lets see if i have this right....a priest who rapes a boy can recieve forgiveness....but a hetero male/female canNOT recieve forgiveness if they are divorced....huh???

and yeah, its not a pedophilia problem as much as it is a gay male as priest issue....practicing or not, gay males should never be ordained!

Dear Larry,

Where did you get the idea someone cannot receive forgiveness if they are divorced?

Which pope, Larry? I do not recall the current pope saying someone cannot receive forgiveness if they are divorced. Do you have a specific quote?
