Good Question: In an interview with cruxnow.com, Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze has said about himself: "By African standards, I'm not conservative, I'm normal." He added: "That word, ‘conservative,’ is understood by people in different ways. Suppose you say that when we did arithmetic, we learned that 2 +2 = 4. It’s still the same, so am I then ‘conservative’ for saying so?” Catholic: Asked whether the Church will see an African pope any time soon, Cardinal Arinze answered: "I don’t think it’s relevant where the pope comes from. What matters is that he’s a Catholic!”
Wrong Friends: The Blog La Cigüeña de la Torre, writes on his famous blog: "One of the greatest concerns raised by this pontificate is the enthusiasm it arouses among declared enemies of the Church."
Celibacy: Father Joshua Whitfield, a former Anglican parson who was ordained a Catholic priest, is married and has four children. Whitfield wrote a commentary for The Dallas Morning News entitled: "I'm a married Catholic priest who thinks priests shouldn't get married." In the article he writes: "You might be surprised to know most married Catholic priests are staunch advocates of clerical celibacy."
