I always thought priests weren't supposed to have sex...if that's so...my whole family line shouldn't exist lmao.

Quoting Hezzy1228:

That could be used in so many ways lol.

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

not if you are married--they don't take them.  No BC besides natural family planning however.

Quoting Jessica_Esqueda:

What about the vow of celibacy? I wonder if that applies?

This is one case and he's already married. If it makes the national news I'll take more notice. In general you could have been married before and be a priest or nun, but even this seems unusual. Have to wait and see more as the story didn't elaborating much.

Omg not all catholic priests are pedophiles. Stop saying that stupid shit.

Quoting Hezzy1228:

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

Pedophiles will always be pedophiles.

People don't rape children because they don't have a sex life, they do it because they are sick in the head. Whether it be a priest, cop, teacher or just the neighbor next door.
being sexually deprived does NOT make you a child predator. Just sayin.

as a priest (or a nun) you are to be totally devoted to God, so the consensus was you could not provide a spouse your full attention. Being a priest is a 24/7, low paying job, not ideal for having a family.  Most priests, when asked if they would marry if they were permitted, say no.

Being Catholic, Im up to date on most of the rules. Did not know maried converts could enter the Priesthood though!
