Pope Francis open to allowing married priests in Catholic Church
This move on the pope’s part has to be a sign of desperation trying to keep the failing Catholic religion afloat.
On the other side of the coin; if Pope Francis thinks that by allowing priests to get married it will curb the pedophile problem plaguing the religion, he is wrong.
We thought the catholic church was crying poverty before they allowed the priest to get married, can we even imagine what a can of holy worms this is going to open?
They have always had a crying towel out about not enough money being donated to the church. Now with these holy studs knocking out 3 or 4 kids the parish is going to have to support and has a wife with an out of control shopping habits; Forget about it. How about a four car family as the kids grow up?? The isles in the church will look like raging rivers with all the tears the priests will be shedding. Keep the $$$$oldi coming in folks.
And what about divorce, will that be permitted as well?
The Right Handers’ have to get used to the fact time is not on their side. Just like pay phones and fax machines that bit the dust, this modern world is being gobbled up by advancements and changes in the way we view things. It will not be too far down the Holy Road when the Catholic Church will probably disappear.
I can fault ALL of the Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and the rest of the Holy men for covering up the pedophile disaster that they ignored for years. It cost the church billions of dollars.
If they would have nipped these sickos in the bud or in their britches instead of protecting them, they would have come out of this a lot cleaner.
The cover-up, in my opinion, was more devastating than the original act. If they would have addressed the problem right from the start, it would have saved them billions in hush money and settlements and most importantly, it would have prevented these sick bastards from molesting a slew of other kids.
One particular sick son-of-a-bitch that called himself a priest sticks in my mind. Not only because he was an absolute, unrepenting degenerate but what the church’s lack of disciplinary actions.
Instead of being disciplined, Father Murphy was quietly moved by Archbishop William E. Cousins of Milwaukee to the Diocese of Superior in northern Wisconsin in 1974, where he spent his last 24 years working freely with children in parishes, schools and, as one lawsuit charges, a juvenile detention center. He died in 1998, still a priest.
Allowing priest to get married is a very bad decision on Pope Francis’s part. I call it throwing good money after bad.
Is there a salvation for the church? I really don’t think so.
Beside the fact of mismanagement or cover-ups in the church, more and more people are getting away from religion, especially the ever so rigid Catholics.
