Newly appointed Bishop Josef Marketz of Gurk-Klagenfurt, Austria, has declared that he is "in favour of abolishing priestly celibacy."
In an interview with the Kleine Zeitung (December 7) he explain that he is not against celibacy "because every man absolutely needs a woman next to him".
But: "I see the loneliness of many old priests whose own family is often no longer there."
For Marketz, there are many reasons to get rid of priestly celibacy.

The worst enemies of the Church have always been and will always be, her own.
Very few love the priests because they do not act like true priests much less men. Priests have been neutered by the enemy and many priests shouldn't be priests due to unnatural vices. The subversive enemy infiltrators continue to attack the priesthood leading priests into a dark oblivion.
