So, it’s that time of year again, when the Conference of Catholic Bishops‘ Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) will come calling on all Catholics for more money. Our Bishops are going to be asking us to pony up this Sunday, in fact.
What a good idea! I wonder if Bernie Madoff could use some, too…
You just couldn’t make this stuff up! This just in from the Reform the CCHD Now website:
For the past three years, Reform CCHD Now (RCN) has investigated organizations receiving funds from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
Throughout this investigation, RCN has witnessed a rising trend in granting money to organizations that support abortion, birth control, homosexuality, and/or Marxism either directly or through coalitions. Despite repeated claims by CCHD representatives that CCHD does not fund such groups, the report this year indicates that 37% of the organizations receiving CCHD funds are in violation of CCHD guidelines. In this year’s report, RCN found that $2.8 million of the total $7.6 million (38%) in CCHD grants went to organizations undermining the Church’s efforts to protect human life and dignity.
