I must be the only fish in the pond who has not made any comment on the Protect the Pope affair (apart from a few oblique references).
James Preece is following an interesting line of enquiry while there are a few who hold hard to the view that we must respect our bishops and that Bishop Campbell is a good man.
Well, as eny fule knoe, ever since the Glencoe massacre, one has never been able to trust a Campbell!
But my take on the sad affair is that, yes, the Bishop does have the right to demand absolute obedience from a member of his religious team.
But, when faced with a blog that is sound in Catholic doctrine and truth, to shut it down must be an act of weakness and pride.
No leader who is strong and confident objects to being challenged.
