The Bellarmine Veritas Ministry

The Bellarmine Veritas Ministry attracted attention in Catholic circles a few weeks ago for an outstanding report about five recent Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) grantees about which there was “indisputable and conclusive evidence from multiple sources” showing that they were “acting directly in support of grave evils condemned by the Catholic Church.” None of the five, one must point out, are associated with ACORN, which has recently been pulled from the CCHD teat thanks to an embezzlement scandal and numerous incidents of voter fraud. Among the five identified by the Bellarmine Veritas Ministry as supportive of grave evils was the San Francisco based Chinese Progressive Association, which received CCHD funding despite its public support of and legal action on behalf of abortion and same-sex marriage legislation.
