Bishop candidate opposes gay priests
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.
