Abortion is the blood sacrifice of a new pagan religion. In standing against any cooperation with it, Cardinal Burke is standing in defense not only of the unborn but also of Jesus Christ the Author of all life and the teaching of His Church.
On vaccines, Cardinal Burke has said definitively: "It is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses," adding that the state "is not the ultimate provider of health. God is."
Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
He knew the risk to his own health but obviously believed that, in good conscience, he could not participate in evil in order to save his own life. This is the very definition of martyrdom. And I for one would much prefer to face God with a good conscience and a shorter life as Cardinal Burke may have to do (God forbid), rather than as Pope Francis or Cardinal Cupich, who are out there right now demanding that we all purchase an extension of our lives with the blood of the unborn.
At this moment, we may be witnessing the martyrdom of Raymond Cardinal Burke. May God make us worthy to stand with this good and holy priest.
