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.

San Francisco cronies collude: Beware

unnamed-6

It is a dark and dreary time in the City by the Bay.

“Sal the Ultra Conservative” – not really Opus Dei – came to San Francisco and the city quaked.*

His reputation preceded him. The DUI in San Diego did nothing to enhance his image.

He made mistakes and stepped on more toes than a tap dancer on ice skates: Train Wreck.

His buddy over at Star of the Sea was equally alienating and not welcomed by the parish. After too many debacles – egregious errors He was asked to leave

What happened to Fr Illo? Did they  send him to Salinas? Gonzales? Eureka? 

No..he was embraced and welcomed at St Mary’s Cathedral by his old pal, Sal.

Sal and House of Cardinal Burke are great friends.

They are calling Catholic San Francisco Foggy Bottoms…and worse.

 

 

 

Cardinal Burke

Cardinal BurkeIn recent months, critics have described him as an “ultraconservative fanatic,” “anti-Conciliar,” “in conspiracy against the Pope” and even ready for a schism should the upcoming family synod open up unwelcome changes.The criticism has been so defamatory that in Italy several bishops have even refused to host his lectures in their dioceses. Where he has been allowed to give a conference — as recently in some cities in the north of Italy — there are invariably priests who oppose him and accuse him of spreading propaganda against the Pope.”

  •   Before coming to San Francisco, Cordileone was best known for helping to raise more than $1m to get California’s same-sex marriage ban on the ballot, while calling changes to the traditional institution of marriage between a man and a woman to be “the ultimate attack of the Evil One”.
    “…But the most recent complaints against Cordileone are about his push to increase “Catholic identity” in the four high schools directly under his control in the Bay Area.

After word started to spread in early 2015 that Cordileone planned to impose “morality clauses” on teachers, critics, including parents and students, formed an opposition group called #TeachAcceptance.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board and columnists have repeatedly castigated his position and hundreds turned out at rallies to condemn his actions. Despite that revolt against his leadership, Cordileone is undaunted in his push to recalibrate what Catholic education should be – or about giving his perceptions of what it means to be Catholic in a city that is known for its welcoming tolerance of just about any lifestyle other than overt conservatism….”

Back Story: Cardinal Newman Society

Pope Francis removed Cardinal Raymond Burke from head of the Apostolic Signatura (Vatican “Supreme Court;”) He did step down – way down – and is relegated to the largely “ceremonial role” as head of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

 

When some American Catholics worry that the hierarchy is tilting toward the Republican Party, or taking the church back to the 19th century (or earlier), they often point to Cardinal Raymond Burke as Exhibit A.

Bob Laird – from Virginia – aligned with Cardinal Burke  at the Newman Center/Virginia- opined in a post about SF Archbishop Cordileone and the high school students of  San Francisco:

“Archbishop Cordileone has been severely criticized by those who do not know or understand Catholic teaching and others who seek to directly or indirectly undermine it. Agree with the Church or not, but the archbishop’s job is to lead Catholics and to protect Catholic students from wayward interpretations of our Catholic faith that have crept into society.”

Apparently, no on else in San Francsico has rushed to the aid of the Archbishop, so Mr Laird writes effusively:

“He should be saluted for taking a principled stand without concern for opinion polls. The archbishop is not “out of touch with the community that he has been assigned to serve,” as The Chronicle has argued. To the contrary, he understands it quite well.”
