Donatism was NOT about requiring the priests to be "perfect", and it is embarrassing that you would try to draw an Equivalence this False.Donatism was the statement that Priests / Bishops who had committed APOSTASY, denied Christ in public and defiled the Scripture were no longer fit or mete to have or be an Authority in the Church.
