TKC MUST READ!!! FAMILY ADVICE FROM KANSAS CITY FATHER WITH NO KIDS: SHOULD PRIESTS MARRY???



Not a lot of people know this but there are at least 120 Catholic priests in the U.S. who are married and many have kids. Meanwhile, the Pope is contemplating ordaining more married priests.

But for now, practitioners of this faith are mostly single to serve the Lord without the burden of rugrats.

And so, this bit of family advice and Sunday contemplation doesn't come from experience but with some scriptural reference . . .

KC Bishop James V. Johnston: Teach Your Children Well

Here's the word . . .

"The conversations continue and the questions get more complex, but the “classroom” of the family is meant to continue through all these years. Conversations about faith in the family should not be rare, but frequent. As children mature, this freedom to reflect together can find great benefit when a topic comes up at school or in a movie or television show. The parents have set the stage to reflect on everything in the child’s life through the lens of faith and the relationship with God.

"I know several families that have mastered this “art.” For example, when certain “lifestyles” are glamorized on television or the news, the parents use it as a teaching moment as to why Christians do not live that way. They reinforce their child’s identity and capacity to live “the truth in love” (Eph 4:15)."

And while we respect this high ranking cleric who has done reasonably well in turning the local diocese around after scandal took down his predecessor . . .

Here's a TKC truism that's worth a quick share on Sunday: Fathers and families of EVERY demographic strata HATE parenting advice.

For those of who haven't "slipped one past the goalie" this gentle reminder can be helpful in avoiding more than a few stupid arguments.

You decide . . .

I don't give a fuck if priests marry or have kids or what. I just pray that Byron has been neutered.

We ought to be neutering people in the hood. They have lots of kids because they are whores and they get more welfare.

You forgot that they are also single parent households. In many cases zero parents and the grandmother raised the children

Priests are human and should not be denied the comfort of a loving relationship. Substituting human companionship with a life of sacrifice, loneliness and denial goes against our basic instincts. Today's priests need all the support they can get as they do a very difficult job.

It's time for the rule to change.

But, above all, make sure to brainswash your children into the Jesus Cult.

That way, they'll be free thinking adults, & better able to naviagate the dangerous world religion has given them.

What priests don't realize is that a guy gets less pussy after he gets married

Byron, who is acting as a Front Man for the Kansas City Atheist Coalition...since their current polyamorous leaders don't seem to have the guts to comment, and only like to picket Christian young people but NEVER Muslim meetings...wants the atheists to have a clear run at "educating" your kids.

Byron cries about the dangerous world that religion has given them, totally unaware that atheistic scientists have filled the world with WMD's that could destroy civilization in a day.

Not to mention mind controlling drugs and advanced technologies to make sure you obey the ruling parties.

Byron is a TOOL.

A servant can only have one master. When you're married and a parent, you're number one responsibility is to your family. When you're a priest, you're responsibility is to the Church, first and foremost.

This is why when Jesus called on the first disciples, he told them to leave their families behind and follow him.

It isn't about marriage. it is about controlling sex which has been a huge factor in the head games religions have played for thousands of years. Now that so many folks are fucking their kids, their brothers, their sisters,their mommies and daddies, their cats, their neighbors, little boys, their teachers and probably their priest the church is loosing its grip. So why not try to win a few back and making them good catholics by telling them it is OK to do what they will do anyway?

The married, with children, priests have largely come from Epicopalian Priests who left the Epicopal Church over pro-homosexual issues.
They were granted special permissions to become Catholic Priests.
