I know some Roman Catholic priests are already married, but that’s not the norm. But the idea of that changing, to a limited degree at least, has been in news. Particularly recently in regards to Brazil.
So, who thinks this might happen?
Also might end up eventually extending to a point where all priests are allowed to marry, within the next 10-20 years? And yes, I know that’s not what’s being discussed now. How much is that dependent on Francis remaining Pope? How widespread is support for this, both in the general Catholic population, and in the College of Cardinals?
And do forgive me, if I’ve gotten everything incredibly wrong; not Catholic and don’t really know how everything works.
