Celibacy for priests

 |  NCR Today

Lou Dobbs led a 7 minute discussion, "Celibacy and the Priesthood: Should the rules change?," bteween Fr. George Rutler and Anthony Padovano on whether the church should relax the celibacy rule on his CNN show last night.

Rutler is pastor of Church of Our Saviour in New York City. Long-time NCR readers will recognize Padovano's name. He is pioneering member of CORPUS, a group for married Catholic priests.
