  •  There are married priests... (0+ / 0-)

    in the RCC.

    The myth about celibate apostles was to support the celibacy of priests, bishops and head cheeses, so that they could not claim anything for offspring (very well, but it is no longer necessary with contracts and oaths).

    There are Catholic married priests.
    * Those who migrated from the Anglican and Lutheran churches.
    * Those Eastern Rite churches who say that the pope is OK to be leader.

    Then there are married priests/vicars and bishops in the Anglican Church and the Lutheran Church.

    Not a biggie. But we all know about the RCC and their fixation on "tradition"!
