Yul Edochie, a Nollywood actor, has suggested it’s only better that catholic priests are allowed to get married, as against the church’s doctrine.
In November 2019, a court in Argentina had sentenced two Catholic priests to more than 40 years in prison after they sexually abused deaf children at a church school.
Cases of this sort had further fueled existing demands that priests be allowed to marry as Pope Francis, the sovereign of the Vatican City state, considered easing some restrictions on celibacy.
On Thursday, Edochie took to his Twitter handle to weigh in on the issue, stating that becoming “older and wiser” has allowed him to see reason in allowing married men to be priests.
“Now that I’m older and wiser, I believe it’s best for Catholic priests to be allowed to get married. Don’t ask me why!” the 38-year-old-wrote.

DON’T ASK ME WHY!
