Thanks to my friend at Les Femmes I was alerted to this news. Two days ago Randy Engel published a piece in Renew America detailing how the Vatican bureaucracy has hired several consulting firms that have loudly promoted homosexual acts and lifestyles. I link now to her article and urge you to read it.
There can be no doubt that those Vatican officials responsible for retaining these firms knew of these firms' stances on this most serious of moral issues. Neither can they claim ignorance of the credibility that they lend to these firms that are cooperating with mortal sin. This is nothing new for progressive bureaucracies within the Church. Recall the recent scandals regarding Catholic Relief Services. Recall that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development has as its unspoken aim the diversion of Catholic dollars to atheistic and anti-life organizations. Just six months ago, this blog disclosed that Sister Carol Keehan, the Obamacare promoter par excellence, sits on the Finance Council of the Archdiocese of Washington.
If we wonder why the Church's moral voice seems like a pitiful squeak, this article points out one key reason.
