The dating priest

The dating priest

If you want a glimpse of what the priesthood would be like if we had women priests and allowed them to marry, read this. (Go ahead and watch the commercial to get the full story; it doesn’t take long.)

The amazing thing is that here we supposedly have a priest (although Episcopalian), and she as much as admits that her and other clergy in her circle aren’t all that concerned with a strict observance of celibacy in dating. It’s the same old “how far can I go before it’s too far?” that we hear from lay people. Shouldn’t we expect more from our priests? Can’t we expect more?

I’m glad the Church isn’t going down that road.
