April 30th News Roundup

I simply don't have time to cover all Catholic News, but I can provide links using headlines of some interesting things floating the Catholic and secular media. I don't actually read all of these, but I skim them.

No motu proprio yet. In other news....

Recall the other day that Archbishop Burke stepped down from the chairmanship of the Cardinal Glennon Foundation over it's persistence in having known abortion activist Sheryl Crow. This morning, I see that Archbishop Burke takes it on the chin over his decision.

Bishops with Backbone...

Crow giving her time and talent to this cause is no more an endorsement of abortion by Glennon Hospital than Burke is endorsing racism by being on the Board of an institution named for his segregationist predecessor.

The truth is that the late Cardinal O'Connor of New York, whose pro-life bona fides were clear, invited pro-choicers like Jeanne Kilpatrick and Ed Koch to assist with Catholic fundraising. Maybe the rules are different if you are pro-choice and a neo-con.
