Dare we hope for Burke?

I have said it elsewhere—quite a number of times—exactly what I think of Archbishop Raymond Burke. He certainly is my #1 choice for Pope. Taylor Marshall shocked me when he posted recently that Burke was the likely choice. The speculation about who will be the new Pope is rife and today I discovered that Austin Ruse of C-FAM has gone public with his hope as well.  

Burke also made the dissenters angry when – following the lead of Ratzinger – he excommunicated some ladies who were “ordained” priests – one even claimed to be a bishop. His letter of excommunication is exquisite, a masterpiece of canon law and reads like a document from another age. You can practically hear the long candles being smashed to the floor as the schismatics are cast from the Church.
