The priesthood was a great place to hang out if you weren't interested in being married - life if your sexual predilections were other than straight heterosexual marriage oriented. If you were gay you could be a priest and hopefully there would be other gay priests to be friends with and no one would question plus you get all the recognition and accolades that go along with being a priest. No one would question why you weren't married?


When I lived in Cleveland, there was this one gay priest from a very prominent local church who was notorious for hanging out in parks and picking up guys for sex. I don't know if any of his parishioners knew about it, but the entire gay male community sure did.
