Wow, who’s the new guy in Madison? It’s Bishop Robert Morlino, who calls the current push by a group of Milwaukee priests to make celibacy optional an example of American pragmatism that has no place in the Catholic faith. “It is part of the American fix-it mentality that the removal of the obligation of celibacy will make the priesthood more marketable and perhaps from certain points of view it might,” Morlino writes in a column published last Thursday in the Diocese of Madison’s weekly newspaper. “But it also is a step back from total reliance on Jesus Christ in this matter, Jesus Christ alone gives the grace of celibacy.” Morlino was installed as Madison’s new bishop Aug. 1. He was also one of eight orthodox American bishops last year to sign a call for a plenary council to discuss the church’s sexual abuse crisis and rampant homosexuality in the priesthood. Three Cheers For Morlino!! This Bishop is going to drive the Marxists in Madistan crazy!
