Vatican Will Release Document on Homesexuals and the Priesthood in 2005

From CNS STORY: Vatican firms up plans for U.S. seminary visitation in 2005:

"Sometime before the process begins next fall, the Vatican expects to publish a long-awaited and potentially controversial document on whether candidates with homosexual inclinations should be admitted to the priesthood.

The document on homosexuality has been in the works for more than five years. An early draft of the document took the position that homosexuals should not be admitted to the priesthood; in its current form, the document takes a more nuanced approach to the whole issue, sources said."
