The Double Standard of Cardinal Danneels

On matters of faith, the local bishop knows better than the Pope himself.

"Accusations are made directly to Rome about theologians from persons who are not theologians. Some of these accusations are anonymous. The local bishop should be the one to relate to theologians to determine orthodoxy. "

But when he as the Head of the Belgium Church had to deal with an utterly immoral bishop, it was more than his job was worth to intervene and said it was the Pope's responsibility.

Did Danneels keep the Vatican in the dark about the Bishop of Bruges?
