Roman Catholicism in this fictional world is similar to our world, with a few key differences. Asherah was a female deity that was worshiped in the ancient world. She appears in the bible as a false god, and her followers were often persecuted. However, in other interpretations, she is shown to be the wife of Yahweh, who happens to be the god of two religions known as Christianity and Judaism.
In this world, instead of Asherah being declared a false god, she is embraced by catholic doctrine as co-creator of the universe and wife of God. She and Yahweh both created humanity as their children, the angels, etc, and is worshiped along with her husband. However, there is a problem here.
Priests of the Roman Catholic faith are called to rise above the desires of normal men, giving up all hope of starting a family. This means not being able to take a wife or have kids. The purpose of this is to avoid distraction, so that they could nobly dedicate their lives completely to God's service and spreading his message.
I want priests in this world to hold themselves to the same vows of celibacy that they normally take. However, with the inclusion of Asherah as God's wife, it becomes harder to justify it. How can I maintain priestly celibacy rules when Christianity has dual gods?
