It turns out that the LifeSiteNews story that I quoted in this post got things wrong.
Bishop Jugis did not make a statement in support of Sister Jane through his spokesperson, David Hains.
David Hains made a comment to that effect in Public Catholic’s com boxes earlier today. I called Mr Hains and he actually did leave the comment. He told me that Bishop Jugis will issue a formal statement concerning what happened to Sister Jane soon.
Here is what David Hains wrote in the combox earlier today.
This post incorrectly spells of the name of Bishop Jugis both in the headline and several times throughout the article. As the Bishop’s spokesman I can assure you that he has not issued a statement on the matter at this time, 4/9/2014. The statement you are quoting came from Father Roger Arnsparger, Vicar for Education in the Diocese of Charlotte. Thank you for your interest in covering this story.
