US bishops caught funding radical groups supporting riots, calling for ‘death’ to police

One of the organizations, the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice (NOWCRJ), “received $150,000 from the CCHD over the last three years, including last year’s grant of $50,000.” 

The clenched fist “is a hallmark of Marxist revolution. The third group working to undermine the rule of law in the United States is The People’s Lobby Education Institute, based in Chicago. The CCHD gave $165,000 to the group in the last three years. 

While the CCHD funds radical organizations, the CCHD in turn is funded, as the USCCB points out, “by the generous support of Catholics in the United States, especially through an annual parish collection.”

In a previous investigation, the Lepanto Institute found that “at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies.”

The 2015 investigation looked at several groups funded by the CCHD, giving the reader “an idea of just how Catholic money is being funneled to Communist, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual front groups.”

Statement in response to Catholics for Choice campaign

The misguided campaign of the so-called “Catholics for Choice” organization misrepresents the moral guidance of our Church. The Bishops of the United States, in accord with our Holy Father, Pope Francis, have been unequivocal in proclaiming the dignity of unborn human life. Millions of Catholics in Texas actively live out this teaching in our pro-life ministries and advocacy.
