More of the same? Same old same old, Yawn? What gets me is the stuff seems to go on and on forever with no end nor resolution in sight. Anyone have any bright ideas?

Considering they have to take a vow of celibacy anyway, maybe they should just have them turn in their testicles before ordination as priests. Just a thought. Or they could just issue them all sex dolls and require daily use. There is a fundamental problem telling men to never have sex. It's just not human nature. Like playing Whack-A-Mole with sexuality. You suppress it here and it pops up there.

I actually believe the celibacy vow attracts men who feel the need to suppress their sexuality. So there is strong selection for pedophiles. Used to be mostly selection for gay men, but they are much more accepted now so not so much these days. Such men didn't go into the priesthood so they can molest children: They did it to avoid sex altogether, but that almost always fails.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

Maybe the Pope should issue an encyclical declaring that Whack-a-Pole (in delicti privatum) is not a sin?

Bright ideas?
How about.....so many religious folks don't put a lot of importance on that sort of thing. Boys will be boys....even priests.

I don't get it either. So many christians love DT despite (or in many cases because of, gasp) his raunchy life. He can grab um by the you know what, he can hang out with child sex trafficker, pay off hookers, marry a porn star.
Envy?

I don't know why it doesn't stop and no action seems to be taken.

That's essentially what seems to be already.

How's about teaching them to dance in the rain?

So let me ask anyone out there this. If God didn’t want men to be attracted to women why did He (in his infinite wisdom) make them so attractive? With all of their curves, and their wonderful eyes, and their soft skin and beautiful hair?

One can insert man-to-man desire here also. Help me here Rick!

Yet the Catholic Church seems to want to suppress those desires. What in JC Christ’s name is wrong with it? Although as most of us know it all came down to property rights because back in the day the Catholic priests could— and did own—church property blah blah blah. No need for “issue” as issue could then cause a property rights problem for the property owning church.
