The recent criticism by Pope Benedict XVI that priests should not question celibacy is typical for an institution that refuses to accept that there must be change in this area.
The Catholic Church continues to bury its head in the sand regarding this issue. Other Christian denominations allow their ministers to marry, as well as the Jewish faith. It is high time for the Catholic Church to come down off its throne and be willing to accept change and to be able to change.
It is the real world and the church needs to get its act together.
