Don't Burke and those fellow bishops who "congratulate" him understand how they're playing into that anti-Catholic prejudice that was so prevalent back then and could easily resurface today?

Of course they understand. What they're not doing is cowering in fear of it. Sometimes doing the right thing isn't easy or comfortable. Buy a ticket to Mel Gibson's upcoming flick "The Passion" if you need a reminder about that sort of thing.

(Incidentally, johnb2004, you posted this in a confusing manner. You excerpted the article in the article space, and pasted the entire thing into the space for your comments about it. I suspect a number of posters believe you to be the author of what you put in the comments section. You might want to avoid that next time.)
