Website Review: Catholics United
A review based on: http://www.catholics-united.org/
Catholics United is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose professed mission is to promote the message of justice and the common good found at the heart of the Catholic Social Tradition. The group originally started as the Catholic Voting Project and incorporated formally as Catholics United in 2005.
Catholics United supports legislation that pushes contraception and was a driving force behind the effort to expand SCHIP, which the Catholic Medical Association declared contained: “significant flaws (which would allow) SCHIP funds to pay for abortion, contraception, sterilization, all without the knowledge or consent of the children’s parents.” Catholics United manipulated Church teaching and launched a nationwide campaign to bully Catholics into believing that SCHIP was a "pro-life" issue, rather than just another government entitlement program.
Karl Keating's E-Letter further illustrates how Catholics United twists the truth in its attack upon Catholic Answer's Voter's Guide.
Please see Archbishop Charles Chaput's article in the Catholic Culture Library.
