Pope Francis shocked many Catholics when he suggested recently that married men could be ordained as priests. The celibate priesthood has been one of the defining characteristics of the Roman Catholic Church for nearly 1,000 years, and many Catholics strongly oppose allowing them to marry. But others argue celibacy is both cruel and theologically unnecessary. Many, including the Pope, note the severe shortage of priests, and say the church may need to evolve to survive.
