First, thanks to Catholic Culture for bringing this to light. It is they who highlight this "Bridging Refugee Youth and Children's Services" initiative. The training manuals (to which the Catholic Culture page links) are copyrighted by the USCCB and give politically-correct yarn about dealing with kids who are "gay and transgendered". While they are quick to denounce any harassment, they say absolutely nothing about sound Christian morality and the importance of quitting these deviant behaviors. Remember - the USCCB is putting their "stamp of approval" to this.
The larger picture, in my opinion, is that the USCCB has started this initiative - with a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. The latter, of course, is overseen by pr-abort cino Kathleen Sebelius. Might this be a factor in the rather tepid response of the USCCB towards the abortion-laden Obamacare?
