Thousands sign online petition to remove Madison's Bishop

There's an online petition to remove the Bishop of the Diocese of Madison.  

Bishop Robert Morlino is being criticized for his attitude about the LGTBQ community.  Earlier this week, an email was sent to priests in the diocese saying that they could deny funeral rights for those in same-sex partnerships.  

The diocese released a statement that said the communication is not official policy, but does meet the approval of Bishop Morlino.  

The petition was posted on Thursday and has thousands of signatures.
