Australian supporters question Vatican dismissal of Bishop Morris
Catholic World News - July 26, 2011
Several weeks after the Vatican removed a controversial Australian bishop, supporters of the prelate have asked the Vatican for an explanation of the move.
About 1,000 people have signed a petition to Rome questioning the dismissal of Bishop William Morris of Toowoomba. A spokesman for the group explained that the petitioners wanted to ensure that the Vatican would not take such action again in another case, and that “the voice of a small minority” would not prevail. However the petitioners themselves account for only a small minority of the nearly 70,000 Catholics in the Toowoomba diocese.
