This Archbishop Wants Married Priests in Indigenous Communities

Soft racism of low expectations.

August 16, 2023  0

Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane, Australia, recently came out in support of allowing married men from Aboriginal communities to become Catholic priests in the Roman rite — making an exception to the long-standing traditional discipline of priestly celibacy. In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Simon Rafe and Trey Brock discuss how Abp. Coleridge's comments could be seen as condescending toward people of indigenous descent. They also make some theological and practical arguments in defense of priestly celibacy.
