NOTE: After signing the petition, you will have the chance to send a personalized postcard to Bishop Morlino, letting him know you appreciate his defense of Catholic principles, and that you reject the attack on him for his fidelity to the faith
Wisconsin Bishop Robert Morlino is under assault for his unwavering faithfulness to Church teaching.
Activists opposed to Catholic orthodoxy have assailed him in the past, and they are at it again after his Vicar General gave guidance to priests suggesting people in same-sex “marriages” be denied funeral rites.
An on-line petition launched by liberal Catholics seeks Bishop Morlino’s removal, and accuses him of “hatred and discrimination” and other defamatory charges.
His leadership has resulted in a significant rise in priestly vocations in the Madison diocese – the key to the Church’s continued ability to confer the sacraments.
