The Star-Tribune reports that in a deposition, former Vicar General of the Archdiocese of St. Paul, Rev. Peter Laird, said he had recommended to Archbishop John Nienstedt that he resign his post as archbishop. It is advice that should have been taken at the time. It is advice that should still be taken today. This is not going to end well for the archbishop and the only thing he is prolonging is the misery of the poor people in a great, historic archdiocese that deserves better.
