"Ever since Nienstedt criticized the gay movie, Brokeback Mountain
, he has been a marked man. The Star Tribune
, the St. Cloud Times
, Minnesota Public Radio, the New York Times
, as well as an array of wayward priests, Catholic journalists, former Catholics, and unethical lawyers, have been out to get him. Just today, Fr. Mike Tegeder said it was a good sign that Nienstedt resigned; Tegeder supports gay marriage. Nienstedt’s sin is that he is an orthodox Catholic. Nienstedt was twice accused of inappropriate touching, and twice the charges proved false. He is a good man who was unfairly treated." - Bill Donohue
, on today's resignation
by Archbishop John Niendstedt.
