pope demotes outspoken conservative american cardinal

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/pope-demotes-outspoken-american-conservative-cardinal/ar-AA78KoQ?ocid=iehp


At a meeting of bishops from around the world last month, Burke was the flag-bearer for conservatives opposed to the Church adopting a more welcoming attitude towards homosexuals.

Burke has publicly clashed with the pope several times since the Argentine pontiff's election in 2013 and Vatican sources have said the pope saw Burke's outspokenness as part of the so-called "culture wars" among Catholics that he wants to avoid.

During the synod, Burke assailed German Cardinal Walter Kasper, who had argued that the Church should modify teachings that ban Catholics who have divorced and then remarried in civil services from receiving communion.

2. Yes, he is nothing more than ceremonial at this point.

And there from a position of great power.

Good riddance.

5. May Pope Frank live long and continue dragging the church screaming into the 21st century.

Seriously!

13. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The RCC hasn't even caught up to the 20th yet.

12. And he could take up knitting, too.

At any rate, I'm sure that he won't be able to get the kind of media attention that he is used to.

16. He knew it three weeks ago and told the press he knew it, but

the vatican did not announce it until Saturday.
