Do you think you can guess what the editors of the Arizona Republic think about Archbishop Raymond Burke?

Go ahead; give it a try. You can read the whole story. Or maybe take a stab at it, based on the headline:

Divisive bishop to speak at Red Mass

    Well, he's in good company. Jesus said we shouldn't think that his mission was to bring peace; his mission was to bring, not peace, but division. Mt 10: 34

    Let's hear it for "divisive" bishops like Raymond Burke. They deserve our prayers and support.

    I dread to imagine the paper's headline when our Lord comes in glory to divide the sheep from the goats.

    The comments appended to the original article are most interesting, in that they continue to affirm Schlesinger's comment that anti-Catholicism is the last respectable bias.
