According to a a short article from Catholic World News, the Irish primate, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin, has come out contradicting the Holy Father's order to ban gays from the Roman Catholic clergy. The report on the Archbishop's remarks, which were made on November 24th, was originally reported on by the Irish Times. The Irish Times reported that the Archibishop told another newspaper that, "You don't write off a candidate for the priesthood simply because he is a gay man." Thanks, Archbishop, for standing up for what is right.
