It appears that the core of the issues surrounding his activity relates to his advocacy of female ordination and advocacy of homosexual culture, liturgical abuses are also be involved.His faculties had,  according to press reports, been withdrawn by Melbourne Archbishop Denis Hart at the time of his resignation. He has since carried on with an organisation he has formed dubbed "Inclusive Catholics" and has about 40 followers at his services mostly run by women and homosexual activists.

He is quoted as saying he thought the Holy See's action was a bit of " overkill".

Many will be relieved to see such firm action under Pope Francis' governance.
