    Another bishop who is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He misleads his flock and those through out the Church. He will someday have to defend his soul before Christ.

    Agree with Bishop Timmerevers. It's up to the Pope to clarify his remarks which is is notably absent from doing. "Damage control" by others is unconvincing, especially when it seems to be required constantly.
