The Vatican has come under fire after dismissing a high-ranking Polish priest on the same day he revealed that he was gay.Father Krzystof Charamsa, who held a post in the Vaticanâ€™s branch for protecting Catholic dogma, urged the Catholic church to change its â€˜backwardsâ€™ attitude to homosexuality.
â€˜Itâ€™s time for the Church to open its eyes about gay Catholics and to understand that the solution it proposes to them â€“ total abstinence from a life of love â€“ is inhuman,â€™ he told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, saying he wanted to challenge the Churchâ€™s â€˜paranoiaâ€™.
â€˜I know that I will have to give up my ministry which is my whole life.
â€˜I know that the Church will see me as someone who did not know how to fulfil his duty [to remain chaste], who is lost and who is not even with a woman but with a man!â€™
