Why are you throwing out what is a well known hoax, nothing but a bunch of bigoted anti-Catholic garbage?
Don't bother answering......we all know why.
I'm beginning to believe it was a hoax. But then we have to face the reality that the pope truly believes his church is the only true church.

Celibacy in the Priesthood
In examining the issue of celibacy, we should first address its historical development in the life of the Church and then, next week, its spiritual basis and relevance for today’s clergy.
Our Lord presented celibacy as a legitimate lifestyle not only by His very life, since He never married, but also in His teaching. When our Lord emphasized that marriage was a covenant between husband and wife and thereby prohibited divorce and re-marriage (cf. Mt 19:3-12), He concluded, "Some men are incapable of sexual activity from birth; some have been deliberately made so; and some there are who have freely renounced sex for the sake of God’s reign." Traditionally, our Church — as cited in the Catechism (No. 1579)— points to this "free renunciation of sex for the sake of God’s reign" as a basis for celibacy.

----------
Jesus didn't marry because He didn't come to make more flesh in the world. He came to overcome the sin into which flesh had fallen. he couldn't do that by obeying the flesh.
He also said that there were very few who could 'deal' with celibacy...not hundreds...even thousands...who are required to promise to do so as a requirement for their position in the CC...and many of them don't make it.
I know that you will say that they 'willingly' take that pledge...but YOU know that if they do not, they will not be accepted.
"Few" does not mean "None". Obviously, "Some" could accept it even in Jesus' time.

The Orthodox Church also has celibacy requirements as I noted in a subsequent post. What are your thoughts on that?

The definition of the Greek word for tradition in Scripture is: a precept; specially, the Jewish traditionary law:--ordinance, tradition.

You, typical of graduates of Hollywood 101, use the English definition: A time-honored practice or set of such practices....

Beginning to believe? Why didn't you check it out instead of putting your trust in web sites such as "Diversity Chronicle" and "Historical News" or whatever? That would have been the wisest and most prudent thing to do, the most "Christian" thing to do.

How many churches did Christ build? To how many churches did he impart His authority to bind and loose and give the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven?

So, of course, the Pope believes it! It's true! Have you ever read the document referred to in those articles you keep linking to? Just like your error about the "3rd Vatican Council", you're accepting whatever you read on the internet, no matter who publishes it, instead of going to the source and finding out what is truly stated, truly taught, truly believed. Knowledge is a wonderful thing.

When churches split, each keeps some of the original beliefs. Celibacy is still not a lifestyle that can be commanded of others. It is the foundation stone of the abuse scandal so prevalent today. Many of those men had high hopes of living a holy life, but they didn't understand that "the flesh is enmity (at war) with the spirit."

Darwin and modern evolutionists still have lots of faith that given long enough periods of time,(lots of time) frogs would evolve into handsome princes.

[QUOTE who="ReginaM."]In the Eastern Church, a distinction was made between bishops and other clergy as to whether they had to be celibate. Emperor Justinian’s Code of Civil Law forbade anyone who had children or even nephews to be consecrated a bishop. The Council of Trullo (692) mandated that a bishop be celibate, and if he were married, he would have to separate from his wife before his consecration. Priests, deacons, and subdeacons were forbidden to marry after ordination, although they were to continue to fulfill their marital vows if married before ordination. These regulations still stand for most of the Eastern Churches.

....but why??? You tell us the rules but you don't give clear information of what the real purpose for being celebrate is.

.....HUH!.....The clergy endorses the loving marriage of their followers, to love, be loved and have children, but the very same church that encourages marriage forbids their own clergy to enjoy the love of marriage and children themselves.

ReginaM.

....Its all about control.

....today you say no marriage for clergy!! But when the church finally changes their stance (and they will) and makes celibacy optional, that too will be the day you will say that's a good idea!!

.....,I wish for once you would use your own abilities to make decisions yourself, instead of changing your mind ONLY! When the church changes their mind.

No, I had not heard that...but, why am I not surprised? Have you ever heard of Helen of Troy? An opposing army could not get through Troy's defense, so they "gave the city a gift'...a wooden horse that contained some of their soldiers. They were in...not by force, but by deceit.

So holy are you. Never err or never wrong, or you just don't admit it.? I do not accept everything I read on the internet liar. What a good Christian you are compared to me.
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Can you say with all certainty that Jesus wasn't speaking to all twelve disciples?
What do you think of what Paul spoke against?
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
Is there another interpretation for this scripture or does it mean what it says literally?

Jesus didn't come to earth to leave a Book.
Jesus came to earth and established a living church, The Catholic Church.
Jesus established a SPIRITUAL church.....body of believers.....

Has NOTHING to do with the catholic, baptist, methodist churches, etc........

By stepping forward despite this warning, when invited to do so, and by co-operating in the rest of the ordination service, the candidate is understood to bind himself equivalently by a vow of chastity. He is henceforth unable to contract a valid marriage, and any serious transgression in the matter of this vow is not only a grievous sin in itself but incurs the additional guilt of sacrilege.
If he does not accept this requirement by stepping forward....a priest he is not...pure and simple...

In reality, the celibacy requirement had absolutely nothing to do with it. A healthy man if unable to keep his vow, would seek out a woman, not a child or teenager. Baptists and other Protestant clergy don't take vows of celibacy and sex abuse is far greater among them than Catholic priests, so your claim is inaccurate.

While "few" are unable to accept it, some are and are called to do so by God. The vast majority of priests.....94-95% are able to. How do you account for that?
