Senior US cardinal laments the silence of Catholics on pro-life, pro-family issues

23 September 2013

Cardinal Raymond Burke is the most senior Catholic clergyman in the United States

Cardinal Raymond Burke, the most senior US cardinal and head of the Catholic Church's highest court, has lamented the silence of Catholics on pro-life and pro-family issues.

In an interview he said: "There is far too much silence - people do not want to talk about [issues such as abortion] because the topic is not 'politically correct'. But we cannot be silent any longer or we will find ourselves in a situation that will be very difficult to reverse."

He said that pro-abortion politicians must be denied Holy Communion, honours by Catholic universities and public Catholic funerals. [, 20 September]
