Catholic Campaign for Human Development ends grant to group that backed same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - March 25, 2010

The Diocese of Portland and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development have withdrawn their support of Preble Street’s Homeless Voices for Justice because of the Maine-based group’s support for same-sex marriage. A diocesan spokeswoman explained that as a condition for receiving the grant, the organization had agreed not to support same-sex marriage.

    CCHD is a continuing danger to the U.S. Church. It is enabled by bishops who have mistaken a liberal political agenda for the mission of the Church. Christ calls on us, and his whole Church, to bring His love to those around us. So, those bishops who believe that supporting government social programs is the work of the Church are clearly misreading the Scriptures. The public will never find the love of Christ in the red tape of government programs.
