clear the air about Quis' accusations:

1.  I used the NKJV for the Scriptural quotes in the OP because (a) not everyone is comfortable with the archaic English in the D-R (my personal Bible) and (b) the NAB is not trustworthy.  In deference to Quis, I then dealt exclusively with the D-R.

2.  I have quoted extensively from the Sacred Scriptures, the Summa, CFD and Papal Instruction documents, the CCC, the Church's foremost expert on homosexuality, and referred to contemporary Catholic situations.  The only "Protestant" sources I have otherwise made use of were a Greek Scholar and Strong's Exhaustive Concordance to get at the original Hebrew and Greek tongues, as Divino Afflante Spiritu allows.   If anyone can refer me to a "Catholic" resource for a Hebrew and Greek Concordance, I am willing to use it instead.  I doubt seriously that the Hebrew and Greek words themselves carry a Catholic or Protestant meaning.  I have not referred to any Protestant commentary.

If you look at what I wrote, I'm specifically talking about what you cited specifically regarding the passage in 1 Cor., not about the rest of your claims.


1) Use a Protestant Bible to show it says "homosexuals"
2) Cite a Protestant scholar (one who has openly written denying the primacy of Peter) - Chrys C. Caragounis
3) Use a Protestant translation of the Greek
4) As far as Strong goes, there is nothing wrong with using it solely as a Concordance (i.e., where words appear in Scripture), but you are also adopting meaning from it.

Here is a Catholic concordance if you want to do more than find out what words appear where:

But for finding the appearance and frequency of words, a concordance is largely unnecessary since there are searchable texts.

In any case, please show me where you cited a Catholic source with regards to 1 Cor.
