“All conditions for admission to the priesthood are up for discussion”

“All conditions for admission [to the priesthood] are up for discussion”

[Austrian theologian “lets the cat out of the bag”? “All conditions” including “one’s level of education, sex, and one’s form of living”; i.e., theologically and pastorally educated (seminary-trained) or not, male or female, hetero- or homosexual, celibate or married (opposite- or same-sex), chaste or fornicating/adulterating?]

From Cardinal Marx Encourages Viri Probati Debate; Priest Predicts Pope Will Permit Married Priests

According the German Catholic newspaper Die Tagespost,

At the fall assembly of the Bavarian Regional Committee of Catholics, the Viennese pastoral theologian, Paul Zulehner, [who co-authored books with South African Bishop emeritus Fritz Lobinger, a promoter of married priests as well as of ordaining women to the priesthood, and whom in 2015 Pope Francis recommended to the German bishops during their ad limina visit in Rome that they read his books, and also who was one of the two priests who launched, in response to the Filial Correction of Pope Francis concerning Amoris Laetitia, the Pro Pope Francis counter-initiative] showed himself convinced that Pope Francis will admit new forms of the priesthood. “We will still experience it, if somebody does not shoot or poison the pope,” he said. In his eyes, it is now important to put pressures on the local bishops. Zulehner claimed that all conditions for admission [to the priesthood] are up for discussion, to include one’s level of education, sex, and one’s form of living [i.e., one’s “state in life”].
