Church: Gay priests should leave

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION - Com­piled from wire re­ports

ROME — The Catholic Church in Italy lashed out at gay priests, urg­ing them to come out of the closet and leave the pri­est­hood. The Dio­cese of Rome de­nounced priests who were lead­ing a “dou­ble life,” said they shouldn’t have been or­dained and it promised the church would rig­or­ously pur­sue any­one be­hav­ing in a way that wasn’t dig­ni­fied for a priest. The state­ment fol­lowed a newsweekly’s ex­posé on gay clergy in Rome.
