All of you can say what you will, but this is a step in the right direction from the Vatican. Admitting they have a problem rather than covering it up at least shows they don't think they should be above controversy and want to try and help solve the problem by getting rid of bad priests rather than move them around.

A couple things, first, AFAK, this interview wasn't recorded and it was with an atheist, not that theres anything wrong with that lol…so until the pope/vatican actually confirms these numbers, Ill reserve judgement. With that said 2% sounds low. I would imagine the number of ****s and gay men to be higher(no I'm not equating the 2) and that doesn't assume that higher % acted on their urges.

On a serious note, child marriage in the Muslim world is an epidemic. It's freaking disgusting.. Places like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Niger, Saudi Arabia, Chad, Mali - it's common practice to marry young girls 14 and under.

Pakis are so phucked up they force their 6-9 yr old daughters to marry in order to settle disputes with other Pakis.

In 2013, Nigeria attempted to change Section 29, subsection 4 of its laws and thereby prohibit child marriages. This was opposed by Islamic states of Nigeria, who called any attempts to prohibit child marriages as un-Islamic. Christianity and Islam are practiced by roughly 50%-50% of its population respectively, and the country continues with personal laws from its British colonial era laws, where child marriages are forbidden for its Christians and allowed for its Muslims.[61][62] Child marriage is a divisive topic in Nigeria and widely practiced. In northern states, predominantly Muslim, over 50% of the girls marry before the age of 15.[63]


The age at which India's Muslim girls can legally marry, according to this Muslim Personal Law, is 9, and can be lower if her guardian (wali) decides she is sexually mature.[80][81] Over the last 25 years, All India Muslim Personal Law Board and other Muslim civil organizations have actively opposed India-wide laws and enforcement action against child marriages; they have argued that Indian Muslim families have a religious right to marry a girl aged 15 or even 12.



Andrew Bushell claims rate of marriage of 8 to 13 year old girls exceeding 50% in northwest regions of Pakistan



Child marriage rates in Bangladesh are amongst the highest in the world.[12] Every 2 out of 3 marriages involve child marriages. According to statistics from 2005 45% of women then between 25 and 29 were married by the age of 15 in Bangladesh.


The widespread prevalence of child marriage in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been documented by human rights groups.[108][109] Saudi clerics have justified the marriage of girls as young as 9, with sanction from the judiciary.[110] There are no laws in place defining a minimum age of consent in Saudi Arabia

Vatican City (AFP) - Pope Francis promised "solutions" to the issue of priestly celibacy in an interview on Sunday that raised the possibility the Catholic Church could eventually lift the interdiction on married priests.


Asked whether priests might one day be allowed to marry, Francis pointed out that celibacy was instituted "900 years after Our Lord's death" and that clerics can marry in some Eastern Churches under Vatican tutelage.

"There definitely is a problem but it is not a major one. This needs time but there are solutions and I will find them," Francis said, without giving further details.

The interview was the third in a series with the 90-year-old founder of the La Repubblica daily, Eugenio Scalfari, a famous journalist and known atheist.

Yep, I get the impression the reason they picked this guy as Pope was to get someone who seems above reproach and has a zeal to clean house. The Church has had a decade or so of really bad publicity, they want to reverse the trend and openly tackling corruption and abuse is the way to do it.

I believe they did something similar back when Protestantism emerged, which was partly a backlash against widespread venality and arrogance in the Church.

Yes, the council of Trent which was primarily to address corruption and lack of education in the clergy, followed by the counter-reformation and the formation of the Jesuits.

Normally I'd say no, not a chance. But Francis is proving to be rather unpredictable.


He did say this in his book though. An interview question before he was Pope.






Let’s see . . . I’ll begin with the last question: whether or not the Church is ever going to change its position with regard to celibacy.

First, let me say I don’t like to play mind-reader. But assuming that the Church did change its position, I don’t believe it would be because of a lack of priests. Nor do I think celibacy would be a requirement for all who wanted to embrace priesthood.

If it did, hypothetically, do so, it would be for cultural reasons, as is the case in the East, where married men can be ordained. There, at a particular time and in that particular culture, it was so, and it continues to be so today.

I can’t stress enough that if the Church were to change its position at some point, it would be to confront a cultural problem in a particular place; it would not be a global issue or an issue of personal choice. That is my belief. . . .

