That is understandable. But he couldnt have joined the priest hood for the wrong reasons but then he found his true calling. That does happen a lot. You start out doing something unexpected and you realize its what you should have been doing all along.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
So think about Maria Von Trapp. Wouldn't it be worse if he broke his vows by having a sexual relationship with Nicole WHILE being a priest? Maria Von Trapp hadn't taken her vows, but she did discover she was meant for something else. I'm sure it happens more than you think. If (and I mean in real life), he was meant for something else, then the vows don't mean much, do they? Even taking a vow can be a mistake. Look at the divorce rate!
I don't think he's meant to have taken them lightly, BUT many people take vows like this in the emotion of the moment.
That being said, if they showed him serving God in another capacity (such as continuing with the prisoner program or something), that would be fine.
What am I saying? This IS a soap. If someone gets a wrong message about this, they shouldn't be watching a soap. There are a TON of wrong messages sent in a soap!
Are we talking about the real Maria Von Trap or the Hollywood romanticize verison of it.
I agree you shouldnt look to soaps to send a message. I just in my preference prefer he stays the way he is.
While I agree it would be nice to see a young man of faith choose and stay in the priesthood, it was kind of already put out there that Eric did not choose his vocation for the right reasons. He did it out of guilt, as if he needs to replace the priest who was killed due to his inaction. There was an outside element there that had nothing to do with a true calling from God. People do this, and that's why the church gives you an out.
