.- In response the backlash that occurred following the termination of a Madison catechist due to her “serious dissent” from Church teachings, the diocese has produced a “Q & A” document to clarify any confusion or rumors which have surfaced following the incident.

Ruth Kolpack, a 35-year employee of the Diocese of Madison, was fired in March by Madison Bishop Robert Morlino for failure to “present the complete and authentic teaching of the Church.” The bishop’s office also noted that Kolpack is in “serious dissent on fundamental doctrinal issues” and should not be in a role where she is entrusted with teaching the Catholic faith to others.

The details of this case should be of interest to every faithful Catholic.
