Swinging Dead Cats and Hitting Homosexuals

Is it me, or hasn't the Catholic Church been a safe haven for gays and lesbians since the dawn of celibacy as a policy? These folks might as well look under their own robes for you can't swing a dead cat near a church without hitting at least one homosexual. The only point to this "inspection" is to prove their bigotry:
Investigators appointed by the Vatican have been instructed to review each of the 229 Roman Catholic seminaries in the United States for "evidence of homosexuality" and for faculty members who dissent from church teaching, according to a document prepared to guide the process.

The Vatican document, given to the New York Times on Wednesday by a priest who was granted anonymity because he feared retribution, surfaces as Catholics await a Vatican ruling on whether homosexuals should be barred from the priesthood...

...It is unknown how many Catholic priests are gay. Estimates range from as low as 10 percent to as high as 60.
To what end? So, if they find that the number is greater than 60% what will they do to the few pipelines for new priests as the old ones pass on to the great beyond?
