What is the common experience that most fish eaters have with their bishop?

I can tell you that my Archbishop is corrupted with Modernism. He's liturgically liberal, and I have reason to think that he's morally relativistic on the prolife issue.
Abp. Listecki, of Milwaukee, WI, seems to be a neo-Catholic with traditionalist tendencies, I think.

Our Interim Abp, Bp. Callahan, confirmed the local ICKSP parishioners in the TLM-rite, so applaud to him.

Bp. Morlino of Madison, WI, has been known to celebrate the TLM, as far as I know, and he's pretty loud.  :)

Abp. Buechlein in Indianapolis (my "current" Abp) keeps a low profile.  He's been Abp. since 1992, and is 75 in 3 years.  He seems to have good intentions, and is your average bishop.  He is a Benedictine, and was President-Rector of St. Meinrad's in 1971, and was ordained a priest there in 1964.

Although I do not have an opinion on Abp. Buechlein either way, I cannot wait until he retires and someone new is brought in.  He seems to just be holding the line and not being too active, but then again, I'm not very active in this archdiocese, because I intend to leave it after May. :)  Hopefully, back to Milwaukee!  )
So far so good with my Cardinal. He insists on having the Corpus Christi procession on the traditional Thursday night and the archdiocese has had a TLM by indult since 1984.

I got to meet him during the Rite of Election last February. A jolly Bishop, to say the least.

I went to the website and saw no ratings and my Catholic sensibilities were offended to boot. We have to take up a collection and purchase it from Go Daddy.
Honestly, I don't know too much about my bishop, except

1) He forbid Catholic schools in the diocese from using money from casinos to fundraise
2) He suspended communion on the tongue during the H1N1 "crisis"
3) He is an opponent of the Human Rights Commission
4) He reuses the exact same homily for every Confirmation Mass

So good with bad, I guess.

I was really disappointed when I found out that Archbishop Aymond would be replacing Archbishop Hughes. When he was the Bishop of Austin, Archbishop Aymond personally mishandled a hospital scandal. What happened was that a secular hospital was taken over by a Catholic health organization. The hospital, being secular, performed abortions, sterilizations, and the like. After they were taken over they refused to stop performing these atrocities. Instead of declaring the hospital to be not Catholic, Bishop Aymond declared the particular wing where the abortions took place to be non Catholic although the money from the abortions still goes into the general hospital income. Also, when he first came to New Orleans, he was interviewed on the local news. He was questioned about the prolife issue. His response was that there are other issues we should look at that are as important as life. For example, the environment, education, and prostitution. So, if life is as important as the environment I guess you kill a baby and plant a tree to make for it. I don't know what to glean from his remarks.

Could be worse.  The bishop could use the same homily for deacon ordinations...(we had two sets of ordinations at the seminary last year).  That one went over well...

How do these people get made bishops in the first place?
