Vatican urges psych tests on future priests

VATICAN CITY – Candidates for the Catholic priesthood should undergo psychological tests to screen out heterosexuals unable to control their sexual urges and those with strong homosexual tendencies, the Vatican said Thursday.

In the face of reams of evidence that homosexuality has no relationship to child abuse, the savants in Rome insist on blaming them for everything.  If they’re not careful they’ll lose one of their major sources of priests — the good little gay Catholic boys who are looking for a safe place to hide from their “sinful” urges.

This also shows that they know little or nothing about psych testing.  No one expects the Church to make it into the 21st Century any time soon, but the 20th would be nice.

One thought on “Vatican urges psych tests on future priests

  1. There is a satisfying comfort within this delusion. One power of misused religion is the way that delusion is reinforced. The damaging ineffectiveness and damaged relations are the result of evil. Your Sagan quote sums it up well.

    While I agree generally (and you stated it well, I might add) I have to ask: if evil is the cause, whence cometh the evil? Is not the very concept, used in such a specific context but without definition, also delusion?
