CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Mark Brennan of Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia, said that the punishment meted out to his predecessor, Bishop Michael Bransfield, is intended to “get him to respond as a Christian man and a former bishop of the diocese.” Bishop Brennan explained: “I was not asked to cut off his head, to send him into abject poverty or to humiliate him.”
