Cardinal Kasper says Francis will allow married priests, if bishops request it

Issue will be aired.

Some qq I would have: Will they become 2nd-class citizens in a celibate-dominated church? Will they receive 1st-class education, as in theology, bible study, and above all, preaching? Will celibacy continue to be respected etc.?

Call me suspicious.

Actually, Kasper is saying the right things (as if my endorsement carried weight):

“Personally, I’m very much in favor of maintaining celibacy as an obligatory way of life with a commitment to the cause of Jesus Christ, but this doesn’t exclude that a married man can carry a priestly service in special situations,” Kasper said.

In any case, the article touches many bases, including those marked by your faithful servant, Mr. Suspicious.
