    Last summer, when the short-lived "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" in Seattle renamed itself the "Capitol Hill Occupied Protest," one protester explained to a reporter that the acronym CHOP was a tribute to the Reign of Terror in France more than 200 years ago. "What happened to the people who did not get on board with the French Revolution?" he asked, to which the assembled crowd responded, "CHOPPED!" This scene was just one manifestation of the guillotine fad that has been sweeping America's resurgent progressive left. #Guillotine2020 is an actual hashtag on lefty Twitter, mostly (if hyperbolically) dedicated to the malfeasance...

VATICAN CITY, April 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke has criticized the Holy See for publicly thanking communist China for its generosity but remaining silent about Taiwan’s after both nations donated much-needed medical supplies to the Vatican. “Something is badly wrong’’ with China seemingly enjoying “a place of privilege with the Vatican,’’ Burke told The Australian.  “The Holy See made a point to praise the People’s Republic of China for sending masks and medical equipment to the Vatican, while...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Church of Dialogue humiliates Cardinal Burke: Mass behind closed doors Behold the Church of bridges and mercy, open and outreaching! Cardinal Burke is forced to annul  a Mass in Ostuni: the parish priest had demanded the celebration be held behind closed doors as his arrival in Brindisi displeased the high levels of the diocese.  The newspapers attacked him as an enemy of the Pope. The Bishop of Ostuni however, will tomorrow meet with the Valdese in church to talk about immigration.  Here we see the Church of mercy, the Church of open ports and the Church of...

Cardinal Burke made his remarks in a short but stirring homily during the Traditional Latin Mass he celebrated this morning at Holy Comforter-Saint Cyprian Roman Catholic Church.  “Sometimes we can grow weary in the battle for the restoration of respect for human life,” Burke observed.  “Sometimes we are tempted to say that our pro-life efforts...

    Cdl. Burke Reiterates: No Communion for Pro-Abort Politicians Slams Joe Biden's 'consistent' pro-abortion record WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Raymond Burke has again confirmed Catholic doctrine about publicly promoting abortion and reception of the Holy Eucharist on national television on the eve of the 47th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The cardinal said, "No devout Catholic, no practicing Catholic, can be in favor of abortion," after being asked by Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Thursday about Joe Biden's pro-abortion voting record and his being refused Holy Communion, adding that the former vice president "has a consistent record of being pro-abortion." No Catholic could "justify voting for...

    This post is to ask for prayers for a very serious surgery I am scheduled to have this next Wednesday. It is a 4 to 7 hour long gastrectomy to remove my stomach with its related stage three cancerous tumor, now dead from chemo. I was diagnosed with stage 3 stomach cancer in July. The current “best practices” calls for four component FLOT chemotherapy, scan for lack of spread, gastrectomy if the patient can endure it, then a follow-up second four rounds of chemo. I have been undergoing cardiac evaluation the last week to see if I have a strong...

He slammed the Amazon Synod's working document as "a direct attack on the Lordship...

    [Barf Alert] Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? Yes, this is a serious question, and I don’t ask it lightly.Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke just stated his love for and fidelity to Pope Francis—so how can one even suggest he thinks Francis is a false pope?I am not engaging in idle speculation, neither do I intend an attack on Cardinal Burke. But the evidence strongly suggests that Cardinal Burke strongly doubts the legitimacy of Francis’s papacy. Indeed, my sincere hope and prayer is that I am wrong, and that the cardinal will clarify the situation by publicly affirming his...

    [Catholic Caucus] Cardinal Burke: Francis' "Personal Opinions" Are Not Catholic Teaching Francis’ condemnation of capital punishment is Pope Francis' "personal opinion as a man,” Cardinal Raymond Burke explained. During a July 21 question and answer session for the Marian Catechists in La Crosse, Wisconsin (full audio below), he invited his audience to buy a copy of the Catechism "as it is now and keep it in a safe place“ [laughter]. Burke noticed that in former days the popes spoke little and avoided expressing personal opinions not to cause confusion. Now, "we have the situation of a Pope who speaks a...

    Have the present-day progressives who say they admire him ever read him? The American Left has an abiding attachment to Theodore Roosevelt. Everyone from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews to former Harvard University Press editor-in-chief Aida D. Donald keeps Roosevelt on hand as a stand-in example of a “good Republican” — invoked, perhaps, when the name of Abraham Lincoln has been outworn, and a new exemplar of “acceptable” Republicanism is needed. A “trans-partisan” figure and an original “progressive,” Roosevelt represents what the GOP could have been. But on the social issues that loom so large in the liberal Democratic mind, just...

An offer of freedom from England would come rather oddly, shipped to them in an African vessel which is refused an entry into the...

Raymond Burke told an international conference in Rome Friday. Responding to a question on the morality of resisting Islamic mass migration at the Rome Life Forum, Burke warned the West of "immigrants who are opportunists, in particular in the case of Islam, which by its definition believes itself to be destined to rule the world, coming in large numbers to countries." Islam by its definition believes itself to...

The Cardinal made the remark at this afternoon’s Question and Answer session at the Rome Life Forum in Rome. The session immediately followed Burke’s address on filial piety and national patriotism.   Burke had been asked, presumably apropos of Pope Francis’ refusal to grant an audience to Italy’s deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini, if a politician who resists large-scale Muslim immigration should be refused a papal...
