Archbishop forbids priest from broadcasting, posting on Web

Duluth News Tribune


ST. PAUL - The archbishop of Minneapolis and St. Paul has ordered a prominent conservative priest to stop publishing his homilies on the Web and broadcasting them on Catholic radio.
The Rev. Robert Altier of St. Agnes Church has spoken against a sex-abuse prevention program taught throughout the archdiocese, including to schoolchildren.
Such programs were required by U.S. bishops in response to cases of clergy abuse, but some critics have said they are too explicit for children and infringe on parents' role in teaching their kids about sex.
