Under a Vatican rule, priests are supposed to remain celibate and are not allowed to marry.
But there are a number of people who are fighting that rule.
Ed Minderlein of Marlborough is one of those people. A married priest himself, Minderlein says the celibacy rule hurts the church.
The rule is "denying people of the God-given right that is essential to human nature, the right to companionship and the right to procreate," he told the Portland Press Herald in a story today about priestly celibacy and those who question it.
