I never thought the French would show us how to receive – and send off – a liberal bishop. But the parish of Saint-Taurin, Thiberville in Normandy showed us – and Bishop Nourrichard quite well. (Note the news video is in French.)
Just wearing those rainbow vestments is enough reason to run off that “bishop.”
I agree with Damian Thompson that “the real highlight is the little altar server, who had earlier walked off the sanctuary, going back and telling Bishop Nourrichard that he’ll never be a server for him again.” God bless that kid!
UPDATE: Standing up to the bishop is paying off. After the international scandal and pressure from higher-ups, Bishop Nourrichard has backed down.
