A watchdog group is taking issue with a Catholic grant to an organization that might be violating its own criteria.
The Lepanto Institute recently completed a profile on the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition. Lepanto president Michael Hichborn tells OneNewsNow his concern is that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is providing a $35,000 grant to the Coalition.
"[The Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition is] actively engaged in the promotion of homosexuality activism," says Hichborn. "It's pushing this thing called the Gay-Straight Alliance [and] it actually formed its own Gay-Straight Alliance through one of its projects."
In addition, according to the Lepanto leader, one of the executive staff members of the Coalition signed a petition advocating same-sex "marriage" in New York.
