Pope Francis Demotes US Cardinal

Pope  Francis made headlines when he said, 'Who Am I to Judge?', when commenting on LGBT in the Catholic church.  He has now demoted US Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, the United States highest ranking cardinal, for his anti-gay beliefs.  This is huge.  It also makes me a bit sad that it had to be the cardinal from the US because that sadly reflects on an ultra conservative sector that effects the law making in the country.  Hopefully, now Pope Francis' beliefs will kick start a change in everyone's mind set.
