Father Cutie

MIAMI - A popular Miami priest and media personality said Monday he is thinking about leaving the Roman Catholic Church for a woman he loves after a magazine ran pictures of the couple kissing and hugging.
Rev. Alberto Cutie told the CBS "Early Show" on Monday he supports the church's stand that priests should be celibate and said he does not want to become the "anti-celibacy priest." (msnbc.com)

Well the Catholics can certainly count on their hypocrisy. A priest caught with a woman? Asked to step down from the Roman Catholic Church. A priest caught sexually abusing a young boy? Brush it under the rug and move him to another parish, let him keep his job. That's what Jesus would have done.

the catholic church needs to revisit their laws. i'd rather have him roll around the beach with a woman than suppress it into a sickness that involves the only other person allowed to be close to them - alter boys!

(Sigh)... The man is human & he gave into his temptations. He may have fathered one of her children; this could be scandalous for the Church. ESPECIALLY if they knew about it for years & still did nothing. (surprised?)
& I don't think they will revisit that law soon. At some point in history, Catholic priests could have wives. Which meant the Church had to provide for them. It got to the point where they couldn't afford to provide for the priest's dependents! Remember, no contraceptives allowed in the Catholic church.. What a vicious cycle..
