EWTN interviews Cardinal Burke -- color me not impressed
Cristopher Ferrara at the Remnant brought this to my attention -- "Outstanding EWTN Interview".
Normally, I would say "bravo!" to EWTN. These are not normal times.
I don't want it to appear that I am criticizing Cardinal Burke. I'm not... at least not at this time.... I am withholding judgment and waiting to see if his words which are harshly critical of Cardinal Kasper will be followed up by any meaningful action... will they bear fruit?
As for EWTN and the Pee Wee Herman look-a-like that anchors their weekly "news" show, I have seen enough of their "conservative Catholic" act in the past to not be fooled by this weak attempt at putting up a show of resistance...
I am reminded of Cardinal Dolan's pathetic performance "in defense of" the Catholic Truth regarding the grave sin of sodomy...
As I stated back then, this is a case of too-little-too-late....
Can't EWTN promote the Catholic teaching on divorced and "re-married" themselves? (Try searching your own website...)
Why do they need to sneakily hide behind Cardinal Burke?
So that they can claim "we didn't criticize Kasper [and his capo don bergoglio] we just quoted Cardinal Burke".... ?
And if Cardinal Burke had not spoken out, was the plan to remain silent?
Answer: YES... most emphatically!
Soldiers of Christ? The Church Militant?
... those words do not describe EWTN.
Sorry, these are not ordinary times. We need those who claim to speak out for the Church to be courageous and holy.
We need to follow the examples of the saints. Surely, EWTN knows this since they have whole various series of programs on this topic.
How about putting this into practice...
