You will be shocked to learn that Fishwrap’s reportage – in a less than subtle way – stresses their Congregationalist party-line.
Here, however, is the money quote from the Fishwrap article:
Neither Morlino nor anyone from the diocese would respond to a request for an interview. A spokesman from the diocese wrote in an email, “We have no hope that assisting NCR with a story will result in a just reporting of the facts regarding the sad situation in Platteville.“
WDTPRS kudos to the spokesman.
I just got a fundraising email from NCR (Fishwrap) using this story! They write:
This morning we posted a story about a Wisconsin bishop to deny the sacraments of Communion, confession and burial to Catholics who are speaking publicly against unwelcome changes in their parish.
Nowhere else can you get this kind of church coverage … [Thanks be to God!]
Here is a link so that you can send a donation to the Diocese of Madison. May I suggest that you all make a donation of, perhaps $1 to show a sign of support? $1? You can do more, of course. But if the bishop were to hear that a large number of folks from all over the place made a little donation, that would be a real shot in the arm.
And using this, you can send a donation to me!
