Petition calls for resignation of former Maine bishop

An online petition is calling for the resignation of the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, New York, who has so far resisted all calls to resign.

Weeks after elected local and state officials called for Bishop Richard Malone to resign, some parishioners are now doing the same in an online petition. WIVB-TV reports the petition says Malone “remains stubbornly indignant” in his complete refusal to resign from his leadership position in the Catholic Church, and calls his reputation “irreparably tainted.”
