As the most visible leader of the resistance to Amoris Laetitia via the dubia, opposition to Cardinal Burke has become very ardent indeed. It would be a worthy thing to pray for his safety, before another trap is sprung.
Now the commentary:
JohnnyCuredents • 5 hours ago Steve, in the last part of this article, are you implying they might actually try to physically harm Card Burke? I don't ask this rhetorically, but just to clarify. Of course, I put nothing beyond this Malachi-Martinesque Vatican any longer.
Steve Skojec Mod JohnnyCuredents • 3 hours ago To be honest, I can't say that was my intention, but I have been worried about that, so perhaps it came through subconsciously. I think his well being is in jeopardy, even if his physical safety is not. If they're willing to set him up and calumniate him through multiple false witnesses, what more damaging things might they do to his reputation? He was just sent to Guam to investigate and Archbishop accused of sexual abuse. What if he could somehow be accused of criminal negligence in his handling of the case? I'm a terrible liar, so it's somewhat difficult for me to come up with likely scenarios, but I do not believe be is out of danger as long as he resists.
