Paderborn Archdiocese Accepts Seminarians with Homosexual Orientation

From Kirche und Leben:

The Catholic Archdiocese of Paderborn in Germany will expressly accept homosexual candidates for ordination, according to seminary rector Michael Menke-Peitzmeyer, provided that they observe celibacy. “We must distinguish between a homosexual orientation of a person and homosexual practice,” he said. This applies to all sexual orientations. Homosexual practice would be a reason for exclusion, according to Menke-Peitzmeyer.
