Video: “Catholic” Charities promoting abortion, birth control, homosexual activism and other abominations

The big Catholic charities have become nothing but conduits for transferring taxpayer dollars to the third world, often with the same agenda held by the population controllers running the U.S.

They can “sell” their evil much easier in Catholic countries by using a “Catholic” agency to do the dirty. And Catholic Relief Services has shown themselves happy to oblige.

Catholic Relief Services distributes abortifacients in Madagascar: on-the-ground investigation

Sad to say, you cannot trust most of the big Catholic charities: Cartholic Relief Services (CRS) is up to its neck in promoting the anti-life message in the third world. Catholic Charities (CC) scandals abound, and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) sends one third to one half of money collected to Alinsky organizing groups that do their darnedest to undermine the faith and elect politicians diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching. And how do the bishops respond to criticism of these horrendous abuses? They attack the messengers. Very sad.

Catholic Charities USA invites pro-gay ‘marriage’ priest to keynote annual gathering

Asked for comment on the situation Michael Hichborn, Director of Defend the Faith for American Life League told LifeSiteNews, “The USCCB’s document, ‘Catholics in Political Life‘ can’t be more clear.  It specifically states that ‘ those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles … should not be given awards, honors or platforms.’

The fact of the matter is that Fr. Boyle said himself that he does not adhere to the Church’s infallible teaching on homosexuality and women’s ordination, and so he therefore should not be allowed a platform at Catholic Charities USA’s annual gathering.”

“Fining charities because of their religious beliefs? What happened to the First Amendment? Why, Mr. President, why?”

Against a back-drop of scenes of the homeless and inner-city shelters, a new hard-hitting TV spot narrated by actress Cheryl Rhoads points out that Catholic Charities of Chicago is “one of the largest charities that serves the poor, but their services to the poor could be at risk with the $5 million fine that President Obama’s new mandate would force them to pay.”

Doug responds to Alynskyite who criticizes the Catholic Church for cutting off funds to those who remain unalterably opposed to Catholic principles.

by Doug Lawrence

No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)

Catholics must be unalterably opposed to evil in all its forms. To subsidize evil in any way is a sin. It’s also a ridiculously stupid thing to do. Especially these days!

Guilt by association? Hardly! Only a total idiot would pay to arm his own attackers. Chicago’s Barack Obama could be the poster boy for such folly.

There’s plenty of worthwhile charitable projects to be funded, without subsidizing those that are without a doubt, at cross purposes with the mission of the Catholic Church.

As for Catholics United … it’s reputed to be a fifth column, catholic in name only outfit, dedicated to the same type of immoral, liberal, commie, progressive nonsense that you seem to advocate.

Spend your own money to support your favorite perversions. Not hard-earned Catholic Church funds!

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Tulsa is getting national attention for its rejection of government funding.

In nearly all of the 180 Catholic Charities organizations nationwide, one in each of the nation’s Catholic dioceses, most of the budget comes from government contracts, often as much as 80 percent, Sartorius said.

And that can create problems.

In Massachusetts and some other states, for example, local Catholic Charities have shut down their adoption and foster care programs rather than submit to new government requirements that they place children with same-sex couples, which violates the Catholic Church’s position on homosexuality.

Tulsa Catholic Charities is not at risk of that because it does not receive government money to run its adoption and foster care programs, Sartorius said.

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!

Dancing with the devil in Florida: Catholic Charities teaming up with Rockefeller Foundation

A letter from Catholic Charities in Joliet to the state does not mention the civil unions but does address the issue of same-sex couples.

“It is the religious practice of Catholic Charities not to place children with unmarried, cohabiting couples, whether same sex or opposite sex,” says the letter from Glenn Van Cura, executive director of Catholic Charities in Joliet.

“While we understand leaving this work will be very painful for our client families, employees, volunteers, donors and prayerful supporters, we can no longer contract with the state of Illinois whose laws would force us to participate in activity offensive to the moral teachings of the church — teachings which compel us to do this work in the first place,” said Frank Vonch, director of social services for the Diocese of Rockford, which includes Kane and McHenry counties.

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.

Why not simply forego a refund and let Catholic Charities of Rockford use the proceeds, as planned?


In light of the unfortunate cancellation of the Father Corapi speaking event in DeKalb, Illinois … please consider foregoing a refund and instead, donating the proceeds to Catholic Charities, so that at least one of the original goals of the “From the Agony To The Victory Conference” might be successfully achieved.

From the official news release:

“We have been working for almost two years building support for this event and we have been looking forward to a very special day. The proceeds would have provided vital support to our many Catholic Charities ministries. But at this moment, I don’t know how we’re going to recover the expenses of our preparations, much less forgo the contributions we have been anticipating to help fund our programs for children.”

DeKalb, Illinois 03/26/2011 Father Corapi Event Has Been Canceled


From the Catholic Charities website:

Father John Corapi will not appear as planned at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center on Saturday, March 26, or meet with sponsors of the event the night before in Rockford.

Corapi was to be the only speaker at a major conference planned as a fund-raising program for Catholic Charities, according to Frank Vonch, director of the agency. “Without him there is no program,” Vonch said.

He added that all ticket sales and sponsorships would be refunded, although he is still working on details regarding how the refund process will proceed. “We hope to have those details worked out in the next 72 hours,” he said, adding that they will be posted on the Catholic Charities website (www.fathercorapidekalb.com) as soon as they are finalized. If people have questions, they are welcome to call the Catholic Charities office at 815- 387-3374 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays.

Vonch said today that he received word from Father Corapi’s religious superior, Father Gerard Sheehan, Regional Priest Servant of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, that Father Corapi would not be able to fulfill his engagements in DeKalb and Rockford because he “has been placed on administrative leave from priestly ministry, in accordance to the Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church.”

Catholic Charities to give syringes to drug users

An $83,000 custom van will be stocked with syringes and other medical supplies intended to reduce the risk of infection spread by sharing contaminated needles and unsanitary injection methods.

The van will be parked in the city’s South End and Arbor Hill neighborhoods, closest to where police believe injection drug use is most prevalent.

Project Safe Point is based on 17 similar needle exchange programs in cities across the state, including Binghamton, Ithaca, Rochester, Buffalo and New York City. It will be a first for the Capital Region and is believed to be the only one of its kind in the nation sponsored by Catholic Charities.
