Outspoken Archbishop

The week's news at a glance.

Rome

Father Emmanuel Milingo called on the Catholic Church this week to allow priests to marry. Milingo, a former archbishop from Zambia, was nearly excommunicated in 2001, after he was married to a woman in a mass wedding conducted by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, a cult leader. After Milingo agreed to renounce the marriage, the Vatican relieved him of his post and sent him to live in an abbey near Rome. Five years later, Milingo is again speaking out against mandatory celibacy for priests. Priests who fall in love, he said, “have been driven to become almost mental cases.” The Vatican is considering disciplinary measures.
