DETROIT ( – Catholic Action for Faith and Family (CA) President Thomas McKenna is providing monthly phone chats with Cdl. Raymond Burke for audiences interested in authoritative insights on issues of the day. 

The June chat was posted on the CA website July 8, just days after the 44th anniversary of Cdl. Burke’s priestly ordination on June 29, 1975, a point highlighted in the chat.

McKenna asked Cdl. Burke to react to the tweet Bp. Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, sent out at the start of LGBT Pride Month, that gained a lot of attention, much of it criticism from Catholics and Catholic priests.

Tobin was not discriminating against people but discriminating between ‘right and wrong.’

Tobin’s tweet was framed as a reminder to Catholics who “should not support or attend LGBTQ ‘Pride Month’ events held in June.” 

Tobin warned, “They are especially harmful for children.”

Cardinal Burke said: “I commend Bp. Tobin.”
