(RNS) When Pope Francis last year effectively demoted U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke by moving him out of a senior post in the Vatican to a largely ceremonial role as head of a Rome-based Catholic charity, it was viewed as a way to sideline one of the pontiffs most outspoken critics on the right.
But the move seems to have left Burke free to air his conservative and pointed views on efforts to change church practices, not that he was ever terribly hesitant about speaking his mind.
