Church Must End Celibacy for Its Priests

September 24, 2018

The problem with the Roman Catholic Church is mandatory celibacy. It is an unnatural way of life and attracts men of unnatural persuasion.

God created male and female and commanded them to “go forth and multiply.” By insisting on mandatory celibacy, the church is discouraging good family men from becoming priests. And we, the parishioners, are left with the rest.

Why do I stay? I stay because I love the church, the liturgy and the Eucharist. I pray that the church will see the error of its ways and return to the way that Jesus intended -- to the early church when celibacy was not mandatory.
