...afraid to go to Ed Peters' website- just wanted to say....the Church has never officially supported gay unions, abortions, women's ordinations, etc BUT yes, allowing married men to be ordained deacon and priest is a long tradition of the Church- I am so sick of this tradition being dumped in with EVIL activities- I understand that this wacko priest is probably talking about celibate priests then being 'married'- which is against the order of the sacraments, but I just wanted to clarify a bit. This sad priest is a 'liberal'- but in the East where married priests are normal, you will find that we are more 'conservative' than most.
