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.
