Vatican Bans Gay Seminarians

The Vatican is going ahead with their ban on gays entering the priesthood.

Homosexuals, even those who are celibate, will be barred from becoming
Roman Catholic priests, a church official said Wednesday, under stricter
rules soon to be released on one of the most sensitive issues facing the

They're gonna start sniffing around seminaries looking for "evidence of homosexuality and whether seminarians are being properly prepared to live celibately."

I wonder what kind of evidence they'll be looking for? Pink or rainbow colored vestures? A certain gay-ish swagger as they walk down the aisle? Seminarians hugging one another, or hugging other penis-wielding members in their parishes.

And exactly how to you prepare a seminarian for a life of celibacy? Is there a Masturbation 101 class? Bring your own astro-glide and tissues, boys! Will the advanced class include detailed instructions on how to stimulate your prostate all by your lonesome, or do they just find that stuff on the internets? Will there be a practicum or internship in the discipline?

So many questions. So few answers.
