I have to admit the idea of married ex-priests returning to the priesthood gives me the willies. The few ex-priests I personally know all left during the mass exodus shortly after the Vatican Council. They are the Peter Pans of Catholicism. Though they’ve grown old, they have never grown up. I suspect that they suffer from The Skimpole Syndrome:Childhood Unlimited. Re-admitting these men to service in the priesthood would only exacerbate the problem of dissent and indifferentism. I know that it isn’t fair to generalize but my mind still boggles at the possibility.
