If two gay people have sex, their child will most likely be gay? I'll make a note. The scientific knowledge of some clergy astounds me.
No, he thinks anal sex = gay sex, and thus enjoying anal sex means you're gay, so if a woman enjoys having anal sex with her husband, and eventually has kids, she'll pass that enjoyment to her kids, meaning they'll be gay, too.
Read up on early to medieval christian church history, and you'll find that priests had to walk a tightrope when preaching about appropriate marital sex and asking questions during confession. They had to teach their flock the church's precept that marital sex was meant to be strictly reproductive, man-on-top-get-it-over-with-quick; thus, anything else was sinful. This was complicated by the fact that the church knew full well that some people employed alternate forms of sex to avoid pregnancy. So in order to make that point they had to talk about other forms of sex, and they had to find a way to do so without going into too much detail that could pique people's curiosity and give them the idea to try something they hadn't thought to do before.
