Jesus and Mary was married and had childern, so Catholic Church get with the program
Jesus and Mary was married and had childern, so maybe the descendants should run the Catholic church
it would certainly cut down on preverted behaviors

    Some Catholic priests are married, this is accepted by the Church in some Eastern "rites".
    Also, I have read that former (married) Lutheran or Anglican ministers have become Catholic priests, and are of course still married.

    Clearly this person who wrote this stuff doesn't beleave in the US Constitutional freedom of religion for Catholics or care much for the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. I warn everyone of this sad fact that can be seen on Sodahead .......anti-catholicism is on the rise here in America again espcially when Catholics runs for president--at this rate I won't be surprised if very soon anti-semitism also grows when the first Jew becomes president. This is a sad social commentary on the state of religios freedom in America..

    It can't be wrong to do whats natural. I believe that women should be able to become priest and men nuns too but Catholic church would have to do away with old habits lol

    See, here's the deal... We have the freedom to practice religion... any religion. You also have the freedom to leave that religion and go to something else. Do I necessarily agree with the Catholic Church? On some issues, on such as who can or cannot lead, no. Do they need to bend to my will??? Of course not! If enough people left the church over this issue, then maybe they would take a step back and re-assess. But that's their business and none of ours. The second we start poking our fingers around where they don't belong (unless something egregious (like molestation of children, etc.) happens), well that's a Pandora's Box that is best left closed.

    >>>Should the Catholic Church abolish celibacy for the preists and nuns?<<<

    No. And you're not Catholic anyway, Bob, so this isn't any of your business.

    >>>Should the Catholic Church make nuns the equals in every way to preists?<<<

    They already are, Bob. True, women can't become priests in the Catholic Church, but neither can most men.

    Don't forget that most forms of Protestant Christianity, not to mention Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, do not have female priests or clergy.

    Anyway, again, this is none of your business. You're not Catholic, so keep out of this. They're house rules, so have respect for them.

    up on your soap box again i see jen,spreading your acid intolerance upon all and sundry! wake up,who are you to tell people being a non catholic negates their opinion?? YOU should have some respect,easy to see your faith in an antiquated,self serving, intolerant religion does not serve you well! it is attitudes like yours that kept innocent children hidden behind the doors of the "catholic" church to be raped and sodomised.
    who cares if there is male or female priests or clergy,the catholic church and all its tyranny should be exposed and then lets start talking about what needs abolishing!! do remember---religion is man-made, not of God!

    Celibacy is not the problem, it's faith. The Catholic Church needs to get back with the traditional Latin rite and do away with the Novus Ordo rite. The more "modern" the Church gets, the more loss of faith there will be.

    No personally I do not believe that is what the Lord would want.The Bible is clear about such things a Priest is a man and the women is not looked at like that in the Bible.Even in Jesus time woman was not picked for these kind of things it was always the men.

    Unless the person is asexual, celibacy is unnatural and should never be enforced.

    Why is Jesus still pinned to the Cross and we worship Satan's handywork in Churches.... take him OFF the cross as we have also Crucified ourselves for over 2000 years, he was taken OFF the Cross by Joseph and ressurected so why do we have to sit and look at past evil handywork by previous evil contolling powers that be... The Jew's crcified themselves that is why the Jew's have a challenge to prove there worth... however to date it's a fail in my eyes.... look what they do with the worlds monetry markets, rich richer and poor poorer....

    I'm not Catholic but I have family members who are and imo, I think that this is a pretty outdated mindset. Again, I don't know much about Catholicism but from what I have heard, it's kind of ridiculous...Christian Pastors can get married! Why not Catholic priests/nuns?

    I am not Catholic, so I have no idea. If they choose to marry Christ and stay celibate then I guess that is the choice they made. I think it is quite not normal, and a bit much to require, but as I say, I am not Catholic, so I dont get it.

    Our father God gave us all a choice to choose who/what we want to do that is best for our souls. I Think that celibacy should be abolished! God never ordained for any man to be without a woman unless, he chooses too. And the woman was create to be equal with the man.The Catholic Churches should consider reading the bible again..

    The Catholic Church is free to pursue whatever course of action it deems appropriate for itself, as long as it doesn't attempt to apply its dogma onto those who don't follow its teachings.

    Well if you belong to the Eastern rite of the Catholic Church some of their Preist are married. If you are married you can become a Priest. Unfortunately in America the Bishops here won't let them marry. Again however some of those Priest who convert to Catholicism are married therefore a few are allowed to be married.
    This gets rather complicated and I for one don't really know if being married affects their effectiveness in the church or not.

    While I have to chuckle at the Catholic church's belief system when it comes to contraception and celibacy and gender equality, it's certainly not for me to decide their beliefs for them. They believe what they believe - if you don't like it you don't have to believe it or go to their church (yet?).
