What a headline. I didn't know there was really such a thing as official victims and that wealthy lawmakers want to be victims

"violating the principle of separation of church and state."

Future generations are going to boggle at America's acceptance of the nonsense implicit in such statements.

The founding fathers said, "Keep government's hands off religion," and we've allowed the forces of evil to convince millions that what they really meant was, "Keep the influence of God out of government."

As for Bishop Burke, he deserves a cheering section.

Gimme a "B"
Gimme a "U"
Gimme an "R"...

Praise God for a faithful bishop (archbishop!).

Pray for 10 more like him and the Church can change the face of America.

This is going to be so much fun.

Actually, the only U.S. seat held by a Catholic from this archdiocese, I think, is Lacy Clay, my congrescritter.

The local ones, though, a lot are. I can just hear the complaints now about the Catholics having too much power in St. Louis. Well, we were here first. Think of the name.

It would seem that these congressmen and legislators have some choices to make.

Their religion

or

a legislative, congressional seat.


Hmmmmmmmm.

Not a difficult choice. They could have both if their personal values and choices were realigned.

I pray that they can do this.

Does anyone know if a replacement has been named for Walter Sullivan in the diocese of Richmond, Va? My heart longs to go back to SW Virginia in a few years to retire, but I cannot until the state of the Catholic church there improves. If only Il Papa would appoint someone like Burke. I imagine you would hear much weeping and wailing, however. Catholics there have become used to being Protestant.

Regrettably, you will have to wait until he finishes his assignment in St Louis, which begins early in January 04.

However, you could move to St Louis and enjoy the fruits of Catholicism...
