"The Bishop members of the Subcommittee voted unanimously to reaffirm, extend and formalize the decision to end CCHD funding of ACORN organizations because of serious concerns about financial accountability, organizational performance and political partisanship."
There it is folks! The Bishops have said that "political partisanship" is a legitimate reason to defund these groups. How on earth can the CCHD continue to fund such overtly leftwing partisan groups now? What twisted excuse can be used now when so many nonpartisan charities exist?
Monsignor Burke said there are checks in place to make sure appropriate groups are funded.
Monsignor William F. Burke, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi in Baltimore and CCHD archdiocesan director since 1972.
The checks don't seem to be working...
