    Sure. Maybe they'll leave the alter boys alone.

    Certainly. They outlawed marriage when they didn't inherit the priest's property upon death. Priest's were often wealthy a thousand years ago. Can't have some whore getting rich when the church has so many enemies to silence. Not cheap!

    And we couldn't have the children of these priests dividing up the property that the Vatican was relying on to generate income when the married priests, who owned the property, died.

    Interesting. But not what anyone asked.

    They asked....Should catholic priests be allowed to get married? They did not ask "should married people be allowed to become priests?"
