Vatican's solution for curbing priest sex scandals: screening for ... gayness

You read that right. The Holy See's new brilliant idea to try and stop their dear priests from molesting little boys left right and center is to test them to see if they're gay.

... What?

Melbourne's Catholic Church has embraced a Vatican suggestion to test potential priests for sexual orientation. Those who "appear" gay will be banned.

The head of the Vatican committee that made the recommendations has made it clear celibate gays should also be banned because homosexuality is ''a type of deviation''.

Ah, always so proud of flaunting their laughable ignorance of basic human psychology, the Vatican is. No, it's not gayness or any deviation at all that leads to priests molesting boys. It's trying to reduce or ignore your biological sexual impulses for your entire life until they grow too strong and overwhelm your inhibitions.

I'd be tempted to accuse them of just finding yet another way to discriminate against gays, but that would be forgetting two things: 1) gays wouldn't want to be priests anyways, considering how lovely they're treated by Christianity, and 2) I do believe these poor fools actually do believe in gayness being a cause and that they're doing the right thing. Depressing.
