Cardinal Sins: Cardinal Burke

Cardinal Burke

“Cardinal Raymond Burke is a 66-year-old guy who lives in Rome,

dresses like Queen Elizabeth,

and talks like someone who majored in misogyny at some bogus,

backwoods, Bible-banging tent school.”

( Mike Barnicle 2015 )

 

ROME – Despite widespread perceptions of animosity between Pope Francis and American Cardinal Raymond Burke, seen as the leader of the pope’s conservative opposition, the pontiff has declared in a new interview that “I do not see Cardinal Burke as an enemy.”

Francis also denied that the recent decision to send him to Guam to lead a canonical trial of an archbishop accused of sexually abusing minors was any kind of exile.

“Cardinal Burke was [in Guam] because of some terrible incidents there. For that I’m very grateful to him, he’s an excellent lawyer, but I believe the assignment is almost completed,” the pope said.
