Have you ever wondered why the deity is hiding?
All those prayers from Jews, Catholics, Muslims and Protestants all begging to be loved has to be hard on the invisible nerves.

I certainly would not answer the prayers of someone who was lying in my name if I were a god.

Catholics have married priest, those that have converted from other faiths. When they retire they will be replaced with a single priest.
"Catholic priests do not marry because, while Christ does indeed
approve of marriage for the Christian clergy, He much prefers that
they do not marry. He made this quite clear when He praised the
Apostles for giving up "all" to follow Him, saying, "And every one
that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or
mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name's sake, shall
receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting."
(Matt. 19:27-29). The Apostle Paul explained why the unmarried
state is preferable to the married state for the Christian
clergy: "He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things
that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is
with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may
please his wife: and he is divided." (1 Cor. 7:32-33). In other
words, matrimony is good Christ made it one of the holy
sacraments of His Church but it is not conducive to that
complete dedication which is incumbent upon those who submit
themselves to another of Christ's holy sacraments that of Holy
Orders. Even so, the unmarried state of the Catholic priesthood
is not an inflexible law under certain conditions a priest may
be dispensed from this law."
You said, quote, ""Catholic priests do not marry because, while Christ does indeed

Matthew 19:27-29, 27 "Then Peter said in reply, "See, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?" 28 Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name's sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life."

Priest....if you are in good standing with the Roman Catholic church, if you have been to confession and if you are Roman Catholic you can receive communion. IF IF IF!!!!!!!!!! If not, the priest says, cross your arms and you can receive a blessing. Cross your arms?????????? Pathetic self-centered, self-righteous and self-serving defines the Roman Catholic church.

Bologna with whip cream on top??? That's gross man.

The Priest is supposed to proclaim the truth no matter what.
The Catholic Church proclaims the truth in spite of popular opinion and cultural influence.
When you guys marry gay people and promote condoms and other contraceptives, you're are doing so because that's what the folks in your congregation want.
The Catholic Church doesn't take a vote on what they should teach. So even if the Priest has feelings otherwise, he will not (or should not) go against his Bishop. And since Christ is the founder of the Catholic Church, we are assured that they will not error on any teachings.
So far, everything checks out too. You've failed to provide any evidence of the Church in error. In fact, you need to use deception - like when you falsely accused them of changing the 10 commandments - to promote your religion.

Getting a Grip
"Masturbation is a normal, natural activity throughout life," says Robert Pollack, a psychology professor at the University of Georgia. It may even contribute to mental health and not doing it may lead to psychosexual problems.
I suspect that would have been a far better option for the children and any others who were violated by the RCC priest.
Where is this omnipotent deity when these atrocities are going on right within the "church"---"the one true church"?

Not only was Peter married, 38 other Popes were married too. So what? If the Church suddenly allowed all clergy to get married, Christ wouldn't condemn em all to hell for it. Celibacy isn't dogma. Its a Church rule; a discipline. And its completely shown in scripture as well.

Are you stupid or just plain ignorant??? The example of Peter being married applies to the crapola your fellow mackerel snapper mentioned that Jesus said it was better if they WERE NOT MARRIED.

Celibacy is not dogma but a priest poking little boys must be. Why do I say that? Because it goes on all of the time.

But the closing of these mostly poor parishes and selling off the buildings...is bad.
And why doesn't. ROME ..if it id ONE church make up the shortfall that may have come from these payments and ghd econmoy.
Those people noe have to take hisses or go all the way 3cities away to find home churches.
we have menu people of different languages. Down here and these local parishes were their home.
The CC is kn the very position with a central head to help them. Imo.
Dod you ever consider that if the church was not overrun with pedophile priests, this would never have been a problem?

What truth is the priest spilling out of his mouth when he tells people in order to take communion you must be in good standing with the Roman Catholic church, if they have been to confession and if they are Roman Catholic. What truth is that? No truth...just bologna.

Also, the Roman Catholic church proclaims it's perverted version of truth not Biblical absolute truth.

My denomination does not marry same sex perverts. But your Roman Catholic church covers up and lies for the priests so they can continue to sodomize defenseless little boys. I bet you are busting your buttons over that great TRUTH!!!

Its called donations.
How many jobs did you have where you worked for free??
None right?? lol

When I asked you if the priests were on "god's" payroll ... I meant that even if the god existed, a Jewish god would not ask Catholic priests to preach under any circumstances whatsoever.

They don't have that much cash laying around, and most of the parish/school closings are due to demographic shifts. They aren't viable or the areas they served don't have the population they once did.
The Vatican has, but they will not support simething they know is a lost cause.
