A bishop's golden parachute

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 20, 2003

Bishop Patrick Ziemann resigned in disgrace from his California diocese in 1999. But he still has friends in high places, according to a provocative story in the San Francisco Weekly. The story is unsettling; the word "blackmail" keeps popping into mind. And we're left asking a familiar question: Is there anything that would cause American bishops to stop supporting one of their own?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
