Ugandan Catholic Priest Suspended for Sparking Off The Marriage Debate Among Priests

In Uganda a Priest has come out openly to say, his life is empty without a woman. He called openly for a fresh debate on the marriage of priests saying priests are living void lives here on earth.

As the new Pope takes over the Vatican as Pope Francis, in Uganda a Priest has come out openly to say, his life is empty without a woman. He called openly for a fresh debate on the marriage of priests saying priests are living void lives here on earth. They claim to be experts in counseling rocky marriages when in fact,  they have no idea what marriage is all about.

 

He argued that in their pretentious lives of celibacy, priests are known to be consummate abusers of children, they are factors in many broken marriages with women they have themselves wedded. A few Ugandan Priests have been jailed for the crime of defilement and all these Father Musala believes is happening because of the difficult vows of celibacy  among Catholic clerics.

 

Father Musala put his views online and the article went viral. His Kampala Cardinal felt the Priest had erred when he used  the wrong forum to express his views on such a touchy matter as ending celibate vows by priests.

As if by coincidence, Pope Francis has also been widely reported as having said, a girl once made him dazzle with butterflies in his stomach while he was young Seminarian. He met the girl at the wedding of his uncle and did not pray for a full week because each time he tried to pray, the image of this crush would instead pop up in his head. For the Holy See to insinuate these views just a few days old as the new Pope at the Vatican spells  signs that the Vatican may after all  in the leadership of Pope Francis, revive the debate on marriage among priests.

When I imagine how Monks hide away in the wild, deep  in the mountain caves to live a complete life of prayer and communion with God, I admire them, but I also know that they are ordinary mortals without the extraordinary powers to escape the naturally sex drive. Perhaps, getting them through holly matrimony could make them appreciate God’s creation even better.

    If priests want to marry they should be able to and set a good example of how husbands should treat wives. They would also gain first hand knowledge on what it is like to be married and be able to speak with more understanding.

    It’s in the Doctrine that they are married to God so if that changes I would like to see Priests marry instead of taking that bottled-up sexual tension out in perverse manners., i.e. with young boys and men. The Methodists Priests are allowed and since I have been with both beliefs, I know how closely related the Doctrines are. Great share. :)

    it’s an unnatural state to live without the opposite sex. It’s sinful (I believe) to expect it of priests. In any case, most of them are not living without sex. They are abusing children, and many priests do actually live with women.

    While in Rome ……….. he agreed to be a priest! If not leave. We have seen many do that, right?
