Fr James Martin Looking Confused (Pic Credit: Fr Dwight Longenecker)

Celibacy? Gay? Fr. James Martin? Whazzat?

. . .just what exactly does this “good celibate gay priest” look like?  Undoubtedly there are a good number of Catholic priests who experience same-sex attraction.  I believe many of them are holy, hard-working well-adjusted men.  Their sexuality has been accepted & integrated & by God’s grace they have mastered their lusts & sublimated their sexuality into their priestly vocation.  However, they do not describe themselves as “gay”. . .
