We are agreed that chastity in the state to which one is called is a requirement - it isn't just 'not married but once' it is 'faithful to the one wife'.
Baron, out of curiousity (and not being flippant) are there any others who agree with your exegesis on this matter? Over the last 50 years, I've discussed the matter of priestly celibacy (from both sides of the argument) with literally hundreds, of people and you are the only person I've ever met who holds this position.
