The U.S. bishops' social justice arm has cut funding to a New York-based AIDS charity after the group was discovered to have lied about its adherence to Catholic teaching.
The Campaign for Catholic and Human Development announced that it had dissociated with the NYC Aids Housing Network after allegations surfaced that the group distributes condoms.
“Just to clarify, when CCHD funded the group, the group was totally in line with CCHD criteria and guidelines,” the U.S. bishops' conference said in an Oct. 19 post on Facebook.
“It is the more recent reports that they distribute condoms that would make them ineligible for the future funding. The group did not reapply for funding once their grant ended.”
