I don't know. The word technically means "unmarried" so you could be screwing every woman and half the men in your--congregation is not the right word, but it's the one I'm finding in my brain--and technically still be celibate if you weren't married. Obviously, the word has changed meaning in any practical sense. And whatever words they use in Greek and Russian, it's a sure bet that those words have different histories and nuances.
I think I know that to be a Patriarch you have to be celibate. Maybe I should look at wikipedia and learn a little more about the orthodox church.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Reverend Billy's "performances" are pretty damn near church services, in the best sense. And he's married a few couples on the playa, too. My first year out there (2007), I caught his act out by the temple. He was doing his schtick and the line that got the biggest applause was, "...and Jesus Christ, a fellow Burner..." I actually got chills from that because he's exactly right.

I'd love to see a full-blown Catholic mass out there, they've been putting on the best shows for millennia.

Ah the Auto-de-Fe...now those were burners...
And then there's the castrati.
And the little boys...

And they have the nerve to say that they are experts in human rights and dignity.
