Outstanding statements by Bishop Burke.

The most important thing here is the salvation of souls.

The problem with bishops like Burke is that they have extremely little or no parish pastoral experience. They have spent their time as teachers, lawyers, and/or authoritive administrators. Thus they act arrogantly like the lawyers mentioned in the Gospels. While they may be technically correct, canonically correct,they totally lack the compassion and sensitivity of Jesus.

Sometimes some on this list act the same way. They would designate those who disagree with them as CINO. How about c-BNC for some of them - Catholics -But Not very Christian . Burke and others are right about Abortion but appreciation of the individual consciences of those involved (which they do not know) renders some very un-Christian in their approach. WWJD
