Chastity Belts Won't Work

They say that you should not kick a dog when he's down. It is not my intent to kick the Catholic Church. Heaven knows that I can't afford to kick any religion while it's down. On the other hand, the news that Pope Benedict's resignation may have been influenced by mounting incidents of sexual impropriety by some of his virgin clerics. Something innovative is forthcoming from the Vatican.   Something like the Pope releasing priests from their vows of chastity (which in far too many cases they take with their fingers crossed) and make it clear that  the sanctity of marriage, including same sex marriage, is welcome in the Catholic Church. It would be far more satisfying to read about priests committing adultery than to read about priests molesting fellow priests and young boys.
