More thoughts on Archbishop Burke and St. Louis
How could any Catholic sit there in the audience and not stand up and rebuke the finks for mocking the Archbishop?
The answer is that no Catholic worth the name would be in the audience in the first place.
The answer also is that many in the audience have been anti-life in their personal lives, by using contraceptives, getting sterilized and even being complicit in aborting babies.
The answer also is that many other Catholics, including everyone from cardinals on down, have undercut good Catholic pro-life shepherds such as Archbishop Burke by consorting with pro-aborts themselves and otherwise compromising with the anti-life forces, the culture of death.
There are more answers, but that is enough for starters.
I don't know about you, but I would sure like to hear Cardinal Mahony loudly and clearly come to the defense of Archbishop Burke. The rest of the US bishops should do the same. That would help teach American Catholics what is right.
No, I do not expect that to happen. But it ought to.
A reminder: All Archbishop Burke did was, away back in February, ask the foundation to get a different star for the fundraiser. They refused to; the fault is theirs, not his.
