The New York Daily News:
John Cornelius will be ordained a Roman Catholic priest this weekend — and with the blessing of his wife they're giving up their sex life.
Cornelius, a father of three, will become the first married Roman Catholic priest in New York — and Sharyl, his wife of 33-years, has agreed to the whole celibacy thing.
“We have decided to do that voluntarily,” Cornelius told WGRZ-TV. “I have always had friends that are Roman Catholic priests and I appreciate what they've given up to serve God and the priesthood.”
Cornelius, 64, is a former Episcopalian priest who converted three years ago to Catholicism. He said his old church had gotten too liberal for him.
“There was the ordination of the homosexual priest in New England,” he said. “Then it came time for women's ordination. ... It may have been okay for other people, but it was just too much for me.
“I needed someplace where there was order,” he added.
Okay not to be shallow, but looking at the two of them in the picture at the top, do we really believe that either the wife or the husband are going to be missing the sex? Somehow I think that celibacy has been a part of their marriage for quite some time, being ordained a Catholic priest just makes it official.
And they say that gay rights will not have any effect on heterosexual marriage. Really ? Look what it did to this "happy" couple!
Though to be fair it seems that the ordination of the gay priest just about pushed him over the edge, but it was the ordination of those sinful women as priests that proved too much for Father Misogyny here.
H/T to Joe My God.
