How about YOU read the link I posted which demonstrates that a Haitian bishop and Honduran Cardinal are officers of this organization? You really think those guys are supporting protestant proselytizers?
What you say is true about some groups like Compassion International and similar. But i really don't think Food for the Poor is one of them.
Article from 2002;
Bishops Bolt Food For The Poor.
A little more than a year ago, a former official for Food For the Poor (FFTP) arrived at The NonProfit Times to detail problems with how the Deerfield Beach, Fla., group was being run and alleged improper actions by its then leader, Ferdinand Mahfood.
Though Mahfood, who was accused of misappropriating funds and of having affairs with some of his female employees, was replaced by his brother Robin, the official expressed concern that improper financial dealings might continue.
When asked for indicators of continued problems, he said, "Watch what the archbishop of Miami is going to do. ... To get into these Catholic churches (to fundraise) we're required to be listed in the official directory. And that's at the discretion of the archbishop of Miami."
As the new year began, FFTP saw the resignation of three catholic bishops from its board who'd joined the organization after the scandal hit a year ago. The archbishop of Miami, in whose diocese FFTP is located, revoked the nonprofit's listing from the Official Catholic Directory (OCD, also known as the Kenedy Directory). The archbishop also recommended to pastors in his diocese that they not to allow the FFTP or others not in the OCD to raise funds in their churches.
Prior to the resignations and the removal from the OCD, the archdiocese had approached FFTP about becoming more overtly associated with the Catholic Church.
Founded in 1980, FFTP has been closely associated with Catholic causes -- and still is, in the minds of many donors who learned of the organization through Catholic publications. But in recent years it has chosen to employ a more ecumenical approach to its fundraising.
"They had been listed under the archdiocese ... as a catholic institution," said Mary Ross Agosta, spokesperson for the archdiocese, who added that the nonprofit indicated it did not want to be known as solely a Catholic organization. She said that FFTP expressed its view that, as a nondenominational organization, "they'd do wider good. And they do do good."
"It was a question of basically the archdiocese invited us to become a portion of the Catholic Charities organization." said FFTP spokesperson Ann Briere. "And we declined. I believe the bishops felt that there was not enough control from the archdiocese."
In a statement, Robin Mahfood said the organization regretted any misunderstandings between the organization and the bishops, "as they apparently had expectations that were different from those of the other directors."
And while the organization was "flattered by the invitation to come under the Archdiocese of Miami Mahfood stated, "FFTP is committed to its own tradition as an interdenominational Christian organization that is ecumenical, inclusive and primarily focused on international aid and development."
The first of the bishops who resigned, Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Wenski, was from the archdiocese of Miami. He has expressed concern about how the organization was run. "He felt he had no input to the direction of the organization," according to Agosta, who said the bishop was out of the country and unavailable for comment. "I think Bishop Wenski had concerns with the direction of the board and felt the input of the bishops was not being taken into account."
Dont donate to relief services that promote broad Christianity(ecumenical).
Broad Christianity, specifically the mainline protestant churches are pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion and a whole host of problems.
Dont let your dollars feed the hungry and have heretics feed their souls.
