    I certainly hope that Greg Burke is more objective and does a better job of covering the super-secret Vatican than John Allen does for the National Catholic Reporter. It’s one thing to report pleasingly just to keep the doors open and your contacts happy. It’s very different to really crack the deceitful secrecy of that last-survivinig absolute monarchy of the West whose first credal item is that it is a law-unto-itself and do open and honest reporting.
