Thrice-married GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on why he's a politician, not a priest: "I wasn't ready to make that commitment. And frankly, [in] the Catholic Church, the vow of celibacy was something I wasn't sure I could keep ... Probably if I had been an Episcopalian or a Methodist or a Lutheran, I probably would have entered the seminary ... if there was an option to have a married priesthood or a married ministry."
