Just Who Is This Bishop Ricken Of Green Bay?
Just the winner of the 'All-Around Bad Ass of the Week Award', that's all!

And it is will all due respect that I refer to His Excellency as a 'bad ass', because that's exactly what he is. A bad ass.

Here's a few things that the good Bishop has beeen up to; ~ He was one of the very few that stood up to The Obamanation speaking (and giving a blessing, believe it or not) to Catholics at the University of Notre Dame.

~ He's been a supporter of the Traditional Latin Mass in his diocese, as evidenced by St. Joseph's Oratory. His Excellency
recently administered the Sacrament of Confirmation according to the rubrics of the Traditional Latin Mass.

~ As I just posted below, he'll no longer collect diocesan funds to the anti-Catholic CCHD.

~ Lastly, he's slamming on the brakes to all Diocesan ties to JOSHUA of Green Bay and ESTHER of the Fox Valley. Both of these groups are under a certain monstrosity called WISDOM, which is affiliated with the Gamaliel Foundation, a national group whose strategies run counter to Catholic teachings.

~ Interesting side-note:

At a Jan. 16 meeting... the state director of WISDOM, an umbrella group for JOSHUA and 10 sister units, was asked what most influenced the operation of the organization. "First, Saul Alinsky; second, the Civil Rights movement and third, labor organizations," he said.

The latter two are household phrases. Saul Alinsky is a conundrum.

Alinsky is a self-proclaimed Marxist. He also is a profound elitist.

Michael,
As he should. The guy's a first class bad ass! We need more just like him.

He would have fit right in at Lepanto.

Weakland aside, we do tend to have a better class of bishops in WI. I'm just sayin'. After Burke, and Morlino, and now this fellow--well, we might be a little bit spoiled.

The Gamaliel Foundation has cashed in big, via several affiliates during CCHD fundraising drives. It is also bankrolled by George Soros. 'Nuff said.

Waiting for Abp. Listecki to follow through here in Milwaukee.
