I, for one, won't be supporting Development and Peace in their annual funds drive this year. And not at all until they clean up their act.
MEXICO CITY, March 17, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Director of Mexico's National Pro-Life Committee has confirmed to LifeSiteNews (LSN) that he is personally aware that at least three of the groups funded by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP) in Mexico are pro-abortion (see LifeSiteNews coverage at http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/mar/09031210.html).
One of the big problems with supporting charitable organizations is not really knowing where your money is going. And in the case of the CCODP, it is going to the financial aid of pro abortion groups in Mexico. These groups, once Catholic, now "embrace Liberation Theology, which is a socialistic movement condemned by the Catholic Church."
Wake up, Canadian Bishops! You have historically done a lot of harm to Canadian Catholics, don't compound your errors.
