Cardinal Burke, “It’s Clear that Francis Doesn’t Want Me in Any Leadership Position”

“Throughout my priesthood, I was always criticised for being too attentive to what the pope was saying,” Cardinal Raymond Burke told Ross Douthat in an interview for the evil The New York Times (November 9).

“And now I find myself in a situation where I’m called the enemy of the pope, which I am not,” Burke added.

He states that, “I haven’t changed. I’m still teaching the same things I always taught and they’re not my ideas.”

He observes that the papacy has been altered by a “political view” where the pope is some kind of absolute monarch “who can do whatever he wants.”

However, Burke points out that a pope is not elected to change the Church’s teaching.

He realises that Francis “demoted” him, “It’s clear that the pope doesn’t want me in any leadership position, that he doesn’t see me as the kind of person he wants to be giving any strong direction to things.”

Dear Cardinal Burke it's clear Pop Bergolio doesn't want any true, faithful apostle of Christ in any leadership position!

Francis the filthy and his thieving gay pals wouldn't enjoy that, although the stake would be for Francis. John XXII was threatened with the stake by the most Christian King of France for a far milder heresy on the Beatific Vision.
Can I remind everyone of this?

St Basil the Great said

“Any cleric or monk who seduces young men or boys, or who is apprehended in kissing or in any shameful situation, shall be publicly flogged and shall lose his clerical tonsure. Thus shorn, he shall be disgraced by spitting into his face, bound in iron chains, wasted by six months of close confinement, and for three days each week put on …More

Thus shorn, he shall be disgraced by spitting into his face, bound in iron chains, wasted by six months of close confinement, and for three days each week put on barley bread given him toward evening. Following this period, he shall spend a further six months living in a small segregated courtyard in the custody of a spiritual elder, kept busy with manual labor and prayer, subjugated to vigils and prayers, forced to walk at all times in the company of two spiritual brothers, never again allowed to associate with young men ”

Saint Peter Damian In books.google.co.uk/books/about/Letters.html, demanded reform, ecclesial accountability, that priests be handed over to secular authorities for punishment, and other actions to weed out the cancer of sexual abuse in the Church.

“Listen, you do-nothing superiors of clerics and priests. Listen, and even though you feel sure of yourselves, tremble at the thought that you are partners in the guilt of others; those, I mean, who wink at the sins of their subjects that need correction and who by ill-considered silence allow them license to sin. Listen, I say, and be shrewd enough to understand that all of you alike are deserving of death, that is, not only those who do such things, but also they who approve those who practice them.”

Burke: Up until the reforms of the Second Vatican Council there were a whole series of rites for the degradation of a cleric who betrayed the holiness of his office.

Douthat: Some of them very vivid rites.

Douthat: Some of them very vivid rites.

Burke: Very vivid. For instance, if it was an archbishop or bishop, they’d dress him in the full vestments and then take them off one by one, with these very severe declarations, and then at the end, scrape the hands that had been anointed at ordination with a knife to signify that this person had completely betrayed the office.

Douthat: Would you like to see such a rite applied to, for instance, the now-former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick?

Burke: I would say that it’s the proper way to go.
