Should Catholic Priest And Nuns Be Allowed To Have Sexual Relationships?

Current estimates of Roman Catholic priests in the U.S.= 49,000 to 50,000

Estimates of craddle-robber priests = 3,000 (6.1%) to 8,000 (16.3%)

188 Dioceses in the U.S. Divide 3,000 by 188 = 16 perpetrators per diocese

Divide 8,000 by 188 = 42 perpetrators per diocese

Current experts claim a craddle-robber could abuse 200-265 children in a lifetime.

200 x 16 perps/diocese = 3,200 victims/diocese

200 x 42 perps/diocese = 8,400 victims/diocese

3,200 victims/diocese x 188 dioceses = 601,600 victims in U.S.

8,400 victims/diocese x 188 dioceses = 1,579,200 victims in U.S.

Average American family consists of 4-6 people

(3,200 victims/diocese) 601,600 victims x 4 family members = 2,406,400 indirect victims

60l,000 victims x 6 family members = 3,609,600 indirect victims

(8,400 victims/diocese) 1,579,200 x 4 family members = 6,316,800 indirect victims

1,579,200 x 6 family members = 9,475,200 indirect victims

These numbers are a reflection of immediate family only and do not reflect the indirect victims within the parishes that are affected.

188 Bishops are responsible for the pain of at least 601,600 direct victims and as many as 9,475,200 indirect victims — a total of as many as 10,076,800 people. Clearly, something is wrong.

Using the lower numbers the number of direct victims and survivors alone could populate a city larger than Boston. Using the higher numbers, it would be the fourth largest city in the U.S.— one between the size of Houston and Chicago,

This problem is caused by the Catholic churches archaic attitude towards sexual and human relationships that prevent priest and nuns living a normal, natural existence. This unatural existence leads to sexual tensions and all the problems this creates.

The very same people that are preaching to us that we are sinners!

I would like to know your views on whether you think that priest and nun should be allowed to marry and have normal sexual relations?

Different strokes for different folks, if the Pope is cool with his ministers not getting married, so be it.

But as stated earlier, it would do the world great good if they are allowed to opt to either marry or not to marry;

The world will certainly have less homosexuals, Lesbianism and Peadophilia.

For those of you who believe in the Bible, there's a verse which states that, it is better to marry than to burn. So you can interpret this any way you wish. I think that people should live a life that will not interfere with others. So if staying single is your thing, then the priest and the nuns should do just that.

I don't see what would be wrong if they did have sexual relations. Is there a verse in the scriptures which forbids this? It must be in the Catholic Apocrypha because I've never seen it written in the Bible before. It's strange how Christianity was build on Catholicism and yet the priests and Nuns are not allowed to have sex. I see this as strange because it is written in the Bible for man to replenish the earth. Now if one can not have sex, how in the hell can any of us replenish the earth.

Leave it to Nuns and Priests and we would have a barren earth.

@ Reverend, am glad dat u posted this about the US, the Sodom and Gomorrah of today.

Keep in mind that there are catholics everywhere else and they outnumber the US priests greatly.

If ur insinuating that the reason the priests molest children is because they're sexually frustrated, then pls explain why the married pastors are committing adultery.

Most of these so called priest have nuns as their girlfriends. Screwing each other have been a secret practice amongst them. If not, how do they contract AIDS ? Through holy communion? I dont think so.

This is not a question of if they are allowed to mess each other on not. The truth is that they mess regularly without condom.

Click on this link bellow to read an interesting story about priest dying from aids, am sure they did not contract the disease by taking holy communion.

Fine then, get on your knees, bow your heads and start praying. Who knows, God might actually hear you.

Haha! Just because I have a different belief, I should grow up. See? Christians, always the perfect ones.

@emmie4j ,

Please, don't be so miffed. I was infact trying to post a reply in that thread when it happened that he took it the political/crime arena. Perhaps he meant well and wanted the issue to be widely discussed. Let's cheer up about that and commend the admin/moderator for his foresight - we'll follow the link and make inputs as and when necessary.

@lordimpaq,

Nah-nah, I'm not picking on ajia23 - he knows only too well that he should not be asking rhetorical questions where the answers have already been provided in several other threads on Nairaland.

very many questionable practices, it is so obvious it is from pagan origin,

@gwaine,

don't also use it as a yardstick to pick on ajia23

@ajia23,

Don't use that cheap poser as a yardstick for measuring Christianity. There are so many questionable practices in the Catholic Church that one cannot endorse as Biblical, and evangelical Christians continue to challenge them from the Bible - even on Nairaland. You should know better than to pose that rhetoric - it would just mean the same thing as asking: "Where did Muhammad get his proof of pedophilia from?" or "Where do Islamic fundamentalists and suicide bombers get their proof for committing their acts from?"

Hey all,

"From the beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate" (Mr.10:6-9, Mt.19:4-6).

No where does God say man, even those that have the calling, to not marry. If I am wrong please correct me.

Thank you.

Does that answer the question?
