Although I always said that the solution of abuse is not disuse but proper use, sometimes something needs to stop if the abuse kept going on and on. As much as I respect the theological basis of clerical celibacy in the Roman Catholic church, I guess clerical celibacy requirement must end, in the light of recent news about systematic sex abuse (and cover-up) in Ireland and Germany. If need be, let the celibacy be vowed voluntarily. The abuse phenomenon, sadly, is global. The tragedy must not be used as an excuse to be a jerk and to take a cheap shot at the Roman Catholic church, though. As much as we disagree with the Roman Catholic church, their problem is ours as well. Heck, our log might be larger than our brother’s speck.
