US CCHD Controversy

A New Catholic Church Abortion Scandal
Secular liberal media outlets will not tell the story when the American bishops allow the donations of Catholics to be diverted to fund abortion-rights activism. Did the bishops know. If they didn’t know, why didn’t they pay more attention? Once they were told, why did they do nothing? Clergy and laity alike should demand an independent investigation to determine how this moral corruption has happened.

It is Time to Start Answering the Questions about the Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Why Did the USCCB Join This Civil Rights Organization? by Deal W. Hudson 
The question naturally arises: Why did the bishops' conference join this The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (LCCHR)? When LCCHR staff sit in front of a member of Congress, they can legitimately  say they are representing the Catholic bishops. There is nothing ambiguous about LCCHR's lobbying activity on behalf of abortion, same-sex marriage, and “family planning.”

Cardinal Schonborn – Christianity “Dying in Europe”
He went on to say  Europe was now the least religious region in the world.  According to Cardinal Schonborn the culture of consumerism has led to an alarming fall in birthrates and begs the question “Is Europe Dying”. He said the population of Europe was  “selfish” and he called the declining birthrates the moral equivalent of climate change.

As the Irish bishops prepare for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI, John Allen writes in the Irish Times  that they should learn from the painful experiences of their American counterparts. One important lesson, Allen argues, is that bishops must accept their own responsibility for the abuse problem, rather than attempting to shift responsibility to Rome or find some explanation in Vatican policies.

Catholics Aged 18-29 Overwhelmingly Subscribe to Moral Relativism
The Knights of Columbus have just released the results of a study examining the spirituality of Millennials—young adults between the ages of 18-29. Given the option of saying morals are “fixed and based on unchanging standards,” about 82 percent of young Catholics said that morals are relative. Only 20 percent of Catholic Millennials said sexual relations between an unmarried man and woman are wrong, while almost four in ten said they are acceptable. About 35 percent of young Catholics said homosexual relations are morally wrong, but slightly more said they are acceptable.
