I was prompted by this thought the other day when I overheard a family member mention that her presidential candidate has mentioned equal employment laws and enforcement to be widened to all institutions including religious employment.
I don’t intend this to be a political question or even a debate. It sparked a curiosity to the question of what a faithful Catholic is to do if their very own bishop starts doing things contrary to Church teaching. TO be frank what would one do if their bishop or bishops of their region decided to Start ordaining women? What could or would a faithful Catholic do if their very own parish and surrounding parishes had only priestesses?
I guess the real question is how does one follow their bishop and Rome. Who do they submit to ? If this were to happen in my region I assure you that those of us who call ourselves traditional Catholics would be an extreme minority. What would we do? Would we start our own church? I am looking forward to responses…mostly because I live in an extremely Liberal diocese and the neighboring Archdiocese is even worse.
