Cardinal Raymond Burke, long known for his strongly negative views on LGBT issues, particularly marriage equality, recently blamed the priest vocation shortage on a “feminized” Church. Noting, in particular, the introduction of girls as altar servers, he said this development is deterring boys from church involvement. Burke stated:
“Young boys don’t want to do things with girls. It’s just natural.”
With all due respect to Cardinal Burke, Catholic LGBT advocates have been saying exactly that for a long time. At least for about 10% of boys.
