Cardinal Keith O’Brien: ‘Allow Priests to Marry’

Cardinal Keith O’Brien said it was clear many priests struggled to cope with celibacy, and should be able to marry and have children.

    Is there a movement, or petition, generated by VOTF to immediately ensure action at the upcoming Papal election to include women, both as voters representative of their countries, and as nominees to be the next Pope? This may sound a bit extreme (a bit?) but global loss of confidence in the ruling elite of the Church, and ever-worsening revelations about past and present abuses, offer us the perfect opportunity to set in motion a true reform from within.

    I nominate Joan Chittister, OSB (without having asked her permission)

    YEAH! NO ONE SHOULD HAVE CELIBACY FORCED ON THEM. SEXUALITY IS A GIFT FROM OUR GOD AND A VERY NATURAL PART OF US.

    So they don’t’ allow gays to marry, they don’t accept divorce and abortion among many other things, and now they want the freedom to marry. One word: hypocrisy.

    I’ll tell you,…… these priests or whom ever is speaking as authority for the Roman Catholic Chiurch, make me sick to my stomach
    .
    It’s as though the people are deaf, blind and dumb imbiciles. to what is going on in the world today with this Institution. . ”
    THEY ARE NOT….. UNLESS THEY ” BUY” THEIR (THE RCC’S) GARBAGE.!”……Then they are all these and more! It is a fatal flaw for them , if they stay /as when it’s their time to go to the Lord and they reach the Heavenly Gates, they will NOT BE WELCOMED IN……..HE WILL SAY ” I NEVER KNEW YOU!”
    Take a Stand for God Almighty and His son Jesus Christ and the Comforter “the HOLY SPIRIT!” who lives within you! “They will never leave you or forsake you!” The RCC is a “man made church”…They make the rules and regulations NOT GOD!
