    in the late 1800's I think, who took a Poor diocese and started selling off the cathedral contents and church properties to feed the poor.  The rich complained to Rome, and announced eventually his "excommunication ".
    The poor followed him, in some way sensing that Rome had made a terrible error.  He established a separate branch of the church,  I Suppose thought of as apostate, but theologically valid, by the church careerists.  
    Hope someone who is a member of that branch of the church will correct my inaccuracies.
    One of my heroes, an a True Catholic by almost any measure.
