No tears for US Bishops on news of another ACLU lawsuit against them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2016

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops receives millions of dollars each year to place thousands of refugees (including many Muslims in your towns) and we have long argued that your tax dollars should not be paid to federal contractors masquerading as religious charities.

One day they will have to decide between cold hard federal cash and their moral principles!

 

So no sympathy here as the ACLU files suit against the Bishops for accepting taxpayer dollars and then restricting abortions and contraceptive availability to the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ in their care.  When they take Caesar’s money, they must follow Caesar’s rules!  They can’t have it both ways!

From Life News.com:

For decades, U.S. Catholic agencies have been on the front lines helping to provide young immigrants and refugees with the physical and emotional support they need after they arrive in America.

But a new lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union could put the much-needed aid programs in jeopardy.

The ACLU recently filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), arguing that the government should not give money to the Catholic aid programs because they do not refer or provide abortions or birth control to young, unaccompanied minor refugees and immigrants, the New York Times reports. The ACLU argues in the lawsuit that the agencies are legally required to provide access to contraception and abortion because they receive government funding.

[….]

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops,which oversees the agencies, received almost $10 million in government funding to help unaccompanied minor immigrants and refugees in 2014, according to the report.

[….]

ACLU Senior Staff Attorney Brigitte Amiri said, “We are shocked and deeply concerned to see history repeating itself with millions of taxpayer dollars funneled into the hands of a religious group that has a long history of refusing critical health care services to the most vulnerable people in their care.”

This “critical health care” is talking about abortion, which, by not supporting, lets the group “impose their religious beliefs on others,” according to the ACLU.

    The Catholic Church is one of the richest, if not the wealthiest, entities on the face of the earth. I find it abominable that they got $10,000,000 in funding! I would love to know if that money really went to help young immigrants.

    Incidentally, Ann Corcoran, you are doing an awesome job! Appreciate the sterling efforts that go into this newsletter.

    Wish I had money to donate to you, but I am a senior living on a fixed income and the government cut my check in nearly half illegally a few years ago, and I struggle to survive. But you and your ministry I pray for daily that God will lead you and protect you in your fight for truth and what is right.

    Blessings to you dear lady, L. Prince

      Are you talking about the ACLU? The Catholic Church is totally against abortion and that homosexuality is a sin if practiced….and what terrorism are you talking about? I am Catholic and I agree that the current Pope seems to be an apostate and I am totally against bringing in these Syrian Invaders because from among them will come Islamic Jihadist killers who may attack and kill Americans in a mall or even in a church. The outreach to Islam by this Pope has really got me seriously troubled because I am convinced the allah god who supposedly revealed the Quran to Muhammad has got to be Satan. Is he ignorant or is he evil?
