Fr. Robert Zilliox: ‘I did in fact call and demand that Bp. Malone resign’
A pastor in the diocese of Buffalo is telling his parishioners that Buffalo’s Bp. Richard Malone must resign.
Father Robert Zilliox, pastor at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in East Amherst, New York, told his parishioners on Sunday, Aug. 25, that Malone needs to step down and leave the diocese entirely. Church Militant reached out to Zilliox who confirmed and clarified his statement.
“Yes, I can and will confirm that I, in fact, did call and demand that Bp. Malone resign and leave the diocese of Buffalo immediately,” Zilliox told Church Militant.
The pastor added, “I take responsibility for my comments and do not wish to retract them.”
