Bishop Morlino of Madison died last night


The Diocese of Madison has confirmed the death of Robert C. Morlino, the Bishop of Madison Saturday night.

In a Facebook post, the Diocese said Morlino passed away Saturday, Nov. 24. at 9:15 p.m. at St. Mary's Hospital, at the age of 71. Diocese spokesman Brent King says the bishop suffered an apparent heart attack while undergoing medical tests.

Morlino was installed the fourth bishop of Madison in August 2003. The Wisconsin State Journal reports he upheld conservative Catholic Church teachings often at odds with the diocese's more liberal members.

I suppose I should be nice after his passing but his effect on the Madison diocese was negative at best.  Of course every media outlet in the area will now be claiming he's the greatest Catholic since Jesus Christ.
