married priests

We cannot approve the law of celibacy put forth by our opponents because it clashes with divine and natural law and conflicts with the very decrees of councils. It obviously endangers religion and morality, for it produces endless scandals, sins, and the corruption of public morals. Our other controversies call for some theological discussion, but in this one the situation is so clear that no discussion is necessary, only the judgment of any honest and God-fearing man.
Apology XXIII.6
