The guy takes Jesus into his mouth multiple times a week.  What other relationship status covers that?

He wouldn't be the first one to nail Jesus.

For fark's sake, just let priests get married already. The celibacy thing is bullshiat unsupported by scripture anyway.

"And last year, the pope accepted the resignation of French Roman Catholic Cardinal Philippe Barbarin..."

As God as my witness: I refuse to be the only one to get this stuck in my head.

He's married to Jesus, and you what happens if Jesus finds out. That's right, six more weeks of winter.

He has a consensual relationship with an adult woman, and is drummed out. Meanwhile, priests who raped children had their jobs protected for years.

"It's not gay!"

Paris Archbishop Michel Aupetit said in a statement Thursday that he offered to step down "to preserve the diocese from the division that suspicion and loss of trust are continuing to provoke."

The loss of trust isn't coming from consensual relationships with adult women.

Being French, there's probably a jealous mistress, too.

 "It's complicated" is just a sign the kid has turned 18.

I'd take a vow of pottery instead.

Meh, my godfather was the Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Canada.  One of the early social activists who championed workers and women in the church.  Don't disparage all clergy.  Good man.

Just a note for the jackass that thought this was funny.  If you live in North America he did more for your rights than you will ever stand up and be counted for.

Hes in an ethically polyamorous committed platonic partnership with God. Seeing Jesus on the side but its ok because Jesus is.so God.

This is why bishops move diagonally, not straight or sideways. They're kinky like that

I don't really believe the latter.

I believe that priests sexually abusing children is a logical outcome from combining enforced celibacy with the access to and power that priests hold over children, topped off by the Church's belief it is superior to the government.

I wonder what he is trying to hide by resigning like this to avoid further scrutiny.

But then they would be back to protesting sending parishioners out to die in a Crusade!
