On this special episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, I interview Father John Lovell, head of the Coalition for Canceled Priests and others at the Coalition’s second conference, while also reflecting on the event itself.
Speaking with Lovell, he tells me that turnout for the event was “tremendous,” with priests and laity from as far away as Scotland and from across the U.S. He further tells me that the speakers for the event were “excellent,” among whom were Altman, Jesse Romero, Michael Hichborn, Abby Johnson, Kennedy Hall, Liz Yore, and Doug Barry.
He also tells me that bishops support the Coalition, explaining, “I’ve had a lot of bishops come up to me, because we’re not an organization that is directly attacking bishops, and I would even dare say we’re not even indirectly attacking, but we’re shedding light on an injustice that some of the bishops are perpetrating.”
