Home Browse Books Book details, Celibacy in Crisis: A Secret World Revisited. For centuries the "secret world" of clerical sexuality has been securely closed off from public scrutiny, both within and beyond the Roman Catholic Church. By A. W. Richard Sipe. If lapses from the code of celibate conduct came occasionally to public notice, church officials quickly dismissed them as aberrations, the priests in question were quietly reassigned, and the civil authorities (if they had an interest in the matter) were effectively neutralized.

  • This book was very helpful in my understanding of the current crisis in Catholic church. I've read several of his books, and his balanced approach is something I really like. He says something like his data and the information he draws from it, can be used to support different viewpoints, meaning his approach is not one-sided.

  • A must read book.Gives information that enlightens anyone about why certain problems in the Church exist and how knowledge of these problems can help to correct evils that we are not aware of.

  • Excellent service. Condition of the book is perfect. I am impressed. Thank you so very much.

  • Why would any normal heterosexual man/woman enter religious life, when they are fully aware that Celibacy is the main rule of order? Aren’t most normal adult heterosexual men/women sex sexually active?

  • This is not a new book, and since its publication the author has been on TV a number of times, bringing only further seriousness to his arguments. But contextually one can look at this book as a medicinal corrective for the high-sugar fantasies of Sr. Mary Ann Walsh who is the spokesperson for the Catholic Bishop in this country. The author quotes her from a TV appearance saying that 99.44% of priests keep their celibate vows. Well, this is such a complete fantasy, that one only needs statistical averages to debunk it. Further, those with any kind of personal knowledge of such affairs know that such has about as much chance of being true as that the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is filled with inspiring works of art. Significantly, it really does boil down to an aesthetic judgment in some ways. For if one includes the "sin of Onan" in the calculation in the assessment of clerical celibacy then we are talking of a very approximate sense of things, like the sfumato of Da Vinci or the indistinctness of the impressionists. In this ambit the "children's books" aesthetic of the the art of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception becomes a curious and telling cultural marker, and emblem of the American Church, because it is "America's Catholic Church". The bizzarely adolescent look of the art speaks of the first surprised and jejune simplicity of prevarication that comes in explaining to mama that first wet dream. From a mature adult perspective, and leaving aside the sanctity of personal religious conviction for a moment, it appears as the biggest pile of nonsense one can conceive of. Indeed, it takes a lot to counter Sr. Mary Ann's special romper room.

  • Richard Sipe, a former Roman Catholic priest, blows the lid off of the secret world of so-called celibacy in the US Catholic church. This tome brings you right up to date on how the celibacy system is used by a significant number of priests to sexually abuse minors and the cover-up that follows is well documented. The current scandals in the Boston and Los Angeles Arch Dioceses are exposed in shocking detail. This is a book of facts weened from the interviews of over 1,500 sexually active priests that scared me half to death. I was quite shaken after reading it. [...]
