God has not told me to get married- Fr Musaala

Anthony Musaala

Controversial catholic priest Fr Anthony Musaala says he has not yet got the feeling of getting married.

Musaala was suspended from church three years for his controversial writing urging priests to take wives instead of having sex women secretly.

Appearing on NBS TV Tuesday, Musaala said one of the most painful things is not being valued by the Church despite dedicating his 22 years to it.

“That was devastating. I’m on the journey to Orthodoxy. I am not there yet. I am still learning. The journey has opened my eyes.”

Asked about his chances on taking a wife, Musaala said God has not yet spoken to him about it.

“God has not told me to get married. I have not got that feeling.”

He added: “I am 60 years old. I don’t have the software of living with another person.”

In the Orthodox church, Musaala is opting for celibacy.

The priest says he has many fans and friends “if some people cease being my friends, there is nothing I can do about that”.

Says he has also learned Musaala a lot from other denominations but feels joining any other than Orthodox would leave him like a fish out of water.

“I’m writing a book. I have been composing and I have finished another album but I believe my work and gifts need to find a home.”

Musaala who was suspended for a missive that leaked to the press said he never leaked it.

“Three years on, it’s uncertain what the Church’s next move is. I don’t feel that I did anything to provoke my dismissal. And I am not saying I am not without blame.”

Asked about gays in church, the priest said gay people should be treated with compassion, love and sensitivity, like all sinners, according to the Catechism of the Church.

As per the Church, marriage is between a man and a woman; homosexuality is seen as a disorder.
