Now on the other hand, if I read post #2 and #3 correctly, and your post where you cited the CCC regarding celibacy, one could come to the conclusion that the entire discussion was indeed about celibacy and married priests and not the issues of abortion, missing Mass, Confession etc, as you say in your last post.
So perhaps as someone who got the “irony in apologetics school”, you can help out as to what is the point of debate between you and the gentlemen you addressed your comments to. After re-reading the thread, it does appear to simple ole me that it was regarding the question of ordination of married men to the Catholic Priesthood vs. celibacy.
I've got to go - taking the kids to a tractor pull - no kidding however...
the way the gentleman brought it up is so typical of way a huge chunk of semi-Catholics or CINOs believe..
as I said emblematic of the larger problem. I wish them farewell for the greener less demanding pastures they desire.
Have a great 4th,
