What is it with CAFOD?

I think it's time for the bishops to undertake a root and branch review of CAFOD. After the faithful found out that they had been bankrolling the former director living with his ex-priest, activist and dissident boyfriend for years, and that Cafod was ambiguous, to say the least, in supporting Church teaching regarding condoms, we now learn that the new director, despite earning a significant salary, is living rent-free in the house of a Labour MP - the expenses of which are being paid by the tax-payer.

Surely it is time to clean out Cafod!

If you want further solid reasons not to donate to CAFOD, I strongly urge you to read the following article on Christian Order's website:- "Contributing to CAFOD is a sin". http://www.christianorder.com/editorials/editorials_2005/editorials_jan05.html

People think CAFOD is a Catholic charity in good moral standing.

People are wrong.
