In my continuing effort to become FTCM certified I had to take a class this weekend. The teacher was a former Fundamentalist/Evangelical/Ordained Anglican Minister. (Whew! That was a long and winding road for him) He said that the Byzantine Rite is no longer ordaining married men because it has become such a problem. He had looked into it because he really didn't want to give up being a Minister.

Interesting piece of news. I wonder if it is objectively and authoritatively verifiable? (not that I am questioning you or him, but I've been around the Church long enough that "He said" means "I verify")
