I'm getting a little sick of hearing from unthinking Catholics that priests can't be taken seriously on matters of marriage and sex, because they simply don't have the requisite "life experiences". Oh okay, so I guess we should start requiring psychiatrists to have been certifiably insane before allowing them to counsel crazy people, or criminal defense attorneys to have been convicted of a crime before giving legal advice to a defendant. If I remember correctly, Jesus was celibate and never married. I'm assuming none of these unthinking Catholics would reject His advice and exhortations.
