Benedictine priest escalates criticism of hierarchy after illicit Mass in Detroit
Catholic World News - June 15, 2011
The Benedictine priest who defied Archbishop Allen Vigneron to celebrate Mass at the American Catholic Council meeting in Detroit continued his criticism of the Catholic hierarchy in a conversation with the Detroit Free Press.
Father Robert Wurm called for radical changes in the Church, saying that different teachings would attract a more enthusiastic following. The Free Press story suggests that the opposite might be true, citing the example of a lay Catholic who was driven out of his parish by Father Wurm’s preaching.

It's too bad we don't have a special language like Yiddish (Schmeel comes to mind) to refer to people who call themselves Catholics and then do anti-Catholic things. Oh, I almost forgot, we do have such a language, and in that language this guy would be called "fatuous." Laus tibi, Christe.
