I’m an East Coaster and didn’t know much about Niederauer, but the more I read the more repulsed I am. This bishop has a LOOOONG history of supporting gay causes. Check out the plethora of links in that first article...this is no innocent mistake. He knew exactly what he was doing.
He needs to go, the pastor needs to go, the parish needs to be put under the Interdict.
Posthaste. Thanks, I think, for those links. The silver lining is that Niederauer (sp?) is 71 and must tender his resignation in less than four years. It is clear that San Francisco needs an archbishop who is a saint like St. Anthony, the hammer of heretics, or St. Francis de Sales who helped to convert thousands.
