But the ordination was approved by the Pope.

Interesting. Too bad this is just an "unique exception". [shaking head] "The ordination was approved by the Pope". How about [i]God[/i] approves of the marriage of a priest and, ummm, that God [i]designed[/i] marriage in the first place. Ridiculous! The heavy burdens of man! How sad. That would be neat if this "unique exception" opened the door for the Catholic church to go back to the authority of the Bible on this issue.
