Benjaimin Blosser of Ad Liminia Apostolorum posts about Bishop John C. Nienstedt who was recently appointed bishop of New Ulm in Minnesota and who has publicly taking to task his late predecessor (one Raymond Lucker) for doctrinal dissent.
He reports that the National Catholic Distorter has two scathing articles attacking the new bishop (not yet available on the internet). Getting NCR attentions and rage is a sure Imprimatur for the orthodoxy of this bishop.
This bishop truly appears not to play favorites. It has been reported that as a seminary rector Nienstedt blocked a former Rome classmate from a teaching appointment over concerns that he was theologically unsuitable. Currently he has posted a review of a book that had a preface from the previous bishop. He had forwarded the book to the Doctrine Committee of the United States Bishops’ Conference and they gave a negative review and he also adds his own comments.
I guess Bishop Nienstedt didn’t get the memo on collegiality and has decided that proclaiming the truth is more important
