Pope Calls Out Catholic Charities for Promoting Abortion, Contraception.
This directive is coming from the top. The Pope Benedict himself is directing Catholic affiliated charities to stop funding abortionists and promoters of this and other activities which are directly against the teaching of the Catholic Church.
This further validates the boycott against the Catholic Campaign for Human Development by Catholics who are concerned about the manner in which their charitable funds are being spent.
This directive also has practical application to individual Catholics to direct their charitable activities and giving wisely.
The faithful might also pay particular attention to the charitable outreaches being pitched to the students in the religious affiliated schools. It always helps to LOOK UP the Organization on the release form that you sign for your child.
Cops: LGBT volunteer shoots conservative group's guard – CBS News.
Floyd Corkins II has been arrested for the shooting of a security guard in the lobby of the Family Research Council, a socially conservative group based in Washington DC.
Corkins has been a volunteer at the LGBT Community Center in Washington DC for about a half year. Apparently the FRC’s stance on gay marriage, and in support of Chick-fil-A had served as an irritant to the shooter, although his motive is officially said to be unknown.
The security guard, who has been called a hero by the D.C. police chief, has been hospitalized, in stable condition. He had been shot in the arm when he stopped the gunman in the lobby. He then wrestled the suspect to the ground. The FBI is said to be investigating the incident.
