I wish him good luck, and don't blame him at all for leaving the priesthood.

IMO, to ask man, especially a young man to take a life long vow of celibacy defies the inherent nature of a man.

Aside from that, no way could I remain a priest in light of all the pedophilia crimes in the Catholic Church and the decades and decades of cover ups and reassigning pedophile priests.

I believe Father John (even if he won't say it) has lost his faith and belief in the church hierarchy  -- while keeping is faith and belief in God.

Martin Luther felt this way too...hence the formation of Protestantism.

I think he must have had a very tough time explaining what the Pope has been saying. I know I would.

The Pope seems disconnected from reality and church teachings.

I believe that may have had a lot to do with his desire to quit.

And yet thousands pull it off. It's not as if he were the first to take a vow of celibacy.

I served with a guy who tried to be a priest but could not take it.

He used to say, "In the Seminary your hand was your best friend".  Grin
