"St. Sebastian's Angels"?

I was on another catholic site when I saw a post that referenced a priest caught up in this so I went to an RCF site (Roman Catholic Faithful) and I was shocked by what I saw and read. I knew there were gay priests and for the most part I'm even ok with that but this was just so, so over-the-top, so *not* what God intended from His priests. So revolting and vile, such a mockery of their sacred calling. It just leaves me so sad. :(

.No, never heard of such a thought or belief in our Faith! Are you sure it was Roman Catholic not another affiliation with the Catholic Faith?! Is St Sebastian the name of the Church??!!....

Wow..a Bit Confused about that thought

Thankfully, it sounds like it was just about 50 priests. It is shocking that a bishop was involved. I don't get how someone can rise to that level without people at least questioning his prudence -- it had to show in other areas as well.

As usual, the whole thing is magnified because the Church dragged its feet on calling these guys on the carpet, as well as making them shut the site down.

Do you know how St. Seb became the unofficials saint of homosexuals? Just curious.
