The Canadian funding of a Mexican human rights organization was cut following a letter from the archbishop of Mexico City that directly accuses the Jesuit-founded body of supporting pro-abortion groups.
The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (D&P) cut the funding for Centro PRODH, whose director recently had speaking engagements cancelled in Ottawa and Cornwall, after Mexican Cardinal Norberto Carrera said the organization “does NOT represent the sentiments of the Church and has been characterized by its support and encouragement of groups and activities that are an affront to Christian values.” “With respect to the theme of defence of life, the organization has supported pro-abortion groups and promoted the purported woman’s right over her body, against unborn life,” said a translation of the letter obtained by The Catholic Register.
Carrera’s letter was sent to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, which two years ago cleared Centro PRODH of similar accusations.
Well, that’s that. Finally, at long last, we have a bishop who’s got the nuts to call as it is, instead of all this diplomatic yogurt we’ve been force-fed by CanChurch for the past two years. The steak tastes good, I must say.
Centro PRODH spokeswoman Francesca Allodi-Ross denies the charge, telling The Catholic Register “we have never worked on that issue.”
“Bullkaka”, as they say in Spanish. Catholics for the Right to Decide scrubbed their website of Fr. Arriaga’s direct involvement with their organization after we outted his involvement with them.
Well, all in all, I think this is a positive development for all of us bloggers who have had a “radicalizing and at times divisive impact on social as well as ecclesial discourse and relations“. CanChurch needs a new program because the Mexican Church is not putting up with the lies and smooth talking anymore. And good for them! We’re with the Cardinal!
It’s time to get radical and divisive. There’s a time for all seasons under the sun. And now is a time for war. So, Vamanos!, let the revolución begin!
