Cdl Burke: Canonical discipline contrary to doctrine is "hypocritical"

Cardinal Burke was then asked to address an argument often made in defense of Cardinal Kasper’s proposal, that goes like this: “We are not questioning the indissolubility of marriage at all, but we simply want to change the process to make it easier for people to get an annulment so they can receive Communion.” Cardinal Burke dismissed this error summarily: “There cannot be a canonical discipline contrary to doctrine. To tamper with the discipline is not a light matter.” And, he added, “People are not stupid.” They will readily see the inconsistency between the Church’s teaching and her practice and conclude that the Church is “hypocritical.”
