Raymond Cardinal Burke was given a standing ovation yesterday in Canada's House of Commons following the daily Question Period at Ottawa. Cardinal Burke is in Ottawa for an address this evening.On the eve of his attendance, Ottawa Catholic priest and professor at the University of Ottawa has roundly and severely come out against the very presence of the Cardinal in Canada's capital city.
As reported at the Catholic Intelligence Agency blog, Andre Samson, the former Pastor of St. Margaret Mary Parish, said in an Email read out on CBC Radio Canada that “As a gay [man] and as a priest of the Archdiocese of Ottawa (Call from the Archbishop in 3, 2, 1...), I am upset at the visit of this person. I particularly blame those who invited him, the CCO Movement, Catholic Christian Outreach —who seek to provoke and to distance themselves from the current pope (Only a seriously confused individual driven by envy could 1) attempt to divide a faithful group from their pope, and 2) make such a moronic statement about CCO—see commentary below). The resistance towards Pope Francis has regrouped itself around this operetta Cardinal who likes to disguise himself as a drag queen (Seriously, Fr. Samson, that's the best you can do? You don't like Cardinal Burke's liturgical fashion sense. That's more than just a bit catty, don't ya think? Some men can wear the cappa magna. Others, such as Samson, can only wish they could be that masculine and urbane). I know well today’s youth because I’ve taught at the University of Ottawa for the last sixteen years. I can affirm that Burke will have more success at Mado [CIA Note: a drag queen bar] than with the university students that CCO looks to convert (Clearly, Fr. Head
-up-his-in-sand has chosen to ignore the increasing number of conversions God has been working through CCO missionaries)."
Sadly, many have been duped by the increasingly irrelevant dissidents of the 1970s, '80's and '90s. A few have recovered, but the hangover lingers among those who drank from the poison punch offered by the likes of Baum, De Roo and Leddy.
