Pray for our Gay Brothers and Sisters in the Roman Church: Catholic Bishops Continue Schizophrenic Policies Towards Faithful Gays
The report, "Ministry to Persons with a Homosexual Inclination: Guidelines for Pastoral Care," reaffirms chastity for those with "homosexual inclinations," counsels gays and lesbians not to adopt children, and recommends that gays and lesbians not make their orientations public. Those doing so, the report urges, should have their participation in parish leadership severely curtailed.
The guidelines have not yet been published on the Web. The Boston Globe reported on them last week; The New York Times reports on them for Sunday.
