“non-celibate priests. . .”
This is always a good one. As if a man has to be married to keep him from molesting the vulnerable.
How about the Boy Scouts only accept married men, under that auspice? No that’s a completely different subject. that’s under the file “how to undermine the US military and everything that makes it good. It’s where they WANT to pervert the young.
Actually, it’s a pointless one to drag into the discussion of the changelessness of the Church, even from a Latin point of view, seeing that both Eastern-Rite Uniates and the Anglican-Rite Ordinariate have married priests (to say nothing of the Vatican recognizing the validity of Orthodox ordinations of married men).
Priestly celibacy is not a doctrinal matter, and unlike the others could easily be changed, seeing that it is a discipline of the Latin Rite only, not required by the decisions of any council you Latins consider ecumenical nor by any ex cathedra papal pronouncement, nor likely to ever be so required, as that would be an impediment to reunion with us Orthodox, drive the Uniates back to Orthodoxy and close off the opening Pope Benedict made to Anglicans who are trying to be proper Christians, confessing the Apostolic faith, rather than the latest enthusiasms from Canterbury or 815 2nd Avenue.
