Why many priests are no more likely to encourage boys to become priests than they are to encourage them to smoke cigarettes

This post on the since-deleted weblog of Fr. Paul Stanosz of St. James Church in Franklin includes an unintended answer to his own question.

It's like saying the Prussians were war-obsessed, but so are the Quakers.
