A regular bishop (that is, an "extremist conservative" and "hateful fundamentalist" for the "Progressives") is named as Auxiliary in a Dutch diocese; one year later, he is named by the titular bishop to help run a problematic parish, whose governing board is dominated by those same Progressives.
The Auxiliary Bishop is Robertus Mutsaerts, of 's Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch, in the Netherlands); the Parish Church is that of San Salvator, in the city itself; the date for the beginning of the bishop's administration of the Parish is November 1, All Saints' Day; and the open revolt by the Liberal board began as soon as the measure was announced, about one month ago. The board, in order to force the Bishop to back down, threatened to have the community leave the church buildings and create a lay-run independent foundation. The diocesan spokesman's answer to the threat? "All are free to profess their faith". Ouch!
