Bishop candidate opposes gay priests

The editor of the Norwegian missionary magazine Utsyn, Espen Ottesen, believes Ole Christian Kvarme will remove all gay priests in Oslo if he is made bishop.

Ottensen fully supports Kvarmes candidacy for bishop of Oslo, and he expects that Kvarme will remove the homosexual priests in the diocese.

«We assume that it is natural that Kvarme will work towards not having homosexual priests in his diocese,» Ottesen said to the national television channel NRK.

When Jens Torstein Olsen was hired on as priest in Majorstua church in Oslo in 2000, Kvarme and four other bishops stated in writing that such appointments should not be acknowledged. According to NRK, Oslo currently has five or six priests living in a homosexual relationship.
