Michael Hichborn and the Lepanto Institute do very important but very unglamorous work exposing the unfortunate truth about the evils directly and indirectly supported by too many supposedly Catholic charities.
Recently, Lepanto reported on the Salesian Missions support for programs that directly contradict Catholic teaching. As is typical, they received a response that tries to demonize Lepanto rather than directly refuting irrefutable facts. Laughably, Salesian Missions has employed CRS, a terrible offender in this area and a charity unworthy of any faithful Catholic’s support, in their defense.
And the weak response of the Salesians and the follow up can be seen at the Lepanto Institute. Please go check it out.
