EWTN Catholic Q&A
Question from Jonathan on 07-09-2013:

Hi Judy,

I wrote to my diocesan office regarding why we should not donate to CRS, including a link to the story about them distributing condoms. The office forwarded my email to Msgr. Joseph J. Kerrigan, director, Catholic Charities Solidarity Team. Here's his response: CRS has ably responded to the false allegations. One example: http://newswire.crs.org/crs-upholds-catholic-teaching-and-values-3/

For 70 years, and continuing through the current crisis in Syria and elsewhere, CRS has represented -- in word and action -- the very best of Catholic social doctrine.

Please read the article and see what you think.

Thank you,

Dear Jonathon

Please read my latest, documented commentary on CRS which I find full of reasons NOT to donate to them: "The scandal within Catholic Relief Services" http://www.all.org/article/index/id/MTIyMzc/
