"Catholics" Upset About Parish Closing Want to Teach Bishop a Lesson

Opposition to church closings is a lot of emotive hoopla. People who are essentially cultural Catholics who go to Church once a year, send the two children they've decided to have to Notre Dame and frequently tell people they don't really agree 100% with the Church's teachings get really exited when the Bishop, (for substantial reasons, like not enough money to go around and perhaps because his predecessor promoted too many homosexuals to the priesthood, permitted liturgical abuses and didn't preach enough about personal sanctity) decides to close down some parishes.

They're not very keen on defending the teachings they're supposed to believe in, but they're really keen on correcting the Bishop when they perceive that the church in which they were married (twice) gets closed down and sold to Scientologists.

"Catholics" advocate stiffing the collection plate to teach their Bishop some kind of Lesson.
