You know, if they would stop reading from their own Cathecism, and start reading Gods Word, they would find that Paul stated that if you are able to be celibate and do the work of God, then great, but if you "burn", meaning if you have a strong need to fulfill yourself sexually, then you should marry.
If a Church is going to state that they are believers of Jesus Christ, then at very least they should follow His Word. No offense intended to the Pope or to anyone else, but the Pope is not Christ, and so the Pope's word has very little importance, and zero importance when it comes to the Word of God.
p.s. maybe priests became priests in the first place because they were gay, and wanted to hide the fact. I mean the ones who have committed these crimes, of course. Years ago, you didn't "come out of the closet" like they do today, so to keep people from thinking they were gay because they didn't marry, they could join the clergy and then it wouldn't seem weird that they didn't marry. Just a thought in passing.
