Parishioners reflect on priest removed from Avondale church

This seems pretty balanced piece, offering first defense of and by gay interviewees that wasn’t angry and vindictive. (Alderman Deb take note.)
The Rev. Mark Bartosic celebrated Mass at Resurrection Catholic Church, filling in for Rev. Paul Kalchik, who was removed after burning a gay flag.
Article also shows Fr. Kalchik as caring pastor. Nothing about him as defender of the faith, which is a hurdle that many if not most cannot cross, including it seems Card. Cupich.
Fr. K. made his case to the world, Card. Cupich has made his. The twain have not met and probably never will this side of the after-life.
And undiscussed here or anywhere else is the pastoral role owed by the cardinal. His response may be contrasted with that of his predecessor Cardinal George and his handling of the Fr. Pfleger case, whereby Fr. P. was suspended after vigorous defiance of George but was eventually reinstated. All in very public, much reported fashion, and not enacted by surrogates.
