Bishop Tobin of Providence announced that he switched his party registration from Democratic to Republican. Hmmmm. I would have thought most bishops would register as unaffiliated. And, I am not sure why the bishop felt the need to share this news with anyone. I would be interested to know if he discerns any "cultural destruction" in the Republican Party, for which one need not look too hard. But, frankly, my initial reaction is - they can have him.
