Why should he discuss something he miserably failed at following. I am not judging him for doing what he did, The catholics are better off without him. What I am saying, an expert in the matter, Is He? I do not think so, So Padre mind your biz and go on.

This is like asking a vegetarian to discuss the tremendous attributes of Burger King's double whopper.

I guess they weren't looking for real insight into priestly celibacy.

Fr. Cutie has lost his vocation AND his sense of shame. What is this man thinking and trying to do, exactly? He desires a friendly audience to pour misguided admiration onto whatever guilt he is able to muster up.

Fr. Cutie...this is an attack on the Priesthood and on faithful priests. STOP IT for the good of your soul and for the good of others.

Except for when the Church bars them from active priesthood, directs them to a life of penance and prayer, reports them to the authorities, spends 100s of millions to develop and implement a prevention and detection program.

God Bless Fr. Cuties and his family. The Episcopalians are fortunate to have them.

I'm not sure why you'd think that, given Cutie's deception of his former Church.

Meybe he'll decide that his Episcopal vows weren't anything he needs to adhere to and he'll bail on them as well.

Because he was honest about his feelings and left a church that would never accommodate them. People change and should be free to make changes that reflect their new reality, vows or no vows-life is not static. I am sure that the TEC is flexible enough to adjust to Fr. Cutie's needs if another need for change arises. Catholics are just crying sour grapes. He left you behind so best to let it go. Again, I am happy for him and his family and thank the TEC for welcoming him.

He wasn't "honest about his feelings". He got caught running around with his girlfriend having taken a vow of celibacy.

Now, he's married to the woman. Should he find himself in yet another "new reality",say with another woman, he should pursue it/her freely, "vows or no vows", yes?

Correction:he WAS honest about his feelings people change. He obviously was no longer the same man that took those vows; life is not static. If he decides to divorce well that's his business, not mine and certainly not yours.

I did read his book "Dilemma". He came from a very strong Catholic family and he entered the seminary at 18 yrs.old. That is young. True when he fell in love he should have left the priesthood and then marry the woman he loves. I don't know if he was waiting for the Catholic Church to change it's rules on married priest but the decision for him to leave was made for him when the scandal broke out.
He knows many priests who are breaking all kind of rules and yet he never mentioned names.
Many Catholic people still carry a grudge against this man and they should really stop because he has been forgiven years ago.

He didn't step forward to his bishop and resign.

I don't care what he does-I'm just curious how you would opine that TEC is "lucky" to have him.

Yeah. He was probably holding out until the Church changed it's mind on married priests. I'm sure that's why he didn't just come forward to his bishop and resign.

Again, this guy obviously is wired to do what he wants, vow or no vow. Why is he some sort of hero to anyone?

Apparently it's not very honest, either.

Hi, Ken.

You affirmed "Patricia"'s comment that TEC is "fortunate" to have Cutie.

You also are, I believe, a priest in TEC.

Can you tell me why TEC would be "fortunate" to have Cutie as a cleric, given his past actions?

As a favor to us both, please recall that I'm not asking for your opinion of the RCC's current clerical requirement of celibacy-just your elaboration of how TEC is fortunate to have someone as a cleric who has a record of breaking clerical vows.

Really doesn't matter what we think, if he did something wrong he will have to answer to the Big Guy when his time comes. Hope he can schwooz Him over for his sake.
