Yep, it's happening in Melbourne.
Here's the story according to the The Age.
A priest gave a sermon a couple of months ago. It was clearly erroneous in its assertions (about the possibility and desirability of women's ordination and criticism of the Church for its refusal to allow this).
The priest clearly knew he was in error - because to save his parishioners the angst of reporting him, he told them we would send a copy of his sermon to Archbishop Hart. And he did.
The Archbishop and his assistant bishop met with him several times and counselled him to desist or face dismissal.
He has persisted.
Oh dear. Here are a few clues Fr Reynolds. There is no such thing as 'loyal dissent' when it comes to the official teachings of the Church. There are areas where theological debate is permissible - and areas where it isn't. You are either a loyal catholic - or not a catholic at all. And in the later case, attempting to lead your people into error, or reinforce the errors they already hold is a serious crime indeed.
So friends, please pray for Fr Reynolds to repent and accept the teaching of the Church. And for Archbishop Hart.
An episcopal backbone award may be coming up...
