Pope Benedict is likely to live-up to his pre-coronation reputation ...

... I've been reading about the likelihood that the new Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI, is to issue instructions that will have the effect of imposing [an attempt at] a bar on gay men joining the priesthood. Frankly, my reaction when I first heard about this, several days ago, was that it was a prime example of non-news; it brought to mind that old saw, when expressing mock surprise about something that is obviously no different from expected:
"Is the Pope catholic?"


Anyway, here is one of many 'news stories' about this, for those who may have had their heads in the sand, ostrich-like.
