Let’s just jump right on in, shall we?
A WWJD Pondering...
A bitch calls bullshit on this move pulled by none other than Archbishop Raymond you want communion you’d best vote like I tell you to Burke.
St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke resigned from the Cardinal Glennon Hospital Foundation board because Sheryl Crow is performing at the Bob Costas fundraiser to benefit Cardinal Glennon this Saturday.
Non-locals should know that Cardinal Glennon is a children’s hospital and Bob Costas has a fundraiser every year to raise money to help the wee little babies & chil’ren who are treated there.
Archbishop Burke hates Sheryl Crow (a Missouri native) because Ms. Crow is pro-choice and supported the stem cell research initiative in Missouri last year.
A bitch is pretty sure Sheryl could give a shit about Archbishop Burke despite his apparent obsession with her and her opinions.
Local radio was buzzing about the “good Catholic” and “bad Catholic” thing, but this bitch isn’t Catholic…so my mind went straight to the ‘what the fuck is this dude trying to say?’ angle.
Archbishop Burke issued a statement in which he described Crow's planned appearance as "an affront to the identity and mission of the medical center, dedicated as it is to the service of life and Christ's healing mission."
His opinion appears to be that supporting the event is supporting “sin” because one of the performers has expressed views that differ from Catholic teachings.
But Billy Crystal is also going to be there and a bitch is pretty sure his views don't jive with all manner of Catholic teachings.
Hell, Bob Costas is the main man behind the event and he’s divorced from his first wife.
He’s since remarried.
…which should have had Burke up in arms months ago since he’s all about protecting traditional man on woman fluid exchanging only in the hope of creating life and never to be torn asunder marriage…right?
But it appears that Archbishop Burke is selectively offended and full to bursting with bullshit.
Why hit the breaks at Sheryl Crow?
Well, Burke is trying to rustle up a wedge issue or two on the stem cell research and abortion issues amongst the faithful…just like that move to deny communion to those who didn’t vote the ‘good Catholic” vote was about turning out anti-choice votes.
Lawd have mercy, a bitch just had a vivid mental image of Archbishop Burke lurking outside of the Fabulous Fox Theatre with a digital camera to document all those “bad Catholics” in attendance tomorrow night!
Talk about putting a new spin on WWJD...
