Since I believe Jesus was a human being, I think he had the same desire for sexual gratification all animals have. Was he masochistic enough to deny himself that gratification? I think he might have been. Look where he ended up.

I have never quite understood celibacy, nor do I understand lint. Insofar as Jesus having sex, and based upon my very strict upbringing, I would say, no. Based upon what I feel now, I haven't really thought about it, truthfully. The message is what is important. Jesus, the man, showed two very powerful emotions--sadness, when he wept, anger--when he actually scourged the money lenders in the temple. Compassion is the seat of Christianity, and in that lies the real hope of the world.

Husker, that was an interesting link to the Abuzz discussion.

Celibacy, Letty, is not intended for the laymen: it is for the priests and monks that are supposed to devote all their life to God, that replaces for them family.

And how many priests, monks and NUNS - remember them? - manage it, Steissd?

I heard a discussion of this very issue on the radio the other day, and there had been a survey amongst priests about their celibacy - not sur ewhich coutry it was done in - from memory, 50% reported being in a sexual relationship at the time the survey was taken.

It really is too much to ask, I agree dlowan. Service to God or man does not suffer through masochistic surrender. Suffering is not redemptive. Service is. A strong, well gratified, rewarded person is in a much better position to serve than one who is struggling daily with self sacrifice.

Well, jokes about Savior of the mankind are somewhat risky: they may be on the brink of blasphemy. Let us find some other subject for jokes: lawyers, blondes, Saddam, French Army and the like.

Dlowan, it is very sad to hear that people that are supposed to bring the words of God to the world are sinners themselves. Well, human beings are not perfect, and the clergymen, monks and nuns are humans, not the Angels...
