Scandalous Behavior: Why Is a Catholic Organization Funding Abortion Groups? And Why Are the Bishops Letting Them Do It?

Being an evangelical, I'm not up to speed with all of the scandalous behavior of renegade Catholics (with cats like Campolo, Wallis, and the gang of hyped-up prosperity preachers on TV, we've got plenty of our own albatrosses to deal with). But I did come across this compelling video clip yesterday which is of importance to all pro-lifers. It details a truly outlandish scandal involving the promotion of abortion by the Canadian Catholic organization, Development & Peace, as well as a really sad tangle of lies, cover ups, hypocrisy, and, worst of all, what certainly appears to be cowardice and complicity from the powers that be.

The clip is about 8 and 1/2 minutes (only video, no audio commentary) but it's of importance.

Then after watching it, you may want to send a note to express your opinions on the issues it raises. Like perhaps, an e-mail to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops who continue to deny D&P's contributions to abortion organizations despite the mountain of evidence.
