I’m a Catholic and think priests should be allowed to marry women.

Despite the teaching of Christ and St. Paul?

By the way, 21 of the 22 Churches sui juris which comprise the Catholic Church, ordain, as a norm, married men. However, none of those Churches allows a Priest to marry after ordination. Just like the Greek Orthodox Church.

Jesus nor Paul taught against married bishops or any other clergy...

Jesus said there are eunuchs for the kingdom's sake and Paul said it's good if you can remain single, but do not forbid any to marry...

Peter's children likely would like to have a conversation with you...
