Because homosexual acts are sinful.
I have to admit that I do feel sorry for all my friends who had such high hopes, but I would say "What did they expect?"
This is a doctrinal issue at the core of Roman Catholic theology.
Furthermore, do not expect "married priests" or "female priests" any time soon. Because you must remember that outside of the holy sacrament of marriage, sexual acts are all sinful. And, of course, since "God" chose to incarnate as male............................. need I go on??
Read my dissertation. It is a problem within Christian sexual morality that is not Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Baptist, etc., etc., etc. (For a Protestant discussion of this issue see Fred Clark's blog The Slacktivist: Here’s that ‘Anything Goes’ rant about evangelical sexual ethics
Oh well, it's not that I like being right about these issues - but at least, I don't get surprised or disappointed.

Michael speaks with Sarah Weinman, the author of 'The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel That Scandalized the World'.
