Eunuchs for priests.


Well-known member
I brought up the qualifications set down in Timothy and Titus for leaders. And the reply I got back was from Matthew which really relates to divorce when read in context.

Matt 19:9 to 12

9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

I have no idea how talking about divorce relates to the RCC ignoring scriptures on the requirements of a good leader.

Another passage from Cor was quoted but I cannot remember it. I mean let us be honest unmarried RC priests have committed all sexual sins across the broad spanse of sexual sin. So I cannot see the connect.
