Also, would you want the Latin church to change its discipline of mandatory priestly celibacy within the Latin church itself?
it was always a tradition (small t) so I couldn't care less if they kept it, but it seems your Pope is maybe wanting to change that.

Even in the west (West) it wasn't always mandatory, I don't think.

It was enforced surprisingly late, actually, and even afterward was enforced laxly in some areas and periods.
One hides amid pornography, angry music, television that shows the worst of mankind, misanthropic politics, an internet populace led by all the passions: and then one asks, "Where is God?"

I wonder why it is called OrthodoxChristianity.net?
