President Calls Clerical Celibacy Wrong, Supports Same Sex Marriages
Costa Rican president Oscar Arias today called the doctrine of celibacy of Latin Catholic priests wrong and against nature.
Arias said that he hopes that clerical celibacy will be changed, optimistic that the 2.000 year religion will correct the error.
During the mid day remarks, the prez also expressed of being in favour of same sex marriage.
"We are made as we are. A young boy (or girl) does not ask if he or she will grow up gay or straight", said Arias
Gay marriages in Costa Rica still need the approval of the legislative assembly.
