When a Orthodox clergy or Church of England clergy converts to Catholic, he is normally permitted to be a Roman Catholic priest, and to retain his wife, if he has one.

Not related to this discussion which is to life celibacy as a discipline in for seminarians in the Latin Church.

It addresses the title, “Will the Pope OK Married Priests?”

They already have. Oddly, Baptists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Methodists seem to manage married clergy.

Sure, they get the occasional crank, but they recruit fewer pederasts.
