When Two Gay Catholic Tribes Go To (Cold) War

. . .the first tribe is the Progressives — some sexually active, others not — who believe homosexuality should be normalized by the Catholic Church, and are pushing openly for the Church to change its teachings to reflect that. . .

. . .the second tribe are Conservatives who live a double life.  Outwardly they advocate for traditional Catholic teaching on homosexuality, but they also live homosocially (in the sense of socializing with other gay conservative priests), and some have gay sex.  They, therefore, live in a state of cognitive dissonance. . .
