Celibacy was not a part of church doctrine either. Yet it is still practiced...

Why?

That's very easy for an enlightened, Twenty-First Century, developed-nation Catholic to say, but to the ignorant Third World masses -- who incidentally are the Vatican's target audience and whose babies have a nasty tendency to die -- this is critical and potentially heart-wrenching stuff.

Celibacy is a discipline in the church, not a theological theory. And are we supposed to promote a non-doctrine because someone's feelings might be hurt? We believe, as we always have, that the fate of unbaptized babies is in the hands of an infinitely merciful God.
