Actually, if Christ had been married, it probably would have been revealed and this information would go a long way towards bringing the Church and the Jews together. Remember, Christ's apostles called him Teacher or Rabbi. It is customary for Rabbis to be MARRIED. To be unmarried raises questions and doubts about Chirst's status as a Rabbi. It has been conjectured, incidentally, that the wedding at Cannan, where Christ performed the miracle of turning wine into water was Christ's OWN wedding -- perhaps to Mary Magdalene herself. And as far as the question of celebacy, this was not originally part of the Church. There were married priests until the middle ages. An order for celebacy was instituted to eliminate the sin of simony and nepotism. Early priests and bishops, rather than caring selflessly for their flocks would be more concerned with their own families and would, of course, show great favoritism for their sons. This was a change that came after Martin Luthor brought this injustice to light.
TextThe fact that they were not married would be something the church would not want known and also the fact that she held a higher position as a disciple than the male disciples would wreck all this stuff that the women can't be priests and also the idea of celebacy for priests as well as nuns, plus it would place questions on the importance of marriage.
