He's not even installed, and already ...
Bishop Salvatore Matano isn't scheduled to be installed as Bishop of Rochester until January 3, but already the pickers of nits on the left and the right are searching for nits on him to pick.
Too conservative. Not enough parish-level pastoral experience. Too many ties to the hierarchy. Shielded diocesan assets during the sex abuse settlements in Vermont.
Someone even made a crack about his hair. Oh, and he's short.
And, of course, there are the gratuitous digs at Bishop Emeritus Matthew Clark.
Jeesh. Give Bishop Matano a chance to get here and get his suitcase unpacked.
Then you can crucify him.
Pax et bonum
