Tim Kaine's Bishop is reported to be Orthodox.
The Diocese of Richmond’s newly appointed bishop, Francis X. DiLorenzo has delighted faithful Catholics in what has been until recently one of the more dissident dioceses in the
diocese has been ruled by extreme liberal bishop William Sullivan for 29 years.
Sullivan, considered one of the most left-leaning Richmond bishops, has retired at the
normal retirement age of 75. US
Bishop DiLorenzo has come from the diocese of
with a strong record of orthodoxy. When he first receiving the news of his
transfer DiLorenzo said, Hawaii
“There is no agenda the pope set for me, other than the generic one of:
Go make it happen,” he said. What “it” was to be has quickly manifested itself.
The bishop has appointed Rev. Russell E. Smith, to the office of Diocesan Theologian which has a mandate to screen potential speakers at parishes and Catholic organizations. The post has remained unfilled since 1998. Smith said that cases would be judged according to standards of Catholic orthodoxy.
“Orthodoxy is right teaching. Anything contrary to Catholic teaching will not fly. Don’t expect anything about women’s ordination in this diocese,” he said.
Bishop DiLorenzo has an uphill climb ahead of him however. His predecessor, William Sullivan distinguished himself among homosexual activists in the Church for his welcoming of them. (welcoming is a term used in the homosexual community that denotes "safe space" or we are "allies" in your struggle for "diversity".)

We embrace unity and diversity in support of all our ministries, to evangelize and to be good stewards of our resources.
Pastor Arsenault: "Well, I know that he's definitely against capital punishment and works to help defend those who are on death row. The church has a teaching with regard to we're pro-life, and we believe in that seamless garment of life.
We respect sometimes lawmakers make difficult decisions."?
