Local Spritual Director for Catholics Against Chastity is At It

Again. This time in a letter to the StarTribune:

As a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, I would ask our archbishop, John Nienstedt, to prayerfully consider stepping down from his office. It would be healing for our state and our church and would show some magnanimity on his part. His misguided crusade to change our Constitution, spending more than a million dollars and, more importantly, much goodwill, has been rejected. Elections have consequences.

THE REV. MICHAEL TEGEDER, Minneapolis
Six and half years ago popular orthodox priest and once Relevant Radio darling, Fr. Robert Altier, found himself ordered to focus on his charism (effectively banning him from the radio) and then reassigned as a nursing home chaplain by Archbishop Harry Flynn after stirring the pot regarding the archdiocese's implementation of the safety program in response to the priest sex abuse scandal. In that context, that Fr. Tegeder is still doing parish work is pretty indicative of magnanimity on the part of Archbishop Nienstedt.

  1. Great parallel!  Fr. Altier is one of the best priests we have in this archdiocese (with all glory belonging to God).  His homilies are posted here:  http://www.catholicparents.org/altierhomilies.html

    I can't believe he is still in silence, while a man like this is still scandalizing Catholics.  Fr. Altier was correct about the sexual education program, at least.

  2. Thanks for the link. Those homilies are gold.

    Fr. Altier was off a little in that some of what he was talking about was out of date, but he was correct in the main.

    I too am surprised he hasn't gotten a different assignment, yet, and been able to expand his ministry.

    What's really remarkable about the differences between the two is the obedience displayed by Fr. Altier.