Right now I stand by Benedict XVI, who said that celibacy should be maintained.

Now, what kind of effect will this have on the number of those called to the priesthood? I am not convinced that eliminating celibacy would cause such an increase in those called to the priesthood as to make up for the shortage.

Mr Beer

Yeah, seems unlikely to me, would be an interesting development though.

IMO the marriage ban was originally put in place to ensure that clergy members couldn't build dynasties (i.e. potential rivals to Church power), since their property would revert to the church in the absence of officially recognised children and wives. Bishops were serious business back in the day.

Yeah, I think that was part of it towards the end. But two things argue against that being the only, or even main reason. First, the practice of clerical celibacy, was not universally formalized as dogma until the First Lateran Council. But there was a development of the doctrine seen in the early church fathers, and many other preceding councils. Second, it's true that the episcopate was srs business. But all clergy were excluded from marriage, not just bishops.

You being a bit of a scholar on Church history and all, do you think the practice of celibacy is largely out dated for priests, and is just a cultural remnant from a time when legacy was an important part of asset distribution, or is there a more pragmatic reason the practice is kept in place?

I don't think it is a biblical principal, otherwise protestants would have to find a lot of loopholes to have a wife, and its clear that rabbis had wives during biblical times.

Point one, sure. The idea didn't just come out of thin air or it would likely have been too tough a sell.

Point two, well yeah bishops or any powerful clergy were the target of this idea but it had to be applied across the board, its not like you could let ordinary priests marry but forbid bishops.

I'm curious where the 2% statistic comes from. Everywhere I search I keep coming up with the 4% statistic which mainly comes from this study (I think).

http://archives.weirdload.com/docs/johnjayreport.pdf

This is still lower than the average and most of the so called experts think you will see a similar rate among most large organizations and other faiths. It seems this has been a problem in society in general that has been ignored because people don't know what to do about it. There are a certain segment of the population that prey on children and it's difficult to predict who they are and be there 24/7 to prevent the abuse from happening. Hopefully society will not be so hush-hush about everything and expect the victims to suffer in silence for decades. I guess after a child was attacked people thought it is better to not talk about it when there was nothing they could do to fix the child emotionally. Perhaps they thought talking about it made it worse than bottling it up and pretending it never happened.

I personally wouldn't have a problem with the relaxation of celibacy rules in the latin rite church. They are not a dogma of the church, but a discipline. Disciplines can change as the church and the culture evolves, dogma cannot. The eastern rite catholics are allowed to be married, just like the eastern orthodox priests (although not the bishops). I'd be okay with religious orders (Jesuits, Dominicans, etc) requiring priestly celibacy while regular parish priests being allowed a catholic marriage. Times have changed. And again, it wasn't a dogma, it was a practice.

I agree, there is no bible verse that strictly speaking, says priests should be celibate. There certainly is encouragement for it though, from Paul, for those who are able to do it. I think that had something to do with the development of the practice.

I agree that the episcopal dynasty worry was a real factor in the final decision. I'm just saying, the encouragement of the practice had a long development all the way from the first century. As to your second point, the eastern orthodox do allow priests to marry while forbidding the bishops. Same for the catholic eastern rite, and catholic oriental rite. A married priest cannot be tapped for promotion to Bishop. It's a decision they have to make knowing what the limitations of their advancement in the church hierarchy will be.

What I think could happen in the upcoming synode, is that priests could be allowed to be married before entering the priesthood. I still think that's iffy though. What I really think the synode is going to address is reforming marriage annulment rules and relaxing the prohibition of taking communion for people remarried without an annulment. And the latter is actually a bigger surprise for me, since that IS a dogma of the church.

what has not allowing marriage got to do with molesting kids?

Nothing. It was a separate thread of discussion that emerged from the conversation.

I'm thinking maybe the priest can get laid like normal people, and not have lifelong sexual tension leading to easy prey kids in their churches being abused.

I wouldn't think it would make a difference, ****'s are ****'s regardless

Yep, I think it's not so much going to directly cut down upon predation (although it might) but rather could help create an environment where priests' sexuality isn't some taboo subject. When any kind of sex is wrong, child molestation is 'just' another sin.
