***Nienstedt “didn’t seem to be on our level,” she said.***
He’s not supposed to be on your level, you idiot. The church is not a club. You don’t join it and then try to change the rules.
Sounds like Nienstedt was appointed to clean up the mess these people have made.
And her feelings were hurt because the Good Bishop didn’t single out one group of Catholics. He didn’t “drop by the house”.
I have a problem in any area or parish when the big shots push their weight around. We are all equal.
A lot of cafeteria Catholics are worried that Nienstedt is about to close the cafeteria.
