    Catholic Charities isn't even Cathlic. Their coulnselors aren't, their policies aren't and their leadership isn't. The "American" catholic church needs to completely divest itself of all government funding and repent and conform itself to the teachings of the Mageterium! After this is done, they will wee another penny of my money.

    RC wrote: Couldn't Catholic Charities (Boston) subdivide its work into two corporations: one for programs that meet government/corporate restrictions and one for those that don't? Goverment/corporate restrictions can compromise the Catholic teachings; to outsource the compromise is to be involved in the "sin", much like voting for pro-choice politicians.

    CATHOLIC Charities not CAFETERIA CATHOLIC Caharities. If one donates to ab organization that has the title of Catholic Charities, one would expect that the organization shares more than a name with the Catholic Church; why be surprised when such a group actually does what the Holy Father asks of them? If following the wishes of the Holy father costs Catholic Charities some funding, the poor and needy will suffer because the liberals don't like what the Holy father has to say.

    "he was deeply disappointed that the bishops never established any communication with the board. He has asked that Catholic officials consider creative alternatives to satisfy all sides, such as setting up an affiliated agency that could handle adoptions for Catholic Charities, but would be distant enough not to fall under direct control of the archdiocese." If an action is against the faith, should the "dirty deed" be passed on to someone else? Is it right or is it wrong?

    I wonder if Catholic Charities is already a goner. Some dioceses don't have one. Could be that the government regulations may be more than what Ceasar is due.
