Professor 'Tina Beattie. She repeats Peter Stanford's insulting and bigoted comments and adds in a few herself. If a celibate priest, or any man had written them they would cause serious concern and they would be unlikely to hold on to their position in the areas of Catholic influence that she fills.
She does however raise one point with which she beats the Ordinariate -and therefore the Pope- that is worth discussing here, the issue of celibacy. Here she is favour of it. Proportionately the number of married clergy, former Anglicans, is most probably the highest in England and Wales than anywhere else in the world but it is still a small number, in some dioceses it almost reaches 7%, in most it is considerably less and growing less as some of those who came into communion 20 years ago are retiring or dying.
As a celibate priest I have no problem with the Church's generosity to these men, they are often exceptional priests and their married state is an exception to the normal rule of celibacy in the Western Church. When their wives die they are bound to celibacy. Their ordination is by special dispensation of the Holy See. There is great deal of difference in their state and that of a celibate priest who chooses to leave the priesthood in order to marry.
The Ordinariate is slightly different, the approach to celibacy resembles that of Oriental Rite Catholics. The discipline of celibacy is important but not as important as Communion with Christ in His Church and the salvation of souls. It is out of paternal charity, based on salvation, that the Holy Father welcomes groups of former Anglicans. In this exceptional situation for an exceptional group, which is likely always to be small, the Holy See is experimenting with optional celibacy. Under other circumstances this experiment would be welcomed by 'Tina and her ilk but these are obviously for her the wrong kind of non-celibates.
