The membership of the Catholic Church would increase dramatically if that happened.

There will be more to come. Stay tuned!

We need more good bishops like this. We certainly need to support them in prayer...REGULARLY!

We also need to pray consistently for the continued cleansing of our Church, starting with ourselves. ;-)

“Second, the story says that the bishop is “ultra orthodox”. What does the “ultra” mean. Someone is either orthodox or heterodox, what does the modifier “ultra” really indicate about Tobin.”

This paper is attempting to portray the BISHOP as a RADICAL. The corrupt and inept press of today attempts to paint anyone who stands up for traditional moral virtues as RADICAL (although they mean it in a negative sense.)

“...son of a recently heaven-denied murderer,...”

Although I completely understand your sentiment, only God knows where Kennedy is right now.

Good for Bishop Tobin! I’m sure Patrick will ignore him, because he’s just that arrogant that he doesn’t think the rules should apply to him, but he’ll have to answer to God for that.

Maybe in the short run, but I have to believe we'd attract new people of good conscience.

Where are you going to get them? There's only two places, either they come from Independents or converted RATS. We're running out of people and they're importing more illegals.

If everyone who was pro-choce and/or uses contraceptives stayed away from church, their membership would be zip.

No, it wouldn't. There would still be we who are orthodox, but it would certainly thin the liberal herd. ;o)

We would be blessed indeed if all bishops had this much spine.
