After all Revelation 22:18, 19 says -
"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll."

I think it's ridiculous to think that people cannot be committed to god and a partner. I think this is part of the reason why many people are rejecting the catholic faith. I think it's frustrating that this priest was excommunicated, yet priests and other people in the church have raped children and are shipped elsewhere, free to continue to hurt children with no punishment at all.

I personally believe the bible is nothing without prayer to guide you to the truth of scripture.
I also believe that if God has (and had) a representative on earth that his/her direct revelations would be more relevant and would trump an overedited bible.
Assuming I prayed about and received confirmation they spoke His words of course.

I don't see why God would stop sending 'prophets' to lead and guide his people, especially in these times.
The OT is mostly a collection of the words of pre-Christ prophets, their word is scripture (and contradicts), surely the words of prophets called of God since then are 'scripture' too?
Waits for the inevitable scripture that usually follows this kind of post...

No. I don't think that the catholic church should let priests marry.
If all we worry about is bringing in new members with our change in ways, where does that leave all the devout members, who were raised as catholics. Would they not feel left out, or that the 'younger generation' has tried to change what has always been. I also wonder how many established parishoners would leave the church if such fundamental rules were changed.
I am not sure what the answer is to bring in new priests and parishoners. I think the answer is multi-faceted and not simply do this or do that.
