    Florida priest removed after beach photos with woman published


    A Few Random Thoughts
    • Is anyone else relieved that he was caught with an adult woman and not an underage boy? :confused:
    • I'm not Catholic but I'm pretty sure you go to hell for schtupping a priest.
    • I wonder where they will send him? A parish where the average age is 62?
    • They were at the beach who is to say he wasn't going to do a baptism by immersion? :biggrin:

    Not the first priest to fail to live up to his vows and won't be the last. He may end up doing his ministry to a hospital or as an airport/forces chaplain perhaps.

    So ridiculously hypocritical of the American Catholic church. Priests all throughout Africa are openly married and so are a number of priests here in the US who converted to Catholicism from Episcopalianism after their marriages.

    In my friend's parish in Ireland it was discovered the priest was sleeping with his housekeeper and when the town discussed it, they were so happy he was sleeping with a woman that they told the archbishop not to remove him in no uncertain terms. The archbishop backed down.

    Until I realized that the good padre's name really is Father Cutie, I was going to tell you about our town's gorgeous, black-Irish chaplain whom everyone called Father What-a-Waste. It's still funny, but not as.

    He was very outspoken about the ridiculous non-married clergy in RC - I think it's his way of making a statement. There are over 25,000 meN who left due to celibacy issue - if they returned - some of whom can't even read the lessons during Liturgy - there would no shortage of priests in US. So instead, they import foreignors who neither know or want to know the American culture.

    Celibacy was mandated in the 1100's - due to the fact that when the priest died, the family got his inheritance instead of the Church.

    This is not what Jesus intended - love is all you need - neither sexual orientation/gender or celibacy should be at issue - only issue TO SERVE & BE HAPPY.

    Good on him. This notion of abstinence being necessary to be a priest is absolutely ridiculous. Only asexuals could ever be fully devoted priests.

    Well being abstinent is also sending a message. That you will sacrifice a physical relationship and give your life to God and have a relationship with him.

    I want priests to get married to though. I think teaching and spreading love is more important than making sacrifices and exhibiting willpower to show your faith. But both are essential.

    I think there are many ways to show self sacrifice.
    I think they should be allowed to marry. It adds credability when giving a sermon about marraige related issues.
    The church should reconsider, just to save itself.

    Ahh, the handsome priest. I have seen them before. There was one that even put some Spanish Cumbia music at the end of a mass. His point was that we should not all be so uptight and the church can be fun. He even did a little dance. You could just see the women drooling.

    Yes, I am relieved that it is an adult female. The news is somewhat refreshing though not the least bit redemptive.

    No one asked him to take the vow; no one forced him to take it either. It's a matter of living up to your promises....just like in marriage.
    Because so many marriages fail, do you want to abolish the institution of marriage with its promise/vow of fidelity? I don't think so.

    Indeed he is. He puts the "Papi" in "Padre".

    In the Orthdox church, priests can marry, but Bishops can not. In Protestant churches, ministers can marry. Rabbis can marry, as can Imams. It all goes back to the problems the RC had with married priests back in the middle ages.

    Fully agree with both of you. Just makes a job description for perverts and gays; especially gays who can't seem to control themselves around little boys.

    I was gonna say something along those lines..
    But, I was gonna say, if he messed with a little boy, hell not ONLY would he still have his area in the Church..
    They would MOVE his ass up in the higher ranks...
