    Such article titles can be mis-leading. >>>>



    Pope Francis suggested in an interview last year that the Catholic Church's rule that priests be celibate "can change" and admitted he was tempted by a woman as a young seminarian.

    ....For now, though, "the discipline of celibacy stands firm," he said, adding that priests should quit if they can't abstain from sex or if they get a woman pregnant.

    ....

    "I was dazzled by a girl I met at an uncle's wedding," he said, according to Aleteia. "I was surprised by her beauty, her intellectual brilliance ... and, well, I was bowled over for quite a while.
    "I kept thinking and thinking about her. When I returned to the seminary after the wedding, I could not pray for over a week because when I tried to do so, the girl appeared in my head. I had to rethink what I was doing."m

    I wrote the title in response to the link I posted with statement above when the pope was a seminary student....kind of tongue in cheek. I know that the RCC has no intention of changing its policy.

    I gotcha.... But, the article title is still mis-leading, IMO.

    However, I think the policy should be changed, anyway.

    But, then, there's a lot in the RCC I think is absurd and non-Biblical.
