Dallas: a test case
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.
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.
