Burke: “God’s Law is Higher Than Pontifical Secret”

November 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – God’s law comes before all else, Cardinal Raymond Burke said recently in regard to bombshell testimonies from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on mishandling of clergy sexual abuse in the Church up to and including Pope Francis. Because of this, the former U.S. papal nuncio was obligated to come forward with what he knew, the cardinal said.

“The evils he had denounced are of the most serious nature,” said Cardinal Burke, and if true, then “he was obliged in conscience” to release the information as he did.

“The law of God in these matters is higher than, for example, the pontifical secret,” Burke said.

Viganò’s testimonies implicating Pope Francis and other high-level prelates in the Archbishop Theodore McCarrick cover-up have further rocked the Church in its abuse crisis, bringing the problem of homosexual clergy to the forefront. His testimonies have also shone light on the fact the abuse was not limited to minors, as many assume, and that widespread cover-up in the hierarchy fostered the abuse.

Cardinal Burke is a true and faithful son of Holy Mother Church. Our prayers are with him.

God's Law is also higher than the threat of schism from the satanic vermin comprising the Sankt Gallen Mafia. Please give us a date for the formal correction & this time don't renege on it. It is the duty of every Cardinal & Bishop to call out this demonstrable heretic. They are not doing their duty to Christ by sitting on the fence - that's what Satan wants, not what God wants!

This is the "tip of the iceberg". Cardinal Burke was removed as archbishop of St. Louis in 2008 well before the election of Pope Francis in 2013. The lavender mafia is extensive and well beyond even the wildest dreams of conspiracy theorists. I have emails from the chancery which verify that the liberals were able to have Burke removed just before the election in an evident deal with then Senator Barry Obama.

So why don't burke cough up some secrets? What's gagging him? Don't want to be hiding out in opus dei little spain virginia feeding info to FBI/CIA red hat RICO investigations?

Why ain't any of the blogs talking about the neat trick played to stop the trump wall by opus dei paul ryan taking a powder (like catlick john boehner before him) and handing house back to pro-abort, pro-sodomy, pro-pedophile, pro-immigrant (turn U.S. into Spain) nancy pelosi? Sure the busch napa wine growers want all the cheap illegal labor they can get (just like the pro-abort, pro-sodomy koch brothers).

By last spring, more than 40 House Republicans were leaving the chamber. ...But the most stunning exit was Mr. Ryan’s. After alienating senior colleagues with legislative arm-twisting and committing his conference to a hard-line agenda that left them gravely vulnerable, Mr. Ryan announced abruptly in April that he was retiring. While he promised to keep raising money for fellow Republicans, Mr. Ryan’s contributions to the party would steadily decline; in the last fund-raising quarter of the campaign, his political committee transferred a paltry $1.4 million to the N.R.C.C., less than some first-time Democratic candidates raised for themselves.

Mr. Ryan’s decision left the Republican conference in a baleful mood — and enraged senior White House aides and Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader.

“He thought it was selfish,” said Josh Holmes, Mr. McConnell’s top political adviser, recalling the lawmaker’s reaction to Mr. Ryan’s announcement: “If he wanted to leave, he could leave after the election. He let all his guys hang out to dry.”

Wonder if we'll get a vote on the heartbeat bill before ryan hands the gavel to nancy. The USCCB just announced it backs the bill, but the Nat'l Right to Life doesn't support it (they don't oppose it but they don't support it) so Ryan won't allow a vote so the prolife industry and all the pedo sodomites can continue raising billions just like Planned Parenthood off the cold blooded slaughter of babies

Burke is knackered as he should be. He's a narcissistic airport bishop who will go just far enough to be a minor irritation to the Roman monitors but not so far as to jeopardise his 'meal ticker.' If his brain exploded it wouldn't ruffle his cappa magna.
Same goes with Schneider.

Gerald May said...

Archbishop Schneider is one of the few friends of the SSPX. Burke does what he can. We are not all called to martyrdom.

JBQ said...

@Peter W: I believe that you mean "meal ticket". Your inaccuracy extends to your comment. Contrary to your belief, there is right and wrong. It is not the messenger but the message.

Peter W said...

