Following on from Father Kevin Lees announcement that he is married do you think priests should be allowed marry?
I think they should, it is unrealistic to expect anyone to be celibate. I know Fr Kevin and have attended some of his services although I'm not a parishioner. I found him to be a lovely man, I always wished our diocese would have a priest like him! He has a lovely manner and is a compassionate caring person. He knows how to love so perhaps that's what makes him a good priest. I have a good friend who recently went into the priesthood and whilst I admire him and think he is a wonderful priest I am sad for him that he has chosen a life of celibacy.
