ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke will support future efforts to raise money for Cardinal Glennon Medical Center, even though he has resigned from a related board. The Roman Catholic leader didn't attend a fundraiser headlined by singer Sheryl Crow last night. He disagrees with her support of abortion rights and embryonic stem cell research. Burke resigned from a related charitable board, but the archdiocese still will raise money directly for the hospital. Spokeswoman Anne Steffens says the archdiocese will hold a special collection at parishes to benefit the hospital this summer. Several entertainers made light of the controversy at the fundraiser. Crow thanked the crowd for their support, and they gave the singer from Missouri's Bootheel a standing ovation.
