Two gals waiting for the guy in their lives to return. Trips are hard on significant others and families when they must be apart for a while.

I have to call shenanigans on this one. From what you've described during your livesteams, there's no way Feep would mope that quietly.

You can't shut Feep out of the bedroom for a few hours without screams of woe and gifts of squeeky mousie. (The same mousie over and over.)

Having listened to you two talk about this during your recent Livestream, I found this comic really quite touching. Thank you for sharing this moment.

AAARgh! Voting is closed!
Gen, I am so sorry. In the last few months, I discovered YouTube comedy, in a big way, including that of a few people with very few fans, people who also appreciate my being a fan.

And I finally started getting paid at work (So I'll soon be ordering volume 3 for Christmas gifts.), and this is the first time in months when I've remembered to visit Belfry.com.

So I missed voting for you. I think you're a winner, anyway, but I'm sure you'd still like an Ursa Major. I'll try to stay in touch, more. And thanks for your Easter message. It read a bit like the story of my life, so far, and yet it is encouraging. Thanks.

I thought catholic priests weren't allowed to get married. I grant they haven't excommunicated anyone in a while but...

Re: ???
One, they're Anglican. Two, there is no rule saying an already married man has to divorce in order to enter seminary.

That was more or less my assumption until she used "for us catholics" in the comic. And, as I recall from my childhood, the rule was that a married man had to be widowed and any children grown. Divorce was not an acceptable practice.

Re: ???
I'm not a theologian, but recently the Catholic and Anglican churches have apparently agreed to set aside differences and join. So the "they're" is technically correct since it can stand for "they were." ;)

A married Anglican is allowed to become ordained and, if I understand the situation correctly, one of the terms the Catholic church has agreed to as part of the merger is that the married ordained may stay married and ordained.

Re: ???
found this after a quick google search:

"5. Can married men become priests?

Yes, the Church does sometimes permit married men to become priests. The Catholic Church, in the East, regularly permits some married men to become priests. However, once ordained, an unmarried man is not allowed to seek a wife or to marry. Furthermore, even in the East, most priests are and must be celibate.

In the West, that is, in the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, the ordinary path to the priesthood is through celibacy and chastity, not by way of marriage. There are today some married priests in the Latin Rite. Some of these had been married Anglican ministers. When they and most of their congregation converted to the Catholic faith, these married men were permitted to be ordained as Catholic priests and to continue their married life and their ministry. Furthermore, when all the Protestant Churches repent and unite with the Catholic Church (in the early 2020's), many married Protestant ministers will also convert and will become married Catholic priests.

Married men are sometimes permitted to become priests because it is fitting to advance from a lower calling to a higher calling. But even better still is the man who begins with the higher calling and perseveres in it."
