Who appointed the bishop in the photo?
The "bishop" in the photo is actually Roger Cardinal Mahony, appointed by Archbishop Jadot - Still Proud Of Bishops He Gave U.S.
The archbishop just turned 96. He entertained the dream of one day seeing Vatican Council III convened, and moving the Catholic Church in a totally modern direction. To do that would entail moving his players up the ranks and into the College of Cardinals. He failed to factor in the Holy Spirit. His plan backfired. In the meantime, we are stuck with "his" bishops, until they retire.

It appears that wrong people were appointed all the way up the line!
Pope appoints cardinals who then appoints bishops...you would think that some reflections and care would be taken before these nasty things occurred.

I respectfully disagree. He was appointed by the Pope. This other fellow may have given him a recommendation. But the Pope I believe still bottom lines all episcopal appointments in the RCC.
