I think Catholic Priests should be allowed to get married because they have trouble staying chaste and such.
ruth421963

Con

I think in a perfect world, yes they should.
However taking on the role of a priest is NOT
to have SEX.
I agree that they have something really wrong
with the old school priests. I'm willing to say
it is still going down as we speak. I feel they
should weed through each one of them and start
over.
Hopefully with this new group they will have
corrected whatever screwy desires they had.
Thanks and bear with me, I'm learning
at 44 yrs how to debate..it has been yrs.
Peace,
Ruth

Cathalic priests take an oath to be true to God. Whitch means no sex of any kind whatsoever. May you and yours have an "Oh So Very Merry Christmas".

I am with Kels! It has nothing to do with priests not being able to get married!

I don't usually comment until the debate is over. I was curious to see how this was going to turn out.

If this debate is because of the sex scandal ... which is what I think you are saying , then this is ridiculous .. if a man is with a child , it has nothing to do with him not being able to get married .. if a priest cant have sex with a women and get married and wants to that bad , he will go be with an adult , a women ...(maybe a man if they are gay) not a child ... I am sick of people blaming it on priests not being able to get married ... this is a sex deprived man who says hey I cant have a women so I will just sleep with a child ...Unfortunately priests are human and what better place for pedophiles to have hidden out than in a church .. It has nothing to do with priests not being able to get married .. I am sick of hearing that ...
