Wow. I knew the "Stop Arthur Roche" campaign was gathering momentum, but I didn't expect Cathcon, the influential traditionalist website run by Chris Gillibrand, to make the case against the Bishop of Leeds so forcefully.

Here is Gillibrand's post, headed: "Bishop Roche - Just say No!" As I explained yesterday, the Holy Father may well choose +Arthur and, if so, the time will come for the bishop's critics to offer him their support. But let no one imagine that the nomination of Bishop Roche to succeed Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor is uncontroversial.
