Washington D.C., Apr 29, 2012 / 04:04 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The U.S. bishops' anti-poverty program won support for defunding a Colorado immigrant aid organization over its intricate involvement with a coalition that violates Church teaching.
“Despite its claims to the contrary,” the southwestern Colorado nonprofit Compañeros played a major role in a statewide coalition promoting homosexual behavior, said Michael Hichborn, spokesman for a Catholic watchdog group.
Hichborn told CNA on April 27 that the bishops' program made the right call in axing funds to Compañeros, a founding member – with representation on the board of directors – of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, which actively supports gay unions.
Praise and glory be to God forever that the CCHD cut funding to this group which was promoting homosexual behavior! May the Church continue to do good things such as this. We cannot and will not fund any organization that promotes sin!
