PRAY FOR THEM mates! C'mon now. You have a right to your opinions but calling a bishop "scum" is not good at all! Some of them may very well think they are doing good. Remember these are validly ordained bishops and are servants of God, whether they act like it or not. Let us show respect and pray for them if they are disobedient. How many of the greatest sinners have been repentent heretics? Augustine comes to mind. His mother prayed for 30 years for him to convert. I advise regular prayer, rather than insults, are needed. Yes, it is hard. So very hard. But please don't lose hope. Please pray for them everyone!
