I've already said several times in this thread that they can - technically - but that they bring great scandal among the Faithful when it comes to confidence in the Sacramental economy.  Be careful of purely technical definitions unconnected to real, concrete circumstances.
You seem to contradict yourself.  You say a homosexual cannot be a Christian, and a non-Christian cannot be a priest.  Now you say they can confect valid Sacraments.  Don't you see the folly of your words?

Already addressed in previous replies.  Sacraments are valid ex opere operato.  Not dependent on the worthiness of the minister.  Those who cause scandal among the Faithful by presenting themselves unworthily for orders and they that ordain them commit mortal sin (Aquinas).  Scandal is a grave sin of such enormous proportions, Our Blessed Lord said they who cause His little ones to stumble would be better off at the bottom of the sea with a large millstone tied around their neck.  I take that very seriously.
