Catholic priests should be allowed to get married-Yul Edochie | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Outspoken actor, Yul Edochie has revealed that catholic priests should be allowed to get married, as against the church’s doctrine.

Recall that back in November 2019, a court in Argentina sentenced two Catholic priests to more than 40 years in prison after they sexually abused deaf children at a church school.

On Thursday, Edochie took to his Twitter handle to weigh in on the issue, stating that becoming “older and wiser” has allowed him to see reason in allowing married men to be priests.

“Now that I’m older and wiser, I believe it’s best for Catholic priests to be allowed to get married. Don’t ask me why!” the 38-year-old-wrote.

He had earlier criticized the practice of sex-for-movie roles, which he claimed has wrecked men in Nigeria’s film industry, having earlier claimed that he has a calling to serve God.

In June 2019, Edochie  noted that he “repented,” after narrating how he “miraculously” escaped death in a “ghastly auto crash.”

  1. Pls, leave religion alone & face politics.

  2. Haha. Are you aspiring to become a married priest? You can become that in so many Christian denomination brother. I agree there are so many Catholic priest who are indulging in sexual activity. But remember that a lot sees priesthood as a means of survival and not really called. Anyway, concentrate in your movies and business and let the church decide

  3. You are just seeking for relevance. Face your life and trashy acting. Religion is quite different from Nollywood Mr Jack of all trades.
