Bishops’ CCHD Grants Pro LGBT Ignatian Solidarity Network $750,000

Lepanto Institute, Michael Hichborn: Over the summer, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), an anti-poverty program run by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), provided a $750,000 Strategic National Grant to the Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN).  Shortly after the June announcement of the grant, the Lepanto Institute reported that the ISN regularly held workshops promoting homosexual and transgender activism.  In response to concerned Catholics regarding the promotion of sexual perversion from ISN’s workshops – which included presentations by same-sex “marriage” advocacy organizations like New Ways Ministry and Dignity USA – the USCCB’s Communications Manager for Social Mission, Alexandra Carroll claimed that ISN “was not encouraging or promoting anything contrary to Catholic teaching.” Report is here.
