Insight on the Vatican

Catholic doctrine bewilders me a bit (although I have a very strong grasp of Church history), so I'm always grateful when a friend explains the matter lucidly, as the Paragraph Farmer does in this American Spectator article. Patrick takes on the challenge of responding to Andrew Sullivan's splenetic attack on the Vatican's latest pronouncement regarding homosexuals and the priesthood. He does so in just the right way -- by actually looking beyond the sensationalist headlines and examining how the pronouncement comports with long-standing Church doctrine.
