Bishop Dowling's Talk Removed from Website

Bishop Kevin Dowling's hard-hitting talk on the "dismantling" of Vatican II, which I blogged about below, has apparently been expunged from the Independent Catholic News site.  Let us know if you find it anywhere else on the web.   Perhaps the Independent website isn't all that independent.  Or perhaps the bishop suffered some fallout.

Dennis Coday of the NCR apparently had a conversation with the Bishop today and received permission to publish the entire talk. Here is the link:

This is a prime example of what's wrong with our Church today. Very sad!
