Is Bishop Burke a “cafeteria” bishop?

Larry Slattery responds to a letter to the editor in a St. Louis newspaper that accuses Archbishop-elect Burke of being a “cafeteria” bishop.

The letter writer is a member of Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church, one of the most liberal, heterodox lobbying groups out there. How ironic that a representative of that group would accuse Bishop Burke of being a cafeteria bishop. How ironic that he would say that Bishop Burke ignored politicians who dissent from Church teaching on “birth control, opposition to war, the death penalty, divorce, neglect of the less fortunate,” since ARCC dissents from Church teach on many substantive areas of dogma, including abortion, birth control, divorce, (and I’d say, the death penality, at least in how they phrase their stance.)
