Archbishop Burke: No to Crow

"When, for economic gain, a Catholic institution associates itself with such a high profile proponent of the destruction of innocent lives, members of the Church and other people of good will have the right to be confirmed in their commitment to the gospel of life."

Archbishop Raymond Burke, Saint Louis, did more than speak out against pro-abortion Beautiful Person Sheryl Crow's scheduled appearance at concert to benefit the city's Cardinal Glennon Medical Center...a Catholic institution.

After efforts failed to convince organizers to cancel Crow's participation, Archbishop Burke resigned from his post as chairman of the foundation's board of governors and asked that his name be removed from any promotional material for the benefit event.

Here's his video statement, along with a news release and pretty decent FAQ.
