    I hope the issue for this guy goes the way of the archbishop (episcipal) of N.H. who is gay (it went away) and not way of Rev. Creech, who was a pastor in Nebraska and is straight (I believe presbyterian) who was defrocked for performing a gay marriage ceremony.

    I'm not sure this is a good thing or not?

    I myself would not receive the sacrament from a women, because the priesthood is not for women, and I'm sure many will think the priesthood is no place for a homosexual too!
