Catholic League slams Ford Foundation for supporting anti-Catholic groups

.- The Ford Foundation has established a new policy, barring beneficiaries from engaging in any activity that “promotes violence, terrorism, bigotry, or the destruction of any state.”

But the Catholic League says this policy is hypocritical since the foundation has been funding at least one anti-Catholic group for decades.

“The Ford Foundation has long violated its newly established restrictions by lavishly funding the most anti-Catholic organization in the United States, Catholics for a Free Choice,” Catholic League president William Donohue pointed out. 

“Thus, for the Ford Foundation to now insist that its recipients forswear a commitment to bigotry is rank hypocrisy,” said Donohue. “Catholics for a Free Choice has been bashing the Catholic Church for decades, and could not do so without the support of the Ford Foundation.”

The American Civil Liberties Union has decided to reject funding from the Ford Foundation because it objects to the new restrictions.
