I’ve seen folks argue in favor of letting Priests get married, or at least get ‘em some.
It occurs to me that there is a whole army of Nuns just sitting around doing nothing...
Damn.... LMAO and some good red wine all over my keyboard and desk. Damn it, still laughing.
It's not a matter of "letting," as if these men were compelled to accept celibacy. Here's the way it works: the Western Church, for the last 1000 years, has chosen priests mostly (not exclusively) from the ranks of celibate men. In other words, these are presumably men who, first of all, figured they had a vocation to celibacy; and after this, they were accepted for ordination. Therefore, this is something these men have chosen; it was not imposed on them.
It is not at all unusual for married men to be ordained. To cite just one example, the Catholic Church in the U.S. has more married ordained deacons (17,000) than it has celibate religious-order priests ---Jesuits, Dominicans, Franciscans, etc. --- (13,000).

Departing from my usual prudence, I have decided to respond to this silly assertion.
