NEW YORK — A Vatican evaluation of U.S. Roman Catholic seminaries in response to the clergy sex abuse scandal concluded that administrators have largely been effective in rooting out homosexual behavior in the schools, although the agency said it persists.

The Congregation for Catholic Education sought a broad review of how the schools screen and educate prospective priests, but gave special attention to teachings on chastity and celibacy. The Vatican also directed evaluators to look for "evidence of homosexuality'' in the schools.

Homosexual behaviour is not the problem but pedophilia is

And here I've been advising young homosexuals that Catholic seminaries were a good place to hook up.......

Go ahead, get your salvos in. The Catholic Church can take it. Just as Jesus Christ promised, His Church remains here today, almost 2000 years later, for me to attend. Man, Jesus is cool.

And exactly, how would the Roman Catholic church know if its been effective in rooting out homosexual behavior in schools? I suspect the recruitment of new priests must be lower than ever.

what a crock of crap, how would the vatican know diddly squat about this? Or maybe 80% all the priests have left for a normal life, gay or straight.
the catholic church is the worlds biggest ostrich!
