According to an appeal for help from the heterodox group FutureChurch, Bishop Richard Lennon of Cleveland isn’t wasting any time cleaning house.
FutureChurch, which dissents from a whole host of doctrines, has itself said that they are being evicted from the parish where they’ve kept offices for the past eight years. But with a new bishop comes fresh resolve. He’s been in office for less than a month, and heads are starting to roll. Or are they?
The cynic in me—burned too many times rooting for apparently proactive bishops—wants to wait and see. Is this just a sacrificial goat designed to appease the conservative activists? Or is it a sign that Lennon will brook no dissent in his new diocese? We’ll continue to wait and see, but the initial indicators are hopeful.
