Many do not believe Peter ever went to Rome let alone become Pope but that is a different matter. Can he get married according to who? His religion may forbid it but the Word of God does not so I guess it is his choice. If he wishes to retain his position (which I am sure he does) he cannot get married other than that I know of no reason.
It is true that Peter never did go to Rome, he wasn't too fond of the gentiles. I really don't know why they think Peter created the catholic church and being the first pope lol.. Prophet Daniel talks about a certain corrupted roman empire in his prophecies ehem that is supposed to be the last one before the end
I can't say that not marrying is wrong because it's amazing to live for Christ without marriage
but to deny them marriage, now that's wrong!! they made too many laws for their own good. Although it is not bad, it's wrong to create a law and make its followers believe that it's from God while it is not!
Hello, Why not marry (according to Catholic)? Ans -To fulfill the law of celibacy/singlehood as drafted by the Vatican Council of the Church, to evidently indicate that you are all concerned about conducting Masses, and apparently erase any doubt of loving a wife or engaging in sex, thus treating it trivial, to the eyes of the public. And of course while a number of them are going down six ft as a result of AIDS. -Maybe some blood transfusion of an infected individual. Oh! A common transfusion!!
It makes me sad, to have a people fill in well the Words of Christ. A move to burden other peoples' lives with buggage that none of them is able or willing to carry. =Charles
