Very sad.

My nephew is being ordained this summer, and yes, it is a huge deal. The last family member to become a priest is now in his 80s.

I hope he will free to leave, though, if he ever decides it is no longer for him.

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

It's very simple in my opinion.Allow priests to marry.All these "housekeepers" living with priests down through the years probably did more good for the church than all the prayers in the world.

God is real. God is tugging at your soul calling to you to make a decision .Jesus Christ, Son of God is real! DIed for
your sins! Died on a cross! Rose from the Dead 3 days later! And now sits on the right side of God in Heaven! You, must
believe this to be saved! Jesus died for your sins! YOu must confess your belief that Jesus died and paid for your sins!
Jesus is the Lord the son of the living God! Its that simple to spend forever in Heaven! Its your choice! Call on the name of the
Lord and be saved!
I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. My Lord and Savior.

They will get jobs where they have access to children. In the uk now though, we have struct rules in force to protect children.Everyone who works with children in anyway has to be police checked.
The RC's acted appallingly with child abuse situations. Many of their priests went into those jobs to get access to children I am sure.

Re: Does your spouse make you feel like God is real?

This is my take on non-theist vs theist...I've met those who are wonderful on both sides of the aisle and those I want nothing to do with.... what people profess means little to me, it's how they live and treat others, especially those more vulnerable, "the least of these"... as the Bible could call them....
