More on Milingo mutiny

~Remember him? From CWN

Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, who was excommunicated in September 2006, has had his Vatican passport revoked.

The 77-year-old Zambian prelate, who has been working with followers of the Unification Church and lobbying for an end to clerical celibacy, planned to travel to Rome with a group of married priests in December.

Like other prelates, Archbishop Milingo held a passport giving him the diplomatic protection of the Holy See. That passport has now been withdrawn, reflecting his break with the Church. The African archbishop was excommunicated after a series of clashes with the Vatican, culminating with his illicit ordination of 4 married men as bishops.

I thought he recanted and got in line?

He did and then recanted his recantation and enchanted his Moonie bride. Now he's going around speaking on abolishing clerical celibacy.
