What do you mean the bishop is 'open to referendum solution'

I find this tweet extremely annoying:

Since when does a faith leader have the capital to determine what should or should not go up for referendum? It's like a legislator saying she would entertain a public vote on whether or not to enhance the flavor of the church's communion wafer.

He's "open" to a public vote on a matter of civil government? Perhaps the bishop would also be open to a much needed reconsideration of what does and does not constitute an overreach by a tax exempt organization.
