Edit request from , 25 November 2011[edit]

Please add the following text to the entry for Bishop Anthony Fisher, at the end of the 'Religious life, priesthood and academic life' section, or under a new heading such as 'Criticism'. The reason for adding is that the information is relevant to Bishop Fisher's life and career and to public perceptions of him. The relevant events made news internationally. Here is the text that should be added:


In 2008 Bishop Fisher was organiser of Catholic World Youth Day, held in Sydney that year. During the festivities he was strongly criticised for his comments about sexual abuse victims, following a plea by the Foster family of Melbourne for attention to their case. The Fosters’ two daughters had allegedly been repeatedly raped during childhood by a Catholic priest, Kevin O’Donnell, who had subsequently been convicted of multiple child sex crimes. One daughter had then suffered anorexia, drug abuse, and eventually committed suicide; the other had sought solace in alcohol until a car accident rendered her incapable of self-care. The church had apologised to the family and offered compensation.

Bishop Fisher’s response to the Foster parents’ attempt to raise the suffering of their children was to say that they were ‘dwelling crankily … on old wounds’. Mr Foster said the comments were ‘astounding’ and advocates for abuse victims were ‘appalled’.

There are two references: 'Catholic Bishop's 'old wounds' comments slammed', ABC News, July 17, 2008. (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-07-16/catholic-bishops-old-wounds-comments-slammed/441564) and 'A spectacular show', BBC News, 20 July 2008. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/nickbryant/2008/07/how_was_it_for_you.html) Michael Jameson (talk) 13:09, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

As this request involves somewhat controversial information about a living person, it has been posted on Wikipedia:BLPN#Anthony_Fisher. 08:00, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
I have inserted material into the article, but it is a modified/condensed version of the request.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:49, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Slight spelling issue[edit]

The sentence "Fisher remains Professor of Bioethics and Moral Theology in the iInstitute.[2] " Should be "Fisher remains Professor of Bioethics and Moral Theology in the Institute.[2]" Note the double iI before institute. Smediamullett (talk) 23:35, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Got it, thank you for noticing. --Bongwarrior (talk) 00:03, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 20 May 2014[edit]

Please change Anthony Fisher OP is the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney to Bishop of Parramatta.

Bishop Anthony Fisher OP is the Bishop of Parramatta not the Archbishop of Sydney. http://www.parra.catholic.org.au/bishop-of-parramatta/most-rev-anthony-fisher-op/the-bishop-of-parramatta.aspx

This is suspected vandalism as the position of Archbishop of Sydney position is currently vacant. http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/diocese/dsydn.html is the definitive source for appointments. http://www.sydneycatholic.org/people/ no mention of Bishop Anthony Fisher.

Yes check.svg Done thanks for providing clear links to support your request. - Arjayay (talk) 07:11, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 10 June 2014[edit]

Please change | see = Sydney to see = Parramatta because he is the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Parramatta, not Archdiocese of Sydney. It would link to this hyperlink: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Catholic_Diocese_of_Parramatta This website says he is the Bishop of Parramatta http://www.parra.catholic.org.au/bishop-of-parramatta/most-rev-anthony-fisher-op/the-bishop-of-parramatta.aspx Thank yu. Godstrumpet (talk) 11:12, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done as Roman Catholic Diocese of Parramatta states:- "The Roman Catholic Diocese of Parramatta is a suffragan Latin Rite diocese of the Archdiocese of Sydney" - Arjayay (talk) 11:41, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Actually, User:Arjayay, the Episcopal See is the seat of the Bishop's cathedra, which was Parramatta. As he is now the Archbishop of Sydney, his See is in the Cathedral there. James (TC) • 6:42 PM 08:42, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Monsignor?[edit]

I have removed references to Abp Fisher as being styled "Monsignor" as I am not convinced about the claim that all bishops in every country are styled this way by the Holy See. The Monsignor article does not seem to support this claim. But if there is any verifiable evidence to support that this was true in Fisher's case then I believed it is required. Otherwise it is not appropriate to include it. When there is doubt then we need to include only what we know is true and not what might be true. Anglicanus (talk) 09:24, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
