The Catholic Church imposes strict restrictions on those who serve her. Unlike monks, priests do not swear chastity, but must be celibate, so they must be absolutely temperate. However, many priests have a positive sexual orientation and live a life of love, heterosexuality, or homosexuality. The pastor and their relatives have agreed to testify about their often secret and forbidden double life.
In this documentary, Alexandra Renard (Alexandra Renard) and Georges Yazbeck (Georges Yazbeck) go to meet the loving priest, they hope that the institution will allow them to fully enjoy the romance in broad daylight , While being able to maintain his priesthood.
Whether they are a young priest in the making, or a priest in a secret couple, or fall in love with a woman or a man, they all agree to testify for their celibacy.
About the Impossibility of Love in the Church
Those who took the steps of priestly unfaithfulness discussed their difficulties in living in “sin” and the knowledge that the happiness of love is the joy of two people or a family, because some people have children.
Their companions also talked about their forbidden and secret lives with a church member for many years.
Terrible secrecy culture
In France, most clergy are sexually active and half of them are said to be homosexual, which constitutes a double punishment for many clergy.
Unlike the Orthodox Church or the Anglican Church, the Latin Catholic Church has mandated priests to be celibate since the 12th century. A doctrine that leaves room for self-evident, mutual selves and a terrible culture of secrecy.
This centuries-old culture is now being questioned because it is particularly helpful in “covering up” the sexual abuse of minors and adults in the church.
