Celebacy. Why in the world does the Catholic church insist on celebacy? Jeff Penyan tackles this subject today on his blog, The Cross Reference. While I don't think celebacy is necessary, Jeff presents us with an explanation that makes helps us understand the reasoning behind the this seemingly sexist rule. Remember, you cannot equate the Protestant pastor with a priest in the Catholic church. They are completely different roles. Jeff brings all this out in his article The Church and Priestly Celebacy. Read slowly and try to understand. You still may disagree with his conclusions, as I still do, but you'll have a better understand.
