Catholic Charities USA has revised its official public response to the Obama administrations compromise contraceptive mandate. Originally readers will recall, the statement from Father Larry Snyder was unambiguously supportive of the White House plan. As revised, the statement is now ambiguous. That isif I may use a currently popular phrasea first step in the right direction.

Somebody must have given Father Snyder “a good talking to.”
These Marxist “priests” have to understand that Marxist ideology is incompatible with Christian teaching.
He worships in the temple of Baal, if he aligns himself to zero’s policies.
Or someone pointed out that a reduction in donations would occur forthwith.
more likely this....
For decades Catholic Charities has benefitted from the ignorance of donars, blindly assuming their business practices were in concert with Rome.
Now, exposed, donars have likely commented on their displeasure.
Nothing speaks as loudly or as quickly as money.
Sad but true....
Old statement (no longer accessible):
This compromise enables Catholic Charities USA to not only continue to provide access to quality healthcare to its 70,000 employees and families across the country of many different faiths and backgrounds, but also guarantees the continued delivery of vital services to the more than 10 million people living in need across the country.
We are hopeful that this is a step in the right direction and are committed to continuing our work to ensure that our religious institutions will continue to be granted the freedom to remain faithful to our beliefs, while also being committed to providing access to quality healthcare for our 70,000 employees and their families across the country.
That’s not a little different! That’s a complete about-face, stronger than Dolan’s original “step in the right direction.” CC is saying it HOPES this is a sitrd. “continuing our work to ensure that religious institutions will continue to be granted . . . freedom to remain faithful” is a far cry from “continuing to provide quality healthcare.”
Thank you, WHOEVER who prevailed on the CC’s president!
Looks like a ploy because donations dropped. Apparently libs don’t donate to charities.
a trip to Benedict’s woodshed...
They also include phone numbers and email addresses and when I sent them a couple of emails and made several phone calls they were quick to point out that they disagreed with the national statement, and I was quick to point out that my donations were to Catholic Charities and if that is their official position, I can stop sending in my money.
I must not have been alone.
Now someone needs to talk to Father Jenkins and whoever is running Georgetown.
