My life as a gay priest
A former priest in the Boston Archdiocese speaks out about secrecy, scandal, and being gay in the church.
The clergy's buried truths
The predominance of male teenage victims raises anew a thorny issue -- the presence of significant numbers of homosexually oriented men in the priesthood.

As the clergy abuse scandal has grown, the topic of gay priests, gay men, and lesbians in the life of the Catholic Church is suddenly front and center.
For church, a false issue
It is not the existence of gay priests but the reticence of Catholicism to address sexuality that has led the church into its current crisis.

Affirming gay and lesbian priests
We recognize that faith communities have the right to ordain whomever they choose, but we reject the exclusion of any person from holy orders on the basis of sexual orientation.
