CWN Editor's Note: Gay activists are demanding the resignation or removal of Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin, after the diocese cautioned priests to think carefully about scheduling funerals for parishioners engaged in same-sex marriages. The policy (which was not issued by the bishop, although it had his approval) was circulated among diocesan priests, and leaked to the press.

    "Leaked" to the press? How about maliciously handed over? Bishop Morlino needs the prayers of all Catholics, especially of Pope Francis and the Vatican.
