Rod Dreher reports in Andrew Sullivan’s Gay Problem-And mine. that their could be an enormous, public, internecine struggle within the Catholic Church in the neart future:
I draw those dire conclusions not on “hearsay,” as Sullivan says, but on reporting and years of conversations with priests, who have told me more than I wish I knew about what it was really like in their seminaries. It will be interesting to see how Sullivan will react to author Michael S. Rose’s forthcoming Goodbye! Good Men, which is the first book I’m aware of to systematically compile these stories from the seminaries, and to name names.
I’ve just finished an early copy, and what it documents is absolutely astonishing, and cannot be ignored except by those who do not want to see. This bombshell book reveals a seminary underworld in which homosexual promiscuity and sexual harassment is rampant, in which straight men are marginalized and demoralized, and seminarians who support the Church’s teaching on sexuality and the priesthood are persecuted, even to the point of being sent off, Soviet-style for psychological evaluations. Many of these guys are rejected from entering the seminaries, expelled, or driven by depression to leave.
This will get uglier.
