Perhaps it’s time Catholic Charities actually became authentically Catholic again.

by Doug Lawrence

Catholic Charities is known for accomplishing much good, but what isn’t widely known is that Catholic Charities currently accomplishes a great deal of its work using funds obtained … not from Catholics … but from the federal and state government.

The natural conflict here is not difficult to identify, especially if you happen to be an opportunistic politician, from either or both parties.

The game: Do it our way (not the Catholic way) or we’ll pull your funding (which amounted to about 4.6 billion dollars last year, at the federal level alone.)

This type of institutionalized corruption and political extortion is already happening in Washington D.C. and in Illinois. Look for it to shortly make an appearance in your own community.

About the only way to fight it is to once again begin using only Catholic money to accomplish the work of Catholic Charities.

Not a bad idea!
