"I've always thought the Church would be better off if it didn't ordain anybody under 30...Jesus didn't begin his ministry until he was 30."

Oh, I think the issue of age regarding the Church's criteria for ordaining priests is the least of it's problems at the moment. Getting anyone to believe pedophilia/homosexuality isn't running rampant from top to bottom is.

Maybe. But I still think that asking a 24 year old to take a lifelong vow of celibacy is unrealistic.
