    [h=1]Calif. Catholic bishop resigns, says he has 2 kids[/h][​IMG]AP – 11 hrs ago






    VATICAN CITY (AP) — The pope has accepted the early resignation of a Los Angeles bishop who recently acknowledged being the father of two teenagers.
    Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Zavala, 60, resigned Wednesday under the code of canon law that lets bishops step down earlier than the normal retirement age of 75 if they're sick or for some other reason that makes them unfit for office.
    In a letter to the faithful, Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez said Zavala had told him in December that he had two children who lived with their mother in a different state. Zavala subsequently submitted his resignation to the pope.
    The archdiocese has offered spiritual and financial aid to help the children with college costs, Gomez said in the letter posted on the blog of the Catholic News Service of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
    Roman Catholic priests are required to be celibate, though Eastern rite priests can be married and married Anglican priests who convert can become Catholic priests. The celibacy requirement is often blamed for discouraging many men who would otherwise consider the priesthood.
    Also Wednesday, Pope Benedict XVI named Monsignor Cirilio Flores to eventually take over the San Diego diocese when Bishop Robert Brom retires.
    In 2007, Brom oversaw a $198.1 million settlement with 144 people who said they were sexually abused by priests, at the time the second-largest abuse settlement since the scandal broke out in the United States in 2002.

    Issue hapa ya kukatazwa kuoa kwa hawa Bishop ni kutoka ktk Bible au mahala pengine?

    Kuna insider mmoja aliniambia issue moja kubwa ya Catholic Church kuwazuia hawa Bishop kutokuoa ni kwa sababu ya utajiri wa Catholic Church usiende kwa watoto au mke wa hawa Bishop iwapo kifo au kujiuzuru kwa hawa Bishops kitatokea. Ndiyo maana hii issue ya kutokuoa imewekwa.

    By the way, ktk kuwa na moral leaders, hawa Bishop, Nuns wataweza kufanya kazi zao vizuri zaid iwapo watakuwa na familia zao as normal human being.
