Gag order for bishop who denies much of the Holocaust

From Religion News Service:

williamson National Catholic Reporter has the statement from Bishop Bernard Fellay, the head of the order of ultra-conservative Catholic order readmitted into the Catholic Church earlier this week. One of the bishops of that order, Richard Williamson, denies aspects of the Holocaust.

Moneyquote: "It’s with great sadness that we recognize the extent to which the violation of this mandate has done damage to our mission. The affirmations of Bishop Williamson do not reflect in any sense the position of our Fraternity. For this reason I have prohibited him, pending any new orders, from taking any public positions on political or historical questions."
