    Celibacy and the Catholic Church

    I believe it is only a matter of time until the Catholic Church adopts an end to celibacy position. This will have to happen for that institution to survive with all the dust being created from the sexual turmoil they find themselves in.

    This IMO will make it all the more appealing for mainline protestant churches to get in bed with the whore and homogenize most of Western Christianity as well as the Eastern Orthodox crowd.

    With Federal Vision, the Anglican/Episcopal's and the Lutherans, this could generate alliances where none previously existed.

    Maybe they will take a page from the Mormon book & teach successful marriage in this life as a conditional prerequisite to everlasting sex in the hereafter!

    The Pope will not relinquish any of the essential marks of the Antichrist. However, he may be forced to relax his devilish doctrines somewhat (1 Tim 4:1-3) because of various scandals within the Roman Church and in order to extend his dominion over Protestants. Eastern Catholics and Protestant ministers who convert are already permitted wives. More exceptions are likely. However, a stigma will remain that will prevent any married priests from achieving high office within the popish church.

    I don't think it will ever happen.
