#2 Marrying one another, a 'backdoor fix' for decades of scandal. Window three is still open. All betting closes in 2 minutes.

#6 The early church allowed married priests. A thousand years ago, when the church amassed so much wealth was marriage forbidden so the church's wealth could not be handed down to the clergy's descendants.

Don't think that will be a problem anymore. Less relative wealth, more transparent accountability and information travels too fast to hide it.

#7 This is not a scandal, more just a long time coming. What other faith demands celibacy from their preachers? I'm actually not aware of any. Maybe the Buddhists, just because they renounce everything fun and interesting about life?

He should do this, and soon. And then start fixing the Church's stubborn and evil insistence on saving child rapists from the public eye and much deserved imprisonment (unfortunately nobody seems to be executing these people even when they are convicted).

#8 Still, it would increase the 'Housing Allowance', and salaries, for some already cash-strapped congregations.

Right now their salary is maxed out at about $45K, plus vehicle and housing, around here.

I'm not real up on the intricacies of Buddhism, but...

  • I haven't heard of Buddhist "priests." Shinto, yes, Buddhist, no.

  • Recalling ancient conversations with Lesser Vehicle monks in Thailand, most men who become monks do it for a year to five years, not for life. I don't even think Abbots stay forever, unless they retire into a monestary.

  • It gives them time to concentrate on the Whichness of Why, or the Whatever of the Human Navel, and it teaches them some humility.

  • No idea if the same applies to Greater Vehicle Buddhists, and I'm even less informed on oddballs like Tantrists.
