Editorial cites Archbishop Burke on Catholic voting duties

Catholic World News - October 28, 2010

An editorial in the Washington Times approvingly cites the words of Archbishop Raymond Burke to underline the duty of Catholics to vote to protect human life. The recent announcement that Archbishop Burke will soon become a cardinal is a signal that Pope Benedict approves this message, the editorial claims.

    This was an interesting editorial. The problem was that it seemed to say that there was a connection between when the Pope announced the Consistory and the U.S. elections. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anyone believes that to be the case, it only gives our enemies another club with which to beat us over the head and it's only going to be one more falsehood we need to fight off.
