    Default Translation of the word "priest"

    Hello, I was wondering if there were multiple ways of saying the word "priest" in spanish. I know of "padre" and I found another on altavista's babelfish translator that is "sacerdote". Are here any other words that mean "priest".

    Thank you
    --J

    pastor, capellán, sacerdote, clérigo, párroco, vicario, abate
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    In Argentina catholics say:
    "Padre" when talking to him.
    Ex. Padre, May I have a word with you?
    "Sacerdote" when talking about him especially in a formal context, ex in a newspaper's article.
    "el Cura" when talking about him in an informal context, ex. talking with friends about him, you may refer to him as "el cura"

    Hope it helps!
