At Badger Catholic I saw something that helps to explain Burke Derangement Syndrome, or BDS.
You surely have seen dramatic, fainting couch worthy, episodes of BDS over at NSR (National Schismatic Reporter… to use just one possible “s” word, aka Fishwrap).
Certain of their writers simply hate Card. Burke. They see His Eminence and they become silly, they vent, they swoon, they throw a spittle-flecked nutty.
Badger Catholic may have put the finger on the sore spot.
Cardinal Burke and the 1998 conversion of one of “Wisconsin’s most outspoken gay activists”
Recently we posted a story that has circulated on the internet about Cardinal Burke and the conversion of an active homosexualist.
Thanks to a gracious commenter, I found the true story of the gay activist’s conversion.
You can read the story “Coming Out of Sodom” by Eric Hess in Celebrate Life Magazine 2011-09-29 www.clmagazine.org/article/index/id/OTI2Mw/The story is from 2011 but the actual conversion happened in 1998 in the La Crosse Diocese. There may be other stories like this one but this seems to match the details of the original.
I would recommend reading the whole thing, I’ll highlight a few details.
Read the rest there.
So, am I wrong? Sure there are other reasons why catholics might dislike Card. Burke, but…. think about it.
