Should Catholic Priest Celibacy Be Done Away With? [POLL] [VIDEO]
Now here’s a subject that’s been on the table within the Catholic faith for many years, with proponents for and against. Should the celibacy requirement remain for those who join the priesthood?
I was raised Catholic. I was an alter boy in the early seventies. And at one time in my young life I thought about the priesthood as a vocation. Now looking back, there’s no way I could have followed through with the celibacy requirement. C’mon, I’m human, God made sure of that, and I’ve got needs!
The controversy rankles the neck hairs of some. And now that the Vatican is saying goodbye to Pope Benedict, and rumors have it that the Conclave may choose a younger pope with more contemporary ideas, there’s a chance the celibacy requirement may be history.
What say you?
