Our Fabulous Florida Bishops, Snapshot #2

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 10, 2003

Fast forward to 1997. Stunned to learn that the New Ways Ministry team would be conducting one of their green-lights-for-gays workshops in his diocese, concerned Catholics wrote to Palm Beach Bishop Keith Symons. His response?

Since concerns have been expressed to me regarding the presenters, I have consulted fellow bishops of dioceses where they have spoken. I am assured that Father Nugent and Sister Gramick present the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church with compassionate ministry outreach in conformity with Sacred Scripture ... I have decided not to cancel this retreat despite protests by a few well-intentioned but ill-informed persons.

Two years later, the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith determined that those "ill-informed persons" were correct.

We love our bishops.
