    It wouldn't surprise me if these seminarians where canned tommorow. I can see the reasons already: "too rigid" or "unwilling to adapt" or "lacking docility to the spirit." God bless them for speaking out when their "elders" (who are obviously not their "betters") have been so feeble in support of celibacy.

    Good news indeed. Me thinks that the first investigation of the seminaries has begun! Let's see how many students from each seminary signed. I didn't see Mundelein (Chicago) on the list.
