  • Yes, Of Course

    Where in the bible does it say that priest's shouldn't marry? The bible states that we shouldn't add anything to or take away anything from God's commands. The Catholic Church is guilty of this as it makes up many rules and regulations that are not based in scripture. A wife would be a great source of strength to the priest and a blessing to the Church. Please Pope Francis make the change now, why wait?

  • Of Course They Should

    Where in the bible does it say that priest's should not marry? The bible states that we should not add anything to or take away anything from God's commands. The Catholic Church is guilty of this as it makes up far too many rules and regulations that are not based on scripture. This is just one example of this. A wife would be a great source of help and strength to the priest and a blessing to the Church. Please Pope Francis make the change now, why delay any longer?

  • They can support more....

    The priest should be able to get married because they will be able to understand a families needs and connect more with the clergy. And also, I is after all one of the seven sacraments, and if priest are holy then they should be able to consist of all of the sacraments.

  • They should be allowed to marry

    No mater who someone is and what they believe in, we should all have freedom in love. If a priest decides to marry another they should be allowed after all it is there life, who are we to say who and what they should love. Our world should be a loving and caring area where we do not enforce other beliefs onto other people.

  • Because of love, priests also have the rights to own their beloved women.

    Just so you know, breaking up because of men's vocation to priesthood is painful. Because you both love each other, but you have to let go. Yes, Jesus is a bachelor, but he teaches us to love. When he came to teach his children, he didn't tell us that those who will follow him should be a bachelor too. If so, then why is it that only priests are not allowed to get married?

  • We are all the same

    Priest ore common, some feelings are same for everybody. Let the freedom of love and feelings also enrich the lives of the catholic priests. Freedom does not mean irresponsibility, on the contrary, it means caring for those you love, and those who are in distress, in need of spiritual help.

  • They need to remain focused

    But I want you to be free from concern. One who is unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, and his interests are divided. (1 Corinthians 7:32-34)

  • If priests were allowed to marry, those who don't would be suspected

    Why would a man not marry if he could? He would be suspected of having some "special" condition of which maybe he would not be willing to talk openly. Sexual impotence, homosexuality, fear of women, inability to commit to some real person, etc. Of course he could swear that it was his celibate vocation that made him choose that station, but anyway he would be suspect.

  • It's not fair

    Priests are devoted to their job. They visit schools and they visit the elderly. If they were married they would not be able to visit them as much because their wife and children would want their time. And Vice versa if you are married you wont have as much time as you would like to have with your wife and children. They are allowed to marry as long as their children are grown up when they become a priest.

  • No they shouldn't

    1) if you personally know a priest they don't have a desire to be married to a woman, that's by choice . 2) it makes no sense the argument of molestation is because there not married3) the inspiration they get of not being married to a woman is from Jesus Christ .4) how does a married priest make you a better catholic,? 5) Those " old laws" has kept this church , priest , parishioners, strong for thousands of years.

  • They need to focus

    If a priest is unmarried, he needs not worry about pleasing his wife, he can focus on the work of god and be anxious about how to please The Lord. As said in St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 7, line 32-34, read it for yourself and see

  • Priests already have vowed chastity

    Once a priest vowed chastity he can never have sex with others. And besides Jesus once said "And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more, and will inherit eternal life." Which means, if you want to teach the word of GOD, you must leave what you have except GOD.

  • Priests Need to Take the Job Seriously

    This isn't a question of what priests are "allowed" to do. Men aren't just born as priests so they don't get rights to do whatever they want with their lives. Priesthood is a vocation, meaning it's God's choice for what you should do with your life. Men who are called to be priests aren't meant to be married, if they were they would not be priests! If you decide to be a priest it shouldn't be just a job, it should be your whole lifestyle to serve God in this special way. If you really want to have a wife and kids, GUESS WHAT? Don't be a priest. Being a priest doesn't make you look better in God's eyes if that's what you're worried about. I think God just wants you to be good at what you do and enjoy it. Sorry if I'm ignorant, but this is what I believe.

  • Priests are already married.

    Catholic priests are married to the church. The church is their bride. Whoever is called to become a priest knows the vocation which they are called to do. There are no outdated laws of the church. Are the commandments outdated? They were given by God before the time of Jesus, yet we still abide by them. Therefore, by becoming a priest you are obligated to the church, because that is your vocation.

  • They can support more....

    The priest should be able to get married because they will be able to understand a families needs and connect more with the clergy. And also, I is after all one of the seven sacraments, and if priest are holy then they should be able to consist of all of the sacraments.

  • Priest are not allowed to get married

    The ministerial Priesthood as it is now shows forth the seriousness of the Call of Christ to repentance and salvation. If priests were allowed to marry, it would look ordinary and their families will definitely affect their ministry. They are already married to the church and they must give their full work and spirit to serving Christ. They must be ready to go wherever Jesus calls them and be prepared to give up themselves for Christ, If a priest was called to minister in dangerous places he would not want to take his wife with him as they would be endanger and it would affect his ministry. In addition, Priests are devoted to their job. They visit schools and they visit the elderly. If they were married they would not be able to visit them as much because their wife and children would want their time and vice versa, if you are married you wont have as much time as you would like to have with your wife and children.
