lol...you really need to quit saying I said what I didn't say. I never said they rewrote the NT. The bishops didn't rewrite the NT. the bishops PUT TOGETHER THE NEW TESTAMENT.<quoted text>
If you want to claim that the Catholic church rewrote the NT, provide something besides your conspiracy theories. There is no record of Jesus being married.
For many centuries priests were allowed to marry until the 4th century.
And that was their influence of what was in that compilation of writings and what wasn't included in it. That's a historical fact of what they did to compile what we call the NT.
The early church leaned heavily on things Paul wrote even if what Paul said had some base contradictions with what God said.
The early church founded a requirement to be a priest on this single verse..."1 Corinthians 7:32-34, Paul writes,“An unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, and he is divided."
That verse is what kept the first TWENTY POPES CELIBATE AND SINGLE.
That verse though not law, was an unsaid law that the first twenty popes and to many priests to mention went by to hold clergy positions. They believe Jesus was celibate. Regarding marital status, the pope and priests followed Jesus's words literally to be like him, to be single and celibate and that is how a true man of God was, single and celibate, not married. They felt if you married, your eye wasn't single to the glory and purpose of God. They taught this concept as an iron clad law for so long females took on celibacy to Jesus with these priests and pope. Concerning Jesus, they were against marriage in order to be as Jesus.
FYI, look it up. It was a disgrace to be clergy in the early Roman church and be married. Twenty popes and 99% of their clergy for centuries swore off marriage as ill and wrong if you wanted to be a true follower of Jesus. They believed only the weak and weak in faith became married.

FIRST LATERAN COUNCIL
The first of these councils was held in 1123 during the pontificate of Callistus II; it was the first general council held in the West. Its most important decision was the confirmation of the Concordat of Worms (1122), which ended the controversy between ecclesiastical and secular authorities over investiture. The council also adopted canons forbidding simony and the marriage of clergymen, and it annulled the ordinances of the antipope Gregory VIII (reigned 1118-1121).
SECOND LATERAN COUNCIL
The second council was held in 1139 under Pope Innocent II (r. 1130-1143). It was called to heal the schism caused by the antipope Anacletus II (r. 1130-1138) and decreed excommunication for his followers. The council renewed the canons against clerical marriage and forbade dangerous tournaments.
