Michigan bishop gives a great example

It's nice to see a bishop standing up for what's right.  Case in point:  Bishop Alexander Sample of Marquette, Michigan, blocked another bishop from giving a lecture in his diocese.  Why?  Because the bishop who was going to speak has dissented from Church teaching on some very important issues.

Here's what Bishop Sample had to say:

“Given Bishop Gumbleton’s very public position on certain important matters of Catholic teaching, specifically with regard to homosexuality and the ordination of women to the priesthood, it was my judgment that his presence in Marquette would not be helpful to me in fulfilling my responsibility.”

Well done, your Grace! Stand up for the Truth!
