There is no link between celibacy and the priesthood.It should remain a choice for those who wanted it. It's a practical problem; not a theological problem. If it were a theological problem, the Eastern churches could not have married priests in their home territories.Benedict XVI PP has accepted married priests in an Ordinariate. This is perhaps the backdoor to the problem of married Clerics. As long as we can move into the 21st century, recognise the problems we have and get on with the real job of the Church, i.e. ministering to the needs of the laity in the best possible way recognising that we are now in the 21st century and not in post medieval times. Let us have happily married clerics who really want to be in the church to serve. Such a move could be beneficial, as clergy with a family could offer different gifts and it would enable men who did not feel called to celibacy to enter the priesthood. There is no reason why clerics shouldn't be allowed to marry. It has always been a matter of discipline rather than doctrine. The practice of not allowing clerics to marry in the Roman Catholic Church has its origins in discipline not doctrine. The book is good to all Christians.
