question about priests and marriage
« on: March 03, 2012, 01:10:52 AM »
Can a man be ordained who, after the death of his first wife, re-marries?

No, although I do know of exceptions that have occurred in times of emergency or necessity.
Atheists have noetic deficiencies.

Agreed.  The rule is no, but there are even at least a few cases of priests who have been divorced and then gotten remarried, and were then ordained.
