More. Chicago Breaking News. Editorial comment in a news story (emphasis mine):
Dolan also does not outright deny the sacrament to dissenting Catholic lawmakers, but he is seen as a stricter defender of church orthodoxy in a style favored by many theological conservatives. By contrast, Kicanas was pilloried in the days leading up to the vote by right-wing Catholic bloggers, who urged readers to send protest faxes and leave messages for bishops at the hotel where they are meeting.Because protesting a priest is abusive.
(Would it be accurate to describe Kicanas as a left-wing Catholic bishop then?)
