I hope the media sources you have viewed have emphasized that Archbishop Burke's intention was to keep this issue a private one, Des.
Burke says it himself, when the interview is viewed in its entirety. Otherwise, that little tidbit is usually not mentioned.
My daughter and her family will miss him dearly when he leaves their diocese for St. Louis, as will tens of thousands of devout Catholics who have and always will consider him a blessing from God.
Yes, well, this morning at the pro-life Mass, Bishop Hermann, for the moment the only bishop left in St. Louis, said he considers it a wonderful thing that our local daily newspaper views Burke's arrival much as Herod did Jesus's, and as Herod's son did Jesus after the death of John the Baptist. Very true. The Post-Dispatch didn't like Rigali and they are REALLY not going to like Burke.

What fun! Thank you.

I didn't see Archbishop Burke's interview, Des, but in written interviews I read recently in the La Crosse Diocesan paper, he stated he is going to be consistant in his treatment of legislators in the St. Louis diocese.
The local rag should triple its ink order immediately because Archbishop Burke is a man of integrity and won't let slanted reporting keep him from saving souls and innocent lives.
