This is one of those cases in which -- if you're on the outside -- you shake your head and wonder: Can't they all just get along? A priest's faithful march in support.
Newark's Archbishop Myers needs to replace the pastor of a parish (the pastor's 80 years old and has lead the parish for 54 years) and the people don't want to see him go.
I've got sympathy for both sides. Who would want to drive an 80-year-old man out of his home? But parishioners must know change has to be made?
