Got a new bishop a few months ago. Comes from Montgomery County, MD. The place I fled. He has been making pastoral visits to introduce himself. While most people are probably just glad to get a bishop who isn't slapping seminarian butts and stealing our money to fund the high life, I wondered how many in my WV congregation caught his reference to "common sense gun control" in his homily. And if anyone has pointed out that this is WV, not a Stupid State, and that he was surrounded by guns at every Mass and as we greeted him afterward.
