    Another Methodist PK here. I totally understand having to live up to others' expecations, and being preached to at home. If my gay experience hadn't taught me that repression of one's sexuality is so harmful, I would advocate celibacy for members of the clergy of all denominations.

    My first live-in boyfriend was a preacher's kid.

    We broke up after 3.5 years because he'd become a serious alcoholic...even woke up drinking.

    Now he's in jail for life on the three-strikes-you're-out law.

    wow what an incredibly derpressing series of events.

    its such a bleak and fearful environment to raise a child, it cant be condusive to a healthy world view as an adult. (dogmatic religious views obviously not alcoholism and life imprisonment, altough im sure the same thing could apply)

    The pressures in a preacher's household is very difficult. I wonder if there isn't some wisdom to the Catholic practice of celibacy for those in ministry.

    Unless one is keenly aware of how to raise a child in such a situation, it might not be a good idea, but then, not all children turn out negatively. While some may have their rebellious streaks, some actually mature through that period and live amazing lives. Franklin Graham is one very visible example.
