As an aside, do you mean permanent deacons in general, or only married deacons? Married deacons I can understand, but in light of the Council of Trent's decree on the reformation of Holy Orders and its desire to restore the diaconate and other orders, I don't see how one can be opposed to permanent deacons in principle, even if you limit it to a Latin Rite perspective. (Even Archbishop Lefebrve is said to have liked the idea of the prmanent diaconate.) At best, I can see why one may argue it's not a priority at the moment.

I was sloppy.  I meant married permanent deacons.  I don't oppose them in the Eastern Rites, though, nor do I oppose married priests in the Eastern Rites, nor Anglican or Orthodox priests who come over and receive a dispensation.  In fact, I think the Eastern Rites have been unfairly stifled in the U.S. with regard to a married priesthood.

I don't think it's the end of the world that we have married permanent deacons in the Latin Rite or that we would continue to do so.  It's 5000x better than EMHC's, etc.  I think, though, it would be better not to.
