The emphasis here is misplaced. Clergy is the operative word. Not black

What great work of art argues for homosexual marriage?

There's no To Kill A Mockingbird.

There is no homosexual leader--how bizarre they can't find a single one.

The lawyers are heterosexual.

The fact that you believe there has to be a single leader just shows how submissive you are, have you been beaten down that much by religion?

Your ignorance is more colossal even than the bigotry manifested in your comment. Here is a beautiful section of poetry straight from the Bible, inspired by a lifelong intimate relationship between two men (2 Sam. 1:17 - 27 ASV):

And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and Jonathan his son,
and he said it should be taught to the people of Judah; behold, it is written in the Book of Jashar. He said:
Thy glory, O Israel, is slain upon thy high places! How are the mighty fallen!
Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Ashkelon; lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised exult.
Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rain upon you, nor upsurging of the deep! For there the shield of the mighty was defiled, the shield of Saul, not anointed with oil.
From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.
Saul and Jonathan, beloved and lovely! In life and in death they were not divided; they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you daintily in scarlet, who put ornaments of gold upon your apparel.
How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! Jonathan lies slain upon thy high places.
I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me; your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!

Homosexual leaders, warriors, and artists?
How about Harmodius and Aristogiton, Epaminondas, Alexander the Great, Emperor Hadrian, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti ...(to name just a few).

Yes, many lawyers have claimed to be heterosexual, such as the lawyer who founded christianity, Saul of Tarsus, but curious that he never married and led a young lad around with him as his 'travelling companion'. Gee, maybe he was the first in a long line of hypocritical christian bigots who were so deep in the closet that they couldn't even see straight (pun intended).

Agreed.
Why not?

It shouldn't be 'condoned' because you're frail?
Or should it not be condoned because you're a Priest who follows every letter of the law?

Is your comment religious based or 'Oh my gosh, gays make me nervous' based?

Only if you follow the law of the bible 100%...do you have something to stand on here...
