Cardinal Burke Suggests Media Undermining Synod

Our beloved Cardinal Burke has suggested the media has a rumor mill churning and is fueling expectations that impossible changes will be made to Church teaching.

And then Cardinal Burke said: What elephants?

Oh come on!

It is Cardinal Kasper who is running the rumor mill and fueling expectations that the Pope is going to make impossible changes to Church teaching.

Pope Francis isn't helping.

Don't they remember what happened at "Vatican II"?

A couple of handfuls of clowns took talking points out of context and completely destroyed Catechesis and the Liturgy in every classroom and parish in the United States.

Saying it's impossible is really naive.

It doesn't have to change doctrinally to do it's damage where it matters the most.

The Holy Father has Cardinal Kasper out saying irresponsible statements on his behalf for close to a year now and when the synod happens, he's going to use the opportunity to do what this crowd has been waiting to do since they were singing Puff the Magic Dragon with Peter Paul and Mary.

It very much is going to happen and our children and children's children will be drinking the poison from Pope Francis synod long after he is dead and buried under St. Peter's Square.

Cardinal Burke stated:

“That’s why it’s very important for those who are in charge to be very clear,” he said

God bless and protect him and the others for writing a crystal clear book on Church teaching on the family.

But after a year and a half of Pope Francis and the people he appoints to get his talking points across, I do not believe he is capable of being very clear, even if that were his intention.

In the 57 years of being a Catholic, I never observed or heard anyone who could muddy up Church teaching better than Pope Francis.

Color me a pessimist. I think the synod is going to be a train wreck.

I hope he proves me wrong!

Pope Bergo was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard Cardinal Burke's voice urgently warning him, "Papa Bergo, I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on the freeway. Please be careful!” “Hell,” said Pope Bergo, “It’s not just one car. It’s hundreds of them!”

I would not be a bit surprised if this might not be an exact replay over the sordid drama of Humanae Vitae (which I lived through). First comes all the talk about the Church relaxing its stanced on contraception. There is constant 24/7 media speculation and interviews wit liberal clerics saying that it will happen. Even Paul VI seems to be wavering.

Then the document comes out which more or less upholds the traditional teaching. But...the damage is already done, and priests and Bishops ignore Humanae Vitae and counsel their flock to use contraception if they feel like it.

I hate to say it but I believe that this scenario will be repeated when it comes to this Synod. Please God I am wrong.
