Follow-up to yesterdays rant

Ok folks..I swear I am not on an anti-Cath0lic rant this week, this stuff just keeps popping up in front of me. Apparently this priest is a celebrity of sorts, is published, has a radio show, has millions of followers, even some that call him a saint, etc. So I have two questions for you to think about. Firstly why do priests have to take a vow of celibacy? What archaic thinking is it that thinks the only way they can serve their faith is to NOT do what God supposedly put us here to do? He was with a woman. Isn't this was the church has been preaching (pun intended) all along? With all the pedophile scandals and closeted priests, I would think the church would be doing a little twirly dance that this one was with a woman...I think scandal is a ridiculous word to use for this. My second question is...if you were this priest that is called the "0prah" of priesthood, would you go to a beach just a few miles from where your LARGE fan base is located? What was this dude thinking? Ok, here is my prediction.......he will leave the priesthood but will continue his good work. In my opinion, nobody loses. This is a direct request to P0pe Benedict X.V.I.: Dear Pope, you have the ability to shift the winds of thought in your church. Please consider allowing priests to marry and have families. I think G0d would kinda like that. Thanks, and have a great day.

I was raised Catholic, my son goes to a Catholic school, but I'm afraid I'm so with you. God created man to have sex and it's unnatural, un-Godly, to not follow God's will. Many of the Catholic rules were based on greedy, human, self serving purposes and I believe if the church doesn't evolve, like all things, it will become extinct.
Wow. Glad I got that off my chest!

Laughing at the above commenters profile pic!

I was raised strict Catholic ... the Catholic priest at my cousins church would go over to their house for dinner, and rape my cousins after dessert. While my uncle was pouring wine and my auntie was washing up.

Niiiiiiice.

I actually nearly got my sons baptised recently, I just wanted them to "belong" to a church that they could visit anytime they wanted too. The reason I didn't - was the Popes recent comments about washing machines liberating women. Straw, camels back, etc.

Come ON man, get out of the dark ages!!!!

I completely agree with you and I have no Catholic associations to speak of!
