    The dark ages. That is also about the time when this insane rule about clerical celibacy started.

    1415 wasn’t the Dark Ages; it was barely even Middle Ages. That’s early Renaissance.

    any organization that calls itself a “church” should be true to the Biblical scriptures, written as a guide, since the days of Moses…..circa 1500 B.C.
    -
    God’s Truth and God’s standard is the same basic standard that God taught Adam, added to and finally set to writing…about 40 authors, inspired by God’s Spirit.
    God is ageless, eternal, and He said “I am God, I change not.”
    What was wrong for Adam is wrong for us….especially summarized in the so-called “10 Commandments”…
    -
    any “church” that teaches otherwise is not of God.

    @Ruff, release Dr. C and Ahab.

    For that matter, where does God forbid contraception or female priests?

    I’m guessing he’s resigning to escape the coming storm about him covering up all those pedophiles for all of those decades. Shameful.

    It should not be forgotten that as Cardinal, he ran the office more accurately known as “The Inquisition”. I agree with pirate, he’s getting out before even more “hits the fan”.

    In updating one of the Laws of Moses, would you would have your wife ride in the back seat (or trunk) of your car when you go somewhere when she is experiencing her menstrual cycle? Too many of those Laws are for a tribal, migratory society that make many of them impossible to apply to today’s world.

    If memory serves, celibacy wasn’t required until after the time of the Borgias. Something about the Papacy becoming a hereditary position. No son (officially), no getting your son the papacy.

    -
    I am not and never would be a member of the Roman Catholic Church.
    -
    God sometimes required a prophet to be celibate, but not often. In Judaism, if a man or woman felt that God wanted them to give up “normal” life and serve Him fultime, that was allowed.
    -
    God expects obedience to basic Law summarized in the Commandments given to Moses…that would include married couples being faithful to spouses as they are faithful to God.
    -
    The New Testament Church was given rules by Jesus, and the Apostle Paul wrote many of them, such as not allowing women to teach men in the worship services. That is a good rule to follow until Jesus comes for His Church (1 Thessalonians 4: 14-17).
    -
    God also gave orders to Christian men to love their wives as much as they loved themselves….and to treat wives and children with love, not treat them as second-class humans or chattel. Jesus said that all believers are equal in the sight of God…..but in certain situations there should be positions of authority…the husband/father is representing God the Father to the wife and children; the man is the “head of the house” in marriage. If all husbands and wives obeyed the scripture guide, there would be almost no divorce and less poverty caused by single mothers trying to raise children without the support of the fathers.

    Those teachings say I can have slaves, sell my daughter into sexual slavery, and kill anyone who works on the Sabbath or wears clothes of mixed fabrics. Nice rules. Have you actually READ the Old Testament?! Sheesh!
