If they can verify the name of the bishop, I'd criticize him and question his pastoral Christianity. However because he is "unnamed" I have my suspicions that the article is making it worse than it should be. True, this may be distressing to some, but to split from the Church over this is ridiculous. Sounds like a bunch of Protestants.
Wait, so you're saying his "pastoral Christianity" is suspect, but then you essentially repeat his arguments that (a) this is being overblown in importance and number by the reports, and (b) that leaving the Church over this is illogical ("... to split from the Church over this is ridiculous" and "Sounds like a bunch of Protestants" and "the article is making it worse than it should be"). That makes sense.
