NYC had a real Catholic as an archbishop?
Oh yeah, there was one in recent memory, just not in the US:
You tried to kick him out, just as the Arians did to St Athanasius on FOUR occassions. Even the conciliar popes realized the mistake of 1988, and lifted the unjust and illicit “excommunications” ex post facto.
Hey, if you can do it for a schismatic orthodox prelate from 1054 you certainly can do it for a bona fide, honest to goodness, dyed in the wool Traditional Catholic archbishop!
