I never said homos were interested in getting married to women. I think that if priests were allowed to be married, then you would have a much larger number of heterosexuals entering the priesthood.
As it is right now, especially with American Catholic families having fewer children, the only boys I've seen encouraged to enter the priesthood have been those who displayed homosexual tendencies.
Are you a Catholic?
Where are your facts that married men will be flocking to the pristhood? I see these blanket statements everywhere, the avereage priest makes $18K a year, and works a 16 hour day. So, where is he going to make up that extra money and be able to satisfy a wife and many children. You think all these presently married men are going to quit their jobs and flock to become priests? And when is a single priest going to find time to date a woman? And what happenes when that priest's wife wants a divorce?
Or, who is going to support all those kids these married priests are going to have? Remember no birth control. We had to let a priest go because we couldn't afford to keep him, he was paid by the mass to assist my pastor. Now he does all the masses by himself.