Burke was removed from both La Crosse and St Louis for two reasons: incompetence and insanity.
He eventually lost his jobs as head of the Apostolic Signatura and as chaplain of the Knights of Malta for both these counts. He's a flying wing nut tarted up in in a cappa magna.

Craig Smith said...

Burke meows again.... if he is going to do somthing like the formal correction he should do it. Instead he seems to enjoy jetting around loving the sound of his own voice.

Anonymous said...

Burke lost me when he called the sspx schismatics. Was this part of a deal to get his job back in Rome?
Also he puts out comments like this article but fails to do the promised fraternal correction. You can't have it both ways your eminence. From where I am it seems you are doing a precarious dance with the evil masonic satanic sodomites. Those who should have spoken have remained silent. Souls are being lost your eminence.

JBQ said...

@Peter W: Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote of the gulag where any dissident had to be insane. Josef Cardinal Mindszenty was deemed to be insane in Hungary for supporting their revolution against atheism. Wasn't it your friend from Argentina who said that atheists go to heaven?

JBQ said...

@Anonymous: And just would happen to Burke if he spoke out? Even Christ spoke in parallels until his time was come when he could speak in rhymes no longer. "Are you the King of the Jews"? "You have said it". It is called common sense.---A number of years ago, a priest here in St. Louis was deemed to be a dissident by the new archbishop who replaced Joseph Cardinal Ritter. John May retired him and refused to allow him into the priest retirement home. A bunch of his Jewish friends who were merchants near the Cathedral then raised money for a burse for his retirement.---It is alleged on reliable authority that John May was gay. This is a war behind the scenes for control of the morality of the priesthood. You don't fight a war for very long by throwing yourself in front of a semi going 90 on the interstate.---It is now my estimation that the loyal opposition is waiting for the eventual death of an old pontiff. When the conclave is called to "rubber stamp" his secretary of state, Pietro Parolin (Peter the Roman), as his successor, there will be another conclave somewhere else.

Peter W said...

And furthermore, Burke has flagged himself as one of the standout moral relativists of modern times when he trumpeted Vigagno's Lifestite leaks and bleats as an example of the primacy of conscience over Church Law - which in fact leaves no room for this - while he condemned the provisions in Amoris Laetitia for the application of the internal forum which is founded on St Thomas Aquinas' theology of the primacy of conscience even over Church Law. Burke and his fellow harpies are narcissistic self-serving frauds.
BTW, they won't let a Latin Mass get between them and their pension or a premium class ticket for their next vacation.

Constantine said...

Natural Law is put into question and refuted by Bergoglio and his gang of nine.Natural Law is Law that every human being even without Divine Revelation are capable and expected to know. Bergoglio violates Natural Law by promoting and Sodomy, both in the priesthood and in society at large. Bergoglio is a shame mot only as Pope, but as a man.

These "brave" men like Burke, Schneider etc. should totally disregard Francis and his "pontifical scretes". and I'm sure he has a treasure-trove of them, he and his cohorts. Also, if they had any b---s Burke and Schneider would ignore any rumored "travel restrictions" that Francis and company have apparently leveled on them.
But they don't. Vigano is the only 1st class hero in all this. Burke and Schneider, like little girls who like to dress up, but they bow to the big man in white.

Let us not forget one little inconvenient fact about Burke. He sees no dogmatic problems with Vatican 2 or the New Mass.

Peter W said...

The inconvenient fact for you, sede-vacatist Tom A, is that there are no dogmatic problems with Vatican 2 or the Novus Ordo. The abiding problem is with those who continue to bleat that they are problematic.

Tancred said...

Even if it weren’t free from error it would still be problematic.

Tony fro Oz said...

I note that a recent court decision in Italy has ordered Vigano to repay his brother $2 million dollars in relation to his family estate - and that this news is being run with glee [regardless of veracity] by the usual suspects (eg Crux, National Catholic Reporter, The Tablet) - such as to suggest that this discredits the allegations made by Vigano in the McCarrick case.

But I cannot see any response yet to this by any Trad blogs. Has any analysis of this new, unfortunate, situation viz a viz Vigano, yet been published?

Tancred said...

Thanks for that. I’ll dig around.
