Last week, the Lepanto Institute reported on $240,000 the CCHD provided to an LGBT-advocating organization in San Francisco. Click here to read the report.
For five consecutive years, from 20122017, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) annual granting agency called the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) provided a total of $280,000 to a radical organization involved in the promotion of homosexuality and abortion.
The Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT) received the following grants:
* $65,000 (20162017)
* $50,000 (20152106)
* $60,000 (20142015)
* $55,000 (20132014)
* $50,000 (20122013)
It is important to note that this money was provided by every diocese in the United States that participates in the CCHD collection. Whenever a diocese takes up the CCHD collection (typically the third Sunday of November), 25 percent of that funding remains with the diocese while the other 75 percent goes to the national CCHD and is redistributed to groups like this one.

Disgusting if the USCCB was actually aware of what CCHD was funding.
Next up we’ll hear about their funding of the building and operation of mosques.
This is absolutely disgusting! The reason why I never give money to Catholic Charities or the Bishops Annual Appeal anymore.
Total excommunications done in public should be in order.
Let me tell you that your tithings are also going to help the illegal aliens coming up from South America.
It’s called the Catholic charities.
The Bishops using the CCHD money to assist Leftist causes is nothing new. That is why I refuse to give any money for that campaign.
This is why I was a bit disgusted that Kavanaugh gave his money from many who wanted to help with his legal bills to the Catholic church.
PIUS,BISHOP Servant of the Servants of God: For perpetual memory
That horrendous crime, for which polluted and filthy cities were burned by the frightful judgment of God, pains Us most bitterly, and gravely stirs our soul, so that, insofar as it is possible, we might strive to crush it.
§ I. It is reasonably established in the [Third] Lateran Council that any Clerics who are discovered in that act of incontinence that is against nature, because of which the wrath of God came upon the children of unbelief, should be expelled from the clergy, or be cast into monasteries for the purpose of doing penance.
§ 2. However, lest the contagion of such a disgrace, from the hope of impunity which is the greatest incentive to sin strengthen in boldness, we have decided that the clerics who are guilty of this nefarious crime are to be more gravely punished, so that the avenger of the civil laws, the secular sword, might certainly deter those who do not fear the death of the soul.
§ 3. And therefore, seeking to more completely and forcefully pursue what We already decreed regarding this matter at the beginning of our Pontificate, any and all priests and other secular and regular Clergy of whatever grade and dignity who practice such a dire sin we deprive of every clerical privilege, and of every Ecclesiastical office, dignity, and benefit, by the authority of the present canon. So that, having been degraded by Ecclesiastical Judgment, they may be handed over to the secular power, which may exact from them that same punishment that is received by laity who have fallen into this ruin, which is found to be constituted in legitimate ordinances.
(The Nulli ergo is a reference to a standard clause following many papal bulls that read, roughly, as follows: Let no one whosoever infringe this page of our declaration or to dare to oppose it. It is normally followed by the Si quis clause, which reads, If, however, anyone attempts to do so, let him know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of his holy Apostles Peter and Paul. Often only the first two words of the clause are given in reference works like the Magnum Bullarium Romanum, followed by etc.)
Given at St. Peters in Rome, in the year of the incarnation of the Lord 1568, on the third Kalends of September (August 30), in the third year of our Pontificate.
That blasted Human Development slush fund is something else!
Lay Catholics years ago froze out that cursed thing and quit giving, years ago.
It’s a curiosity to me how they get this money.
Do they have a quartet of SOROS types propping it up?
The USCCB is on the same page that Francis is.
ur wish was granted
The bishops walked away from Rome long ago
So many NGO church groups have gone left and against their basic principles because it gets them money from outsiders including taxpayers. They exchange principles for money.
ur wish was granted
No wish. Just stating the correct course of action.
Corrupt organizations are not godly.
Come out from among them and be Holy, thus says the Lord.
Sad and disgusting.
