Thank You Archbishop Burke

Apparently there is a big hub-bub that has come up in St. Louis. Sheryl Crow, an active pro-abortion proponent, is doing a fund raiser for a Catholic hospital in St. Louis. Because of the nature of her activism, Archbishop Burke privately asked the hospital to dis-invite Crow, and they refused.

Because of this, the Archbishop has distanced himself from the hospital by stepping down from the Board of Directors. This is a sad situation where a Catholic institution has decided it knows better than their shepherd. Please keep them in your prayers.

He has released a statement, done some FAQ and done a video to address the issue.
This statement is very well done.

Thank you very much for your clarity on the dignity of human life Archbishop Burke.
