Norm Self describes making his adult film debut at age 83 as “splendid.” The retired clergyman from North Carolina tells The Sun he feels “more vibrant” than ever, because his “erotic energy has taken over” since pivoting from a lifelong career in the church to a late career in adult entertainment two years ago.

For the record, The Vatican still doesn’t think those of us with “deep-seated homosexual tendencies” or people who “support the so-called ‘gay culture'” should be priests. A new statement reiterates the ban on gay priests that’s been in place since 2005, stating that those who “practice homosexuality” will not be welcomed into the priesthood. The document was published Thursday: The Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practice homosexuality, present...
