Defend and Support Bishop Robert C. Morlino

We are asking that His Holiness Pope Francis not remove Robert C. Morlino from his role as Bishop of the Madison Diocese.
Bishop Morlino exerts a charitable and unifying influence over the Diocese through his loving attempts to guide his flock in the Holy Catholic Faith. Furthermore, he is a conscientious father whose attitudes and opinions about the LGBTQI members of his Diocese reflect perfectly the teaching of the Catholic Church as infallibly reiterated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (#2357). His love and guidance for poor sinners in his diocese, be they gay or straight, is a beautiful reflection of Christ’s admonition to love thy neighbor, as well as one of Christ’s Seven Spiritual Works of Mercy— “to admonish the sinner”.
He supports guidelines instructing his priests to conscientiously guide his flock in matters regarding what the Catholic Church considers public sins. He loves his flock, especially sinners, to such an extent that he goes out of his way to help them remove themselves from lifestyles which are destructive and which the Catholic Church forbids, not out of hate or bigotry, but out of love. We are all sinners, but Bishop Morlino loves us all enough to remain undaunted by the tyrannical constraints of political correctness and to inform us exactly what the Church teaches we must do to save our immortal souls.
In other words, Bishop Morlino is a good shepherd to his flock, who loves all his sheep equally the way Christ would have, and cares deeply for their immortal souls. http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/madison-catholic-diocese-offers-considerations-that-could-limit-funeral-rites/article_e644c9a1-95ec-5427-8e07-4392e1df81bc.html
Finally, it is apparent that Bishop Morlino has enough love in his heart and strength of character to be concerned for all souls in his diocese, even when such concern is met with hateful rhetoric against his person. He’s fearless, and we believe the Church is greatly served by his faithful ministry.
Bishop Morlino’s 14-year pattern and practice of faithfully fulfilling the duties of his office has caused Madison, WI to become one of the most Catholic dioceses in the country.
It is for this reason that we are asking his Holiness Pope Francis to ignore the hateful demands of a small group of angry activists who flagrantly and publicly despise the Church’s teachings to such an extent that they want Robert C. Morlino removed as Bishop of the Madison Diocese for faithfully defending said teachings.
We thank God for Bishop Morlino.
