10[His] disciples said to him, “If that is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry.”
11He answered, “Not all can accept [this] word,* but only those to whom that is granted.
12Some are incapable of marriage because they were born so; some, because they were made so by others; some, because they have renounced marriage* for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Whoever can accept this ought to accept it.” Matthew Ch. 19
32I should like you to be free of anxieties. An unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord.
33But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife,
34and he is divided. An unmarried woman or a virgin is anxious about the things of the Lord, so that she may be holy in both body and spirit. A married woman, on the other hand, is anxious about the things of the world, how she may please her husband. [...]
38So then, the one who marries his virgin does well; the one who does not marry her will do better. 1 Corinthians Ch. 7
The tradition of celibate priests is very important to allow for the utmost importance of shepherding his spiritual family. If he has a biological family, his time and attention is divided (priests must be available all the time for things like giving Last Rites). With a wife and children he must choose between fulfilling his duty as priest, and being a present and supporting father (does he choose to spend more time preparing his homily for Sunday or go catch his son's baseball game?). Also, when Christian persecution happens, priests are to lead by example by giving their lives and continuing their faith without fear. That is infinitely easier to do without familial bonds. Homosexuality occurs due to sexual abuse, lack of a father, or a decedent culture that facilitates unrestrained lust. Jesus, the Saints, Tesla, etc. were all made stronger by choosing to be celibate. Choosing that path does not give rise to homosexual feelings unless you never mastered your lust in the first place, in which case you have no business thinking about the priesthood anyways.
And I counter with:
and1 Timothy 3:1-13 said:Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.
In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.
A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
I've bolded the more relevant parts of those passages.Titus 1:5-9 said:The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you. An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
Being married and with children teaches you stewardship like nothing else does. Church leaders are supposed to be stewards, not missionaries. The leaders send the missionaries, and the duty of a missionary is to be itinerant, which is good and proper for unmarried men whom are fully dedicated to the spread of the Lord's Word. But priests, who are clearly in the duty of being church stewards, function best when they put down good, strong, long roots in their communities so that they may manage it as a spiritual steward. This is why you call them Fathers, is it not - so that they are like a spiritual father of a household?
On the question of priestly duties vs familial duties, one certainly hopes that a Christian society would structure itself around maintaining schedules that permit a priest to manage both the affairs of his family and the affairs of his church. Why do you suggest that this is a problem for priests when it's absolutely never a problem for the vast majority of male occupations? Even the office beta that gets called in at 3 AM to rescue the production server from a catastrophic crash finds ways to make time for his children, and this is in a society that is openly hostile to childrearing! If a society of anti-natalists can make it work for their children, why wouldn't a Christian church?
What you are teaching with respect to celibacy is unbiblical because you are applying it to the wrong people. It is not priests that should be celibate, but monks and missionaries, men of the fringes. Many are called, but few are chosen. It is better to be the few that have the gift to sustain celibacy, because their faith is all the stronger for it, but they should not be made stewards over others, because they themselves have no experience or proof of headship.
Paul's own words in the verses I quoted above even stated that these requirements were made in order to ensure that the Church would not fall into scandal.
You disregard those words at your own risk.
