Dallas: a test case

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 02, 2003

Bishop Galante has now confirmed what everyone knew: that he was sent to Dallas 3+ years ago to replace Bishop Grahmann (the latter being eased out because of his appalling handling of the sex-abuse scandal). But Bishop Grahmann decided not to be eased out.

Now what?

This is a test case. What happens when the Vatican asks a bishop to resign, and the bishop refuses? So far, it seems, the answer is: Nothing.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
