"Conservative" Diocesan Bishop Retires With SSPX

After his retirement in April, Chur Bishop Vitus Huonder, 76, Switzerland, will reside in the boarding-school Institut Sancta Maria in Wangs, a village 30 km north of Chur, in Saint Gallen diocese.

The school belongs to the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX). Pope Francis supports the move which Hounder announced months ago in a letter to a selected group of priests.

Huonder ran Chur diocese for almost twelve years. He has been a typical "Conservative" who occasionally made "Conservative" statements but otherwise ran a radical-liberal diocese, promoting anti-Catholic priests to leading positions while relegating good priests to fringe parishes.

During his time, about 15 young and younger priests, all belonging to the Catholic wing, left his diocese.

When a liberal parish-priest blessed in 2015 a gay pseudo-marriage, Huonder did not touch him. A retired priest who had publicly declared that he was living in concubinage with a woman, was allowed to celebrate his priestly jubilee without Huonder intervening.

The professors in the seminary in Chur are liberal extremists. Almost all of them were appointed by Huonder. Not surprisingly, when Huonder handed in his retirement in 2017, Francis extended his term for another two years.

[Disclosure: Bishop Huonder is an enemy of gloria.tv which supported him in the beginning of his term.]

Outlier
This story is a lie. How can gloria.tv be trusted? This article was published in 2015 and describes Bishop Huonder suspending a priest for 'blessing' an unnatural union.

Here is another article which describes the how controversial that Bishop Huonder is for his defense of the Faith, which is obviously not popular in Chur.

Dear Mr. Outlier
If you call someone a liar, it would be proper to do so with your real name. Further, none of what you present, does unhinge Gloria TV's reservations.

Don Reto Nay; Perfectly said. We need Catholic bishops, not conservatives.

and the SSPX is fine with putting him up???
Don Reto Nay
@Prayhard: "Catholic minded" as long as the media leave him alone. We need truly Catholic bishops, not "Conservative" bishops.
Prayhard
Indeed Fr. What counted here was what he did or didn't do in his office, which can be characterized as the Conciliar path of least resistance, that is to say, a few unimpressive years.
Prayhard
Probably Catholic minded, but careerism is probably the primary motivation in him. Pro homo, anti-Catholic policies are conventional these days.
