Researchers examining the activities of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and its grantees have raised questions about its connections with a network of community organizing groups involved in homosexual issues and abortion advocacy, including opposition to the Stupak Amendment.
The Reform CCHD Now Coalition’s research was primarily conducted by the American Life League (ALL) and adds to the findings of the Bellarmine Veritas Ministry (BVM), a group which has examined CCHD-funded organizations involved in activities contradicting Catholic teaching.
One group that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has come under fire for supporting is the Center for Community Change (CCC), which was listed on the CCHD website as a group that Catholics could support to help low-income people build “effective organizations that can change their communities and public policies.”
The reference to the CCC was deleted from the CCHD website before noon Tuesday.
