CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican Secretariat of State has quietly advised American bishops not to invite Cardinal Raymond Burke to speak in their dioceses, according to veteran Italian journalist Marco Tosatti.

The Vatican specialist also reports that Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who has been a frequent guest of conservative Catholic groups, has been told that he should not leave his own country, Kazakhstan, without first notifying the Vatican.

    Travel restrictions, censures, and the like used to be imposed for _denying_ truths of faith and morality. If this story is true, then it now seems that those who _uphold_ these truths are being punished. Will the next step be to censure the entire bishops' conferences of Hungary, Poland, Kazakhstan, and perhaps some African nations? Are we heading for a serious conflict between obedience and conscience? Why is the condemnation of Honorius I suddenly coming to mind?
