Default homosexuality incompatible with priesthood

In the book/interview called Light of the World, Pope Benedict states that homosexuality is incompatible with the priesthood.

Quote:
The interviewer, German journalist Peter Seewald, asked the Pope whether the Church’s teaching that homosexuals deserve respect isn’t contradicted by its position that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.”

The Pope answered: “No. It is one thing to say that they are human beings with their problems and their joys, that as human beings they deserve respect, even though they have this inclination, and must not be discriminated against because of it.”

“At the same time, though, sexuality has an intrinsic meaning and direction, which is not homosexual,” he said. “The meaning and direction of sexuality is to bring about the union of man and woman and, in this way, to give humanity posterity, children, a future.”
