When looking at Days as a whole, I find the Ericole story the most natural moving story on the show. I love the pacing of it because typically in Salem, Eric's collar would have been tossed aside 2 months after he returned to town. Then what? This is a story that needs to drag in order to build to a climax (pun intended). So many people complain at how quickly Days attempts to throw a "supercouple" together and when they slow cook a story, many complain that it's dragging. I don't know what the happy medium is but in the middle of this story, I'm a happy viewer.

Yeah i know that days sends a lot of bad messages but thats how i am feeling right now. The vows to God are sacred and should be treated as such so for me i would like him to keep them. I know it wont happen and the show is dragging it out.
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.
BOTH

In regards to this whole Eric thing, my fear of wrong message is not that Eric breaks his vows, but that if and when he does, Nicole is once again going to be blamed for leading him astray and she will get the harlot treatment. Nuff of that. If one more person throws out her porn past............I would love to see Eric rip Sami's head off (or anyone else's) if that is brought up. If they wanted to bring up a lesson, they can throw in Mary Magdalene (although, there is no place in the Bible that said she was a harlot....that was all Hollywood), but it would make for GREAT story.

^^^I think you have a point with Nicole propping Fetch, but I have found it more as Nicole tryingto stop Chloe from making a king sized idiot oit of herself. It's also part of her redemption tour apparently, since she is trying to help her "friend" Daniel.

Eta: I think its possible , but its also possible to enter the clergy and find your true calling is actually in the married life. I worked in a Catholic High School for five years, and two of my coworkers were former sisters in the order that ran the school. One actually married a former priest. There was no prejudice or penalty - they just chose incorrectly and were given an out. I am a practicing Catholic (heck, look at my name! If I weren't my mom would kill me ;). ) and I don't see a problem with it.
I dont see the point of the Nicole redemption tour. I dont think she needs to be redeeemed. She came on as a bad girl and she should stay that way. Her being goody goody and being at the chruch and propping fetch is boring.

Thats cool about the other stuff you said but i think the real story would be if he didnt leave the chruch and stay true vs giving it up then eventually being with Nicole then having everyone turn on her because even if eric says its his choice they will always blame her.
She's always getting blamed for something...why not something that makes her happy?

Anyway, I agree with those who say Eric's concern for Nicole's actions have to do with his growing attraction for her. It had better become obvious soon because his "I'm a Priest, That's Why!" excuse is getting old.
I think it's already obvious. What I would like to know, though, is whether he really is clueless about her feelings for him, or if he's choosing not to see the truth.

I feel like he's a little clueless and a little in denial, about both her feelings and his too. As of now, Eric seems pretty committed to being a priest, so he has lots of reasons for being in denial about their connection. It's easier for him to be oblivious than to acknowledge feelings that will complicate his life so much.

Nicole's past (porn and now her childless state) is always fodder for these talentless hacks who can't find any better way to tell their stories. I don't care if you want to rub her past in her face but use something that's deserved and doesn't chaff me as a viewer because it't too heartless and treated so nonchalantly and very callously while they are at it.

It's not like this would be the first time a soap has had a priest leave the priesthood for a woman. That would be The Secret Storm all the way back in the late 1960s. And it was QUITE scandalous for its day.
