You report that Governor Davis of California has criticised Bishop Weigand of California for "telling the faithful how to practise their faith" (March AD2000). What does the Governor think a bishop is for?
Of course a bishop tells his flock what is of faith and how best to practise it. A bishop is an overseer (Greek, episkopos, overseer). Governor Davis is criticising the bishop for being a bishop! I'm sure the good citizens of California deserve better than that.
