According to these two news reports (both German, no translation available yet), Catholics in and around Frankfurt, Germany are “rebelling” against against their Bishop, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst.
They are criticising the Bishop for allegedly blowing diocesan money on luxurious living and new offices for the diocese. Last year, the Bishop made headlines in a controversy over an upgrade to a First-Class flight to India. Apparently German authorities are investigating charges made against the Bishop that he had lied about the circumstances under penalty of perjury.
I am still not sure about the First-Clas flight. A great deal of it is a campaign by the leftist SPIEGEL.
As for the “rebellion”, I find it totally unacceptable. If they want to criticise the Bishop for something they perceive to be inappropriate, they should go through proper channels and not openly defy his authority and slander him in the media. Even diocesan priests are joining the cause.
