    It appears Bp. Burke is getting a bad rap because the legislator released his personal letter used it to gain points by declaring her political independence from the Church's effort to "control her vote." Missing is an understanding of his pastoral responsibility for her spiritual welfare. He didn't go public; she did to run against the Church. Hmmm. Will we also now hear outrage about vote control efforts by NARAL, People for the American Way, labor unions, the Sierra Club and the NAACP?

    Shortly after it was announced that Archbishop Justin Rigali would be going to Philadelphia, and then named to become a Cardinal, speculation took place on his replacement and Bishop Raymond Burke was the first to be mentioned. For once we were right and are extremely excited with his choice by our Holy Father. We look forward to his installation January 26th.
