Re: Now Ray Lahey Down to Sleep, He Asks the Lord...Oct 4th, 2009
Is that a problem? Not to sound obtuse, but, does a church 'have' to change the way it does things so that more people like it, or should it be free to drive itself into oblivion?
Celibacy doesn't cause paedophilia or any other form of sexual abuse, from any of the links or studies I've been able to find.
What it DOES seem to cause, is a shrinking clergy, and thus trouble among its ranks. So... whose issue is that? If it wants to carry on choking itself out... why do people outside of it really care?
I don't care until it becomes an issue about harm to people and planet. I can't speak for anyone else.
