Getting rid of the evidence.
Now they decide to dismiss him.
As they say about Roman Catholic Bishops - he was thrown under the bus. Talk is Williamson may find sanctuary in Brazil. Isn't that where a few of the Nazis of WWII found refuge as well? Sounds like a Dan Brown novel in the making.
The Society of St. Pius X has expelled Bishop Richard Williamson, saying he has distanced himself from the traditionalist Catholic group’s leadership and he has refused “to show due respect and obedience to his lawful superiors.”
The bishop told Swedish public television that only as many as 300,000 Jews died in the Holocaust, when the accepted figure is about six million.
Bishop Williamson caused internal strife in August when he made an unauthorized visit to a Brazilian breakaway Benedictine monastery and celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation there for nearly 100 lay Catholics.
A Society of St. Pius X district superior protested that the visit was an act of disobedience that disrespected the society’s procedures. - CNA
Figure that one out. An already disobedient group - many regard as schismatic - expells a bishop for disobedience. Hello? Aren't they all disobedient?
Lay people: Stay outta church politics - pay, pray, and obey.
UPDATE: The real reason why Williamson was expelled. Go here.
