Bishop Doherty Avoids Rosary Rally

Catholics in the diocese of Lafayette, Indiana held a Rosary rally outside the chancery on Thursday to express their support for a recently suspended priest and deliver a petition for his reinstatement.

Early this month, Bp. Timothy Doherty announced the suspension of Fr. Theodore Rothrock from priestly ministry for teaching his flock that Antifa and Black Lives Matter Inc. are anti-Catholic Marxist fronts.

Many Catholics in the diocese have reported that Bp. Doherty is negligent with his flock.

Christine Harrington: “In Church Militant’s report, one parishioner described how the bishop totally ignored him when he simply gave a friendly ‘hello’ after Mass.”

This reported negligence extended to Thursday’s Rosary rally.

Harrington: “The day before the delivery of the petition by LifeSiteNews and the many Catholic groups who support Fr. Rothrock, the bishop announced without an explanation that the chancery will be closed for two days.”
