Pope Francis may be about to remove homophobe Cardinal Raymond Burke from his position as head of the Vatican’s “Supreme Court,” relegating him to a largely ceremonial role as head of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, reports conservative news outlet Breitbart.
Burke has been very forthcoming on his feelings regarding the rights and wrongs of discrimination. In 2010, he announced that while racism is unacceptable, discrimination against LGBT people is “perfectly just and good.”
Waxing lyrical on his pro-discrimination stance, Burke went on to explain to gay people what they have been doing wrong for all these years:
“Sexual acts between persons of the same sex are intrinsically evil, are against nature itself…its simply announcing the truth, helping people to discriminate right from wrong in terms of their own activities.”
In the past, Burke announced that former presidential candidate John Kerry would not be allowed to receive communion for his pro-abortion stance and excommunicated two women who claimed to have been ordained by a third woman claiming to be a Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church.
The new role would see Burke removed from the Roman Curia, the body of Vatican-based Cardinals who are close advisers to the Pope.
Earlier this year, Pope Francis suggested that the Catholic Church might consider supporting same-sex civil unions.
