i don't understand
really, i don't wanna debate or anything, but if there are any Catholics here, i've always wanted to know something, but i don't ask anyone personally because i don't want to come across as rude or give any priests the idea that i am trying to stump them, i'm just very curious
what i'm wondering is why are catholic priests not allowed to get married? i have NEVER understood this, when marriage and sex are gifts from God, why deny the very person who's doing the most Godly work by spreading the gospel the right to have a wife and children? where did this originate? and what is the purpose of this practice? i mean what are they trying to prove by not letting them get married or have sex?
