Bishop resigns

by Feòrag

A German bishop has resigned amid allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman during an exorcism. Auxiliary Bishop Franziskus Eisenbach denies the allegations and has resigned because of the negative pubicity. A representative for the archdiocese of Mainz said:

The woman was a Protestant and wished to convert. At the same time she had private visions that she couldn't cope with. The auxiliary bishop was familiar with the spiritual issues involved. During this long process there was close physical proximity. But contact was not sexual in a narrow sense.
