Hence 'supposedly'.
Like the blinged up churches the supposedly celibate priesthood was just another way of convincing the peasants that the god squad was onto something bigger and beyond their daily life of eating raw potatoes and shagging toothless crones.

from what I have read they spend as much time drinking shagging and gambling for there to be no doubt in their parishioners minds what they got up to.. thing is the pub, linked to every church, the English where well known as the worst drunks in Europe even back in the day, and the Church was mostly to blame, but they also drank a fair bit to....

Ahh..
Opie is talking about the French, a predominately catholic people and I was following his lead.

Now if you want to talk about the heathens across the channel...

Not according to most of the early documents, lots of shagging and sex.. especially when the monks and nuns shared the same buildings.. I have seem some that would make the latest erotica blush..

you mean they would like pee on each other?

Not sure on that one.... the English vices are somewhat different, the Winchester Geese is one vice ;)

You need to read Chaucer if you haven't already. I think you'd like him

They are meant to be Catholics, as in Chaucer's Canterbury tales with the priests preferring "pricking and hunting of the hares" to reading the bible.. and that was pretty much true across Europe, so another way of looking at it, the naughtier the priests the prettier the building needed to be to make up for it..

They were le bored and had nothing better to le do.

The priesthood was supposedly celibate so that explains the boredom.

Oh, so you have read old Geoff?
Thought as much.
Benny Hill does the church circa 1350.

There is a Bedouin saying that I choose not to recall right now.

Who? The peasants?
They believe what they're told.
True then and true now.
