Catholic Relief Services SCAM Exposed

This just in from our friends at LifeSiteNews:

BALTIMORE, Maryland , October 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholic Relief Services facilitated the distribution of more than two million units of various types of contraception, including abortifacients, in the Democratic Republic of Congo over the course of four years, the Lepanto Institute says in a new report.

The program resulted in skyrocketing birth control use in the region where previously residents had minimal knowledge of contraception, says Lepanto.

The US Bishops’ international relief agency was an implementing partner from 2006 to 2010 in the US-funded Project AXxes, in which “family planning” was a “key objective,” delivering contraception, including abortifacients, Intra Uterine Devices (IUD) and related insertion kits, and also surgical sterilization kits, according to the program documents.

REMNANT COMMENT: Right! So, every year the Catholic faithful are required to slog through Catholic Relief Sunday, where sermons (sorry, 'homilies') panhandling for Catholic Relief Services assure them that God needs their support of the charlatans over at CRS.

This year they really laid it on thick, telling Catholics that donating to CRS actually "helps Jesus in disguise."  I'll say! – if the Jesus Who’s out there promoting condoms and abortions is anything at all, He's deep under cover. In fact, maybe it’s not Jesus under there at all. Maybe it's just the ghost of Margaret Sanger pretending to be Jesus.

Anyway, you know what? We're quite done here.  Not another penny.  In fact, the next time any priest—following his bishop's order, no doubt—comes into the pulpit to insult the intelligence of his flock by claiming that CRS is doing "God's holy work" let's simply stand up and walk out, families in tow. 

Maybe, in the case of some of the good priests who agree with us on this scam, we can prevail upon them to walk out with us. (Wouldn’t that be fun?)

Really, enough already!  It will be a cold day in Hell before they get any more money from us. In fact, they'll have to pry it from our cold, dead fingers.

Have a nice day, Your Excellencies. Or, as Jesus might say: Repent now... or go to hell!
