Augsburg: Fr. Oblinger Gets Promotion from Bishop

Edit: thinks he is still being treated unfairly by his Bishop and insists that loyalty at the expense of the truth is not Catholic.

"As far as the loyalty I have to my Bishop, I haven't allowed a single doubt This is the central point of lived Catholicity," said Pastor Oblinger.

"It is a shame that in the past weeks, various sides have attempted to put a wedge between Bishop Zdarsa and myself. As far as the loyalty I have to my Bishop, I haven't allowed a single doubt," he said in a message.
