A Bunch of New Married Priests?

Just weeks after I suggested Bishop Sartin pursue a married priesthood, the Vatican announced their own new strategy. The Pope has authorized an overture to disaffected conservative Anglicans to come on over to the Catholic side en masse. They were offered their own rite to retain some traditional Anglican elements. Anglican priests can even keep their wives (if they want to). Only married bishops would lose their miters in the crossing (no married bishops allowed).

The details are still being worked out, but it would be interesting to see how many Anglicans might actually take the offer. Up to this point, I know more Catholic priests than Anglicans (Episcopalians) who switched sides. Many switched to get married. Will they be welcomed back? Early reports suggest that only Anglican priests who are married can be married, with a resounding "NO" to anyone else. Alas, only a stop-gap measure

Good News!. Every man are authorized to have a family the bible says it. This is what i want in a Catholic church. But Im not agree that the Bishop are not allowed. If we remember about the news The most priest and Bishop in he Vatican they rape a women or a nun. But I dont know how true is it.

For me I think we are all allowed to married once.
