Hush Money: 2.8 Billion Federal Dollars Each Year Goes To Catholic Charities.

It seems entirely possible, if not probable, that the hand of official Catholic activism which might prove pivotal in halting the flow of federal funds to the PP abortion mill, has been stayed by fear of it being removed from its place on the government teat in a similar manner.

We are, of course not advancing a position which conflates the morally repugnant actions of PP with the goodness of the charitable work carried out by Catholic Charities, but the enemies of the Church, the doctrinaire leftists would undoubtedly try to make that very case, unleashing a firestorm of criticism [which the MSM would be all over] that would undoubtedly provide considerable impetus in support of the sentiment that if one is defunded, so should the other – despite their vastly differing moral value.

This logic is certainly not wasted in the ivory towers of USCCB, these are learned men and they certainly can connect these rather obvious dots.

What may however be lacking in USCCB’s calculus, is now that the Pence [R, IN] legislation to defund Planned Parenthood, has passed the House, and is on its way to the Senate, the leftist establishment will without doubt go gunning for Catholic Charities regardless of the outcome of Mr. Pence’s efforts. [Please note: the defunding of the National Public Broadcasting Company, only hastens such a potential outcome]

The Church has a lot to lose, not all of it of a monetary nature.

The receipt of this level of taxpayer funded largesse which flows into the Catholic bureaucracy, we must surmise, has created a morally corrosive conflict of interest – it’s hush money which silences the Church on one of the key aspects of its moral teaching, for fear of upsetting the apple-cart.

As a likely result, the USCCB has abdicated it role as moral leader, cowering behind the considerable stacks of greenbacks which it receives from Uncle Barack.
