In response to one of the points made above:

Married priests do not hear the confession of their wives or children.

Which married priests? I have seen this done among the Russian Orthodox diaspora.

Keep it up. You'll wake up one day and find yourself in a church that calls itself Catholic but is Protestant.

We've been there for decades.

The (Catholic) Code of Canons for the Eastern Churches does not address the issue, but my pastor says it is just not done.  His wife and children go to a neighboring Latin parish for confession.

I suppose Im in the minority, but whats new? While recognizing the superiority of celibacy (since that fact is scripturally established by Paul), I am not averse to ordaining married men. Trad or not, the faithful Catholic married men I know are consistently less homosexual seeming than the bulk of priests (sadly, trad or not). The historical evidence for continency of married priests is scant (exluding, naturally, the consistently celibate episcopate in the East and West).

As I pointed out, if the West changes its discipline, it's the opening wedge. Next it's allowing priests to marry, a married Episcopate, and calls for 'priestesses'.
