KC Star: Archbishop slams Obama for anti-life, anti-family agenda, also slams Sebelius

Prime Buzz:

WASHINGTON – The American bishop who heads the Vatican’s supreme court slammed President Obama today for pursuing an “anti-life and anti-family agenda” and called the University of Notre Dame’s plans to honor him this month “the greatest scandal.”

Archbishop Raymond Burke, who led the archdiocese of St. Louis until he was named prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura by Pope Benedict XVI last June, is known as a forceful critic of public figures who support abortion rights and gay marriage.

In 2004, Burke made headlines for threatening to deny Communion to Sen. John Kerry, a Catholic who was then the Democratic presidential nominee.

At the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast on Friday, Burke garnered frequent applause for castigating Notre Dame, Obama, and Catholics who stray from the church’s social teachings.
