Who'd have thought it!
It seems that my plea and faux prediction has come true!
Here I posted about the fact that an open dissenter to the explicit authority of the Church was being invited to speak at a Diocesan Conference in the Cathedra of a Catholic Bishop and thus successor of the Apostles. (Prof Tina Beattie, Clifton Diocese and Bp Declan Lang in that order).
Well it seems that the talk has been cancelled - I can genuinely say I'm gobsmacked. The letter is here.
Hats off to Bp Lang, a defender of orthodoxy and lion of the faith. I am sure that there would not have been many Bishops who would have stuck their necks on the line and done something so decisive.
