Religious leader tries to stop Sheryl Crow show Sheryl Crow Tickets

Missouri archbishop says it’s a "scandal"

Religious leader tries to stop Sheryl Crow show
A Missouri religious leader has attempted to halt a charity performance by Sheryl Crow, saying it is a “scandal’ to have the singer perform.

Archbishop Raymond Burke is against Crow’s performance at a benefit for the Bob Costas Cancer Center at the Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis, as the singer publicly supports stem cell research and abortion rights.

He resigned as chairman of the board for the charity Cardinal Glennon Children's Foundation after the other board members refused to cancel her performance.

According to the Associate Press, broadcaster Bob Costas responded to the resignation by releasing a statement saying:

"I have never applied a litmus test, Catholic or otherwise, concerning the politics or religious beliefs of any of the generous performers who have come to St. Louis to help this worthy cause, nor do I intend to".

Crow will perform as scheduled on Saturday April 28.
