Bishop Johnston New Bishop of Kansas City

Edit: here's the Bishop according to wiki who'll be replacing the last actually conservative Bishop of Kansas City who was ousted not so much by due process but in trial by media.  He is hedging his bets in the Inmemorial Mass of All Ages:

Considered somewhat conservative in his views, Johnston supports the celebration of Tridentine Mass, but has said he does not "hold a great personal attachment to it" due to his relatively young age. He also supports the use of Gregorian chant and polyphony. He has cited Dolly PartonChet Atkins, and Alan Jackson as some of his favorite musical artists.

Bishop Johnston came from Knoxville originally where he was a strong supporter of the Indult Mass in the diocese as well as home schoolers and other good things. He moved to Springfield-Cape Girardeau and one of the first things he did was to institute the TLM in the cathedral. Hes is a very fine prelate and served as associate pastor at the parish where I grew up. He enjoys country music and the outdoors, he's an East Tennessean. The National Dissenter Reporter cannot be happy with his move to their diocese.
