Cardinal Burke Challenges the Febronianism of the Synod
Edit: Febronianism is an old heresy that never really seems to go away. Cardinal Burke doesn't know where it comes from? Surely he does and is just being polite!
Oct. 15, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - On Thursday morning, LifeSiteNews had an opportunity to sit down with Cardinal Raymond Burke in Rome, after a press conference he attended hosted by Voice of the Family. LifeSiteNews spoke with the Cardinal about the ongoing Synod on the Family, and in particular a controversial proposal, promoted by a participant in a recent Vatican press conference, to allow local bishops make decisions on how to deal with issues like homosexuality and divorce.
Cardinal Burke also critiqued the so-called "Kasper Proposal," saying that it is based upon the false idea "that somehow doctrine and pastoral practice are in conflict with one another."
The following is a transcript of this interview:
LSN: What do you make of the idea of “regional diversity” in the Church? Should local bishops have the authority on a pastoral level to deal with questions pertaining to the “social acceptance of homosexuality” and with “divorced and remarried persons?”
