*sigh*

There's nothing to think about it. The Church allows THOSE ALREADY MARRIED Anglican/Episcopalian priests to convert. You may not marry once you are a Catholic priest. KWIM?

I heard this on the news earier and was going make a post about it asking Catholics what they thought..



I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Quoting AutymsMommy:

Priests may not marry; already married Anglican priests can convert... already married.

About damn time, maybe now these horny bastards will stop molesting children if they can actually have a life outside of religion.

 *sigh* As far as I remember from religion classes nun's and priest are married to god and not supposed to be married to a person, even ones who convert

This just reminds me that my Scottish ancestors had the last name MacTaggart which means 'son of the priest' lol.

Yes because I totally said other wise too, genius Sarah!. I should be shocked you actually just threw a tantrum, but half the idiots on this board always get a fire under their ass and make assumptions based on one reply ;) YAY Genius all around!!

Quoting SRUsarahSC:

yeah, because that works for all the married child molesters out there, they have a wife, so that means they stop touching kids! Genius Hezzy!

w the rate of ppl entering the priesthood declining over the last few decades...it really isn't all that surprising.

the argument that not allowing ppl to marry has caused priests to molest children is just asinine though.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
