Carl Sagan Quote - Celibate Clergy
Whilst watching some old interviews with a few of the most well know atheists, I came across this quote from Carl Sagan. I immediately got some feedback from my followers, a couple of whom, were not comfortable with ANY form of sexual suppression (glenndale69 and jungleranger). I would have to agree and certainly don't think that a celibate priesthood leads to a healthy environment, a belief which is born out to be well-founded, based on the number of scandals plaguing the Catholic Church in particular!
I suspect that Carl was being very much tongue-in-cheek when he made this quote and can completely understand the sentiment...
