Vatican Plan to Block Gay Priests

In some ways a non-story because there is really nothing new in this story--just speculation. Also the pope never signs these type of documents (something alluded to in the story)

From The Observer:

The controversial document, produced by the Congregation for Catholic Education and Seminaries, the body overseeing the church's training of the priesthood, is being scrutinised by Benedict XVI.

It been suggested Rome would publish the instruction earlier this month, but it dropped the plan out of concern that such a move might tarnish his visit to his home city of Cologne last week.
