Why in the world would a Catholic diocese put a poll on its web site asking people to vote on whether they think bishops should be appointed by the Vatican [sic] or elected by the people? What possible purpose could something like that serve, especially since web polls are notoriously unscientific? All it will do is spread discontent and confusion among the laity. Isn’t a bishop supposed to be a sign of unity?
