I had the same question in my mind. Not a very informative article, so far as the "former" priests are concerned.

"Former", as in they are no longer active priests but once were.

In the words of Joe Biden, this is a BIG f-ing deal! Active priests are subject to Canon law are can be disciplined for going against the church. Once they leave the priesthood they are free to speak out against the teachings of the church.

Many have left the priesthood because of disagreements with the church over birth control, marriage for priests, and gay rights. We've also seen the nuns who have been censured by the pope for speaking out as well.

Most significantly, 60 of these 63 former priests are married heterosexuals.

I did get that, but from the headline one would think that they were not former priests, but rather former Wash. state priests, but still in the priesthood. A significant difference.

I'm more inclined to agree with your interpretation.

If you're still confused, just read the article. It's pretty clear they are ex-priests, NOT ex-Washingtonians.

If that is the case, then the word "Former" is misplaced in the headline. It should read " 63 Wash. State Catholic Former Priests Support Marriage Equality".

Bitch at the author about it if your too f-ing stupid to read the article and figure it out!

No wonder people think gays are just a bunch of bitchy old queens! Thanks for living up to the stereotype.

Good grammer is VERY important ! And this poorly written headline shows the terrible misunderstandings that can arise when a writer and editor apparently have no idea what the rules of grammer are !

"Good grammar is very important. This poorly written headline....."

I fixed the 2nd sentence for you. More grammatically correct than your version.

BTW it's spelled g-r-a-m-m-A-r. not E-r

The insurance is not to protect the child molesters. The insurance is to protect the RCC from being bankrupted by the actions of the child molesters sent by Satan to bankrupt the church.

So it's main focus isn't on saving children but saving money.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

The RCC ARE the child molestors, and the biggest one of all is that Nazi piece of crap squatting in the Vatican!!

I wonder how many boys the pope has butthumped over the years?
