Perhaps the PB should remember her history and how "shadows" have turned out in the past, especially for James II who tried to install shadows as well. In fact, my Virginia French Huguenot ancestors fought for King William against this guy and were rewarded with land grants in the Commonwealth. Yeah, we Virginians have long memories.
Read Dan Martin's interesting post (and the comments) on the 815 strategy to setup a "shadow" diocese (and just how are they funding that on top of everything else?) in Fresno.
Meanwhile, we are toasting Jean Pierre Bondurant here at the cafe, part of a cadre of shadow fighters who founded Manakin Town and one of our Virginia ancestors.
Note especially in Dan's post of the letter to Bishop John W. Howe. C'est la guerre?
