  • Look real close

    If a priest were to be married he would obviously know the family structure much better. Why would you want a priest at the pulpit without ever once experiencing family life, Once! That cohesive bond that keeps us all with one! The serpent is among us getting ready to devour. Freewill was giving to man so commonsense would prevail which what we fall very short off these days.

  • Priests need to have the freedom to

    A priest isn’t needed to be treated differently. They should have the freedom and experience what it is like to live in an ordinary life. If priests did marry, they would have to have more jobs because they have to look after their family but they can also still carry out a role of a priest. Nothing can stop love. Priests will also have more experience that can help other problems. They’d be able to know what to do.

    Priests would probably want a time in life where they can rest and spend time with someone because nearly all their lives are devoted to God.

    Since when was ‘priests cannot marry’ a RULE...

  • Christ died to make men free

    So why does the church take away that freedom.? I know so many men who have said, "I would totally consider being a priest if only they could marry....". Marriage is a sacrament - so a priest can administer it but not
    Completely celebrate it? Any marriage has challenges, medical marriages, those in the armed forces,... Answer is simply to forbid it? And look at the tens of thousands of children who have been victimized by men who have chosen the "celibate" priesthood.....

  • Priests should be allowed to get married

    In the bible, it doesnt say they should not get married. I dont get why they cant experience the beauty of the family and not being alone. But the wife also has to aknowledge that she can't have his whole time. True love means accepting a person the way they are.

  • 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.

  • Priests need to be devoted

    If priests are married there number one priority will be their wife and family. If they are too busy worrying about there wife and family they will have no time for god, Church and others that need help. They know what they are getting into when they become a priest therefor if they really wanted to get married so bad they shouldn't have become a priest in the first place. After all is a priest not married to his church and God.

  • 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.
