In my previous post I focused on the bishops' conferences both in the US and the UK. I am pleased to note today's news of bishops on both sides of the Atlantic speaking truth.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has made known his advocacy of "gay" marriage. He received a very direct rebuke from Bishop Joseph Devine of the Diocese of Motherwell in Scotland. From Lifesite News we read that the bishop called Cameron a "disciple of Nero" and wondered out loud how Cameron could expect anyone to trust or respect him. The bishop concluded by saying "we will take no finger-prodding from anyone or any group devoid of moral competence." To that I can only add "AMEN"!
Meanwhile, in the Diocese of Madison (WI), Bishop Robert Morlino has banned two renegade nuns from offering spiritual direction or holding workshops in any of the Catholic churches. Sisters Maureen McDonald and Lynn Lisbeth have been dabbling in new age nonsense and espousing indifferentism. According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Bishop Morlino has banned some others from speaking due to errant teachings - including some men (lest some accuse the bishop of sexism!).
Talk about a breath of fresh air!!
