Catholic Charities USA quietly drops out of coalition supporting Kagan nomination

Catholic World News - May 28, 2010

Without any public announcement, Catholic Charities USA has dropped out of a political coalition that is actively supporting the nomination of Elena Kagan for a Supreme court seat. Catholic Charities apparently withdrew from the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights just days after the US bishops' conference took the same step.

    I have no doubt the USCCB and Catholic Charities are currently associated with other pro-abortion/pro-gay rights groups, and they will remain associated with them until the relationships are exposed publically. What a sad situation.

    I am glad to sae both the Bishops and Catholic Charities standing up for the teachings of our Lord and our Church. Thank you for your courage and God bless you all.

    "Faithful Catholics will be able to know their annual donations to Catholic Charities are no longer being used to support an activist agenda. We hope the bishops and Catholic Charities examine the positions of all their coalition partners and continue to take the appropriate action," Hudson told LSN.-- Duh! As the kids say! Wouldn't you think that our Bishops would have done this years ago?
