“Catholic” charities are not bringing Christ, but rather programs, projects, and agencies that focus specifically on “services” that are at absolute odds with Catholic teaching.

Genuine social justice is not composed of bureaucracies, collaboration with government agencies, and high salaries. As Pope Francis has recently said, it begins with Christ: “The Church must bring Jesus, the love of Jesus, the charity of Jesus.”

And that’s the rub. Our research has repeatedly pointed out over the last four years that Catholic Charities USA,Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and Catholic Relief Services have repeatedly shown that they are not bringing Jesus, but rather programs, projects, and agencies that focus specifically on “services” that are at absolute odds with Catholic teaching.

Reform CCHD and ALL say things are as scandalous as ever. The USCCB (Catholic bishops) say no!

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 2, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an internal memo sent to diocesan Catholic Campaign for Human Development directors, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has claimed that the “near totality” of a critical report about its grantees is “based on false suppositions” and “tenuous connections.”

At the same time, the U.S. Bishops domestic anti-poverty agency has amended its website to accuse the report’s researchers – namely those with the pro-life group American Life League – of having a “consistent track record of misreporting.” The pro-life group has responded that CCHD has offered no evidence of the misreporting.
The CCHD 2011-2012 Grants Report issued by the Reform CCHD Now Coalition (RCN), of which American Life League is a member, lays out evidence indicating that 38% of CCHD’s grant recipients are in violation of the organization’s own grantee guidelines.

Who to believe about the Catholic Campaign for Human Development?

… the grant awards are based on the judgment of local bishops and the vetting process of each diocese, “not the repeated accusations of those with clear ideological and ecclesial agendas.”

The 212-page report — completed in March but not made public until October when it was posted on the American Life League’s website, according to its primary researcher — accused the grass-roots organizations of promoting abortion, homosexuality and Marxist ideology contrary to church doctrine.

Michael Hitchborn, director of the league’s Defend the Faith project and the report’s author, said his research showed that the organizations violated church doctrine either through specific activities or through coalitions addressing a broad array of social concerns.
