As a Latin Rite (Roman) Catholic it does, until I’m a widower. The Eastern Catholic churches (in Ukraine or Iraq, for example), they have married priests, but I don’t believe they ascend in the hierarchy.

Iirc, Bishops in the Eastern and Orthodox churches have to be celibate. Anyway, I was just being technical.

As you said above, there are plenty of denominations that have women in pastoral roles. I wish Sr. Joan Chittister would be honest, before she dies, and join one of them!
