I would maintain that Adamec simply has no canonical basis to threaten a priest (or anyone else) with excommunication for speaking out.
Excommunication is to be used for objectively evil actions, and damaging the diocese financially is not objectively evil.
I'd be interested in somebody submitting this to a canon lawyer.
In any event, this indicates that Adamec's got something to hide. You guys keep up the pressure. We've got the Dallas Morning News campaigning against Bishop Grahmann in Dallas; hopefully the drumbeat will drive him from office.

That's an excellent idea.
Send the secular media after Adamec!
