    Yes, I am a Catholic who thinks they should be allowed to marry, as I just don't think it's realistic for anyone to remain celibate. It's certainly not an easy vocation if they do, hence the type of thing which has happened to Father Kevin. I feel for him, I really do, especially now that he'll become the media's fodder.

    They are 'married' to God as far as commitment goes.

    My experience with Father Kevin is that he's quite a judgmental man & I find it rather interesting that he's passed judgement on many yet been secretive himself!!!

    Obviously I'm not religious but my opinion is that being married doesn't mean you love god less. Anglican, uniting and baptist ministers/pastors can marry and they still successfully are able to minister.

    It's really based around the fact jesus was (supposedly) celibate.... which I strongly question. Of course we will never know but it wouldn't surprise me one bit to find out he was infact married or at least in love with Mary Magdalene... but that's another thread

    Sorry, my right eye id not working and affectin hand-eye co-ordination, so trying to keep it simple on the phone.

    Priests in other churches do not have to take a vow of cellibacy or be 'married' to God, so if they are Christian, but not will:ing to take that vow, perjaps Catholicism is not for them. Sorry I cannot be more helpful, having a computer would be great.

    Catholic preists, nuns and munks all take a vow of celibacy when they enterr the church in order to demonstrate their faith and commitment to the god, so to break the vow would be frowned upon, and it is very much frowned upon. I know a girl who is married to an ex-catholic preist the years later they still receive a lot of disapproving looks and comments.
