Bishop Mixa feels hurt that He didn't receive more Support: His Replacement
Photo of Msgr Imkamp celebrating Holy Mass. He is likely to be Bishop Mixa's replacement.
According to Kathnet, Bishop Mixa, who was totally betrayed by Liberal Bishops Zollitsch and Marx, said, "It hurts me that many Christians' faith in me was shaken by the relentless abuse scandal." Mixa's attorney was sharply critical of the Diocese of Augsburg: they have given in to the State Attorney "on abstruse suspicions".
Bishop Mixa was unjustly accused of sexual abuse, which the police were unwilling to prosecute, and he has also been accused of canning his students when he was an instructor many years ago.
It's not sure who his successor will be, but the suddeutsche zeitung wants a liberal candidate who, "will not be as polarizing" as they say Bishop Mixa is.
But they absolutely fear Msgr Imkamp who they perceive as someone who will be as "polarizing" as Bishop Mixa.
The Pope's secretary George Gänswein was rumoured among the frontrunners.
Unfortunately, Bishop Mixa may not be the only Bishop who gets taken down by this non-issue. Bishop Fischer of Feldkirch is the next Bishop in their sights.
