Vatican formally opens debate on married priests for Amazon

Vatican formally opens debate on married priests for Amazon The Vatican has formally opened debate on letting married men be ordained as priests in remote parts of the Amazon where priests are so few that Catholics can go weeks or months without attending a Mass. The proposal was in a working document released Monday for an October meeting of South American bishops on the Amazon. The document, prepared by the Vatican based on input from the region, affirmed that celibacy is a gift for the church.

The NHTSA has opened a preliminary evaluation into the Subaru Forester after receiving multiple complaints about the vehicle's airbag sensor. In total, the NHTSA document dated Aug. 6 claims the agency has received 51 complaints so far.

Currently, the investigation covers 553,692 Foresters from the 2016 to 2018 model years, though it's only an estimated number so far. Per the document, owners have complained of the occupant detection system failing to turn on the front-passenger airbag when the seat is occupied. Further the document included reports of the SRS light illuminating in the dashboard.

Of course, if the airbag fails to deploy in the event of a crash, there's a increased risk of injury. Roadshow reached out to Subaru for comment on the investigation but the automaker did not immediately respond. Per the NHTSA document, the agency has not received any reports of crashes, fires, injuries or deaths involving the alleged problem. It's unclear at this time if Subaru has received any reports, but we will update this story should Subaru respond to our request.
