Jewish believe that a Rabbi is supposed to get married, Catholic Priset are NOT. It boils down to a religious aspect where as a viewer I find unacceptable to use in a soap where they no longer have love stories or soul mates they have hook-ups and insta pairings for a priest to leave under those circumstances IS NOT Acceptable.

cant some priests marry these days? What is the big deal? Its a soap. Haven't priests fallen before? Just don't make him fall for nothing, that would get me really mad!
Minister's can marry not priest - the Catholic Religion does not allow it. As a Catholic I find this whole premise insulting, to have Eric give up his belief's so he can have a relationship with Nicole is low, they are again setting Nicole up as the manipulating bitch to mock. If they had chosen a religion where he as a minister is allowed marriage it would have been fine. But as usual they think it's not a big deal, having a priest shirtless and in a sexual situation. Well sorry not all of us want to see this kind of story depicted, pick on another religion and see the out cry. If they truly wanted Eric and Nicole as a couple they shouldn't have made him a priest.
Priests are human beings too, though, and struggle with these things.
Days did a story like this in a lot of ways with Mike and Robin. She wasn't ordained in any way, but they portrayed her as having very strong Jewish beliefs that she compromised to have a love affair with Mike Horton.
