Report: Catholic Identity in Danger from Secularized Culture: Archbishop Raymond Burke
Catholic identity is in danger of being lost in the current “completely secularized” culture says Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis Missouri. Burke is known as one of the most faithful defenders of the unborn among the US Catholic hierarchy. He told a Fox news reporter that although “some people don’t accept everything the church teaches,” he has to keep teaching the truths of the faith.
He urged faithful Catholics to keep teaching because their Catholic identity is in danger of being lost.
“Why? Because we live in a culture that’s completely secularized.” He reiterated the warnings made by Pope Benedict XVI against relativism, the belief that all religious faiths, all moral codes and all lifestyles are equally valid.
Burke warned against “a kind of relativism, a kind of hedonism, materialism and so forth, these kinds of tendencies of our culture, for us we have to resist them.”
