Petition to Pope Benedict about Unjust Firing of Bishop William Morris

Through the lay Catholic reform group Voice of the Faithful (VOTF), I've just gotten word of a petition drive being organized by the group Just Church to object to the unjust treatment of Australian bishop William Morris.  As I noted in several postings some days ago (and here, here, and here), Morris was removed from his position as bishop of Toowoomba the day following the beatification of John Paul II.

Pope Benedict removed Bishop Morris from office, and this petition is directed to the pope.  If you feel inclined to sign (and I recommend signing), the petition is here.  The petition site also has instructions about how you can share this document with others.
