WND Suddenly Cares About Religious Non-Profits Getting Taxpayer Funds


The Worldnetdaily has suddenly decided that they’re troubled by religious non-profits getting government funding, but only if those religious charities are taking care of refugee children — you know, the 12-year olds with ebola coming here to rape white women and vote Democratic.

Thousands of Central American children crossing the border illegally could soon turn into asylum seekers armed with immigration lawyers provided by church groups and paid for by federal tax dollars.

WND reported Friday that Catholic Charities USA and other religious groups were working behind the scenes with the federal government to temporarily house and resettle the children in dozens of communities across the United States.

Catholic Charities is running a fundraising campaign to help finance the resettlement of the illegal aliens, WND reported. But the religious charities get the bulk of their funding not from private donors or church members putting checks into a basket. They get it from the federal government.

The USCCB is one of nine primary agencies that receive hundreds of millions in U.S. tax dollars to perform their charity work. Under contract with the federal government, the nonprofit groups work to resettle child refugees and asylum seekers. Six of the nine contractors are religious groups, WND has learned, including the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Church World Service and World Relief Corp., which includes a plethora of evangelical groups…

Don Barnett, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, said he would like to see the feds rein in the grants and loans to charities that resettle refugees and UACs seeking asylum.

The federal government gives out not only grants but loans, and the nonprofit charities are able to pocket 25 percent of whatever they collect on those loans, Barnett explained. He said many of the loans are made to refugees or UACs for travel purposes.

They’re fine with government money going to Crisis Pregnancy Centers and religious organizations that develop abstinence-only sex ed programs. But if they’re actually going to help children in need? That’s outrageous!

    This turdbit:

    “In 1988, shortly before a referendum in Arizona to make English the state’s official language, a private memo written by Tanton was leaked to the media. In this memo, he expressed concerns about the potential political, cultural, environmental, and demographic impacts of continued high levels of Hispanic immigration into the U.S., especially if the Hispanic fertility rate remained higher than that of other ethnic groups. He ended by calling for limiting the flow of immigrants to a rate that would enable them to be assimilated. However, several of his questions and statements were provocative, such as: “Will Latin American migrants bring with them the tradition of the mordida (bribe), the lack of involvement in public affairs, etc.?”, “What are the differences in educability between Hispanics (with their 50% dropout rate) and Asiatics (with their excellent school records and long tradition of scholarship)?”, and “On the demographic point: perhaps this is the first instance in which those with their pants up are going to get caught by those with their pants down!”[12]”

    is from here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tanton#Resignation_from_U.S._English)

    Tanton is, I guess, the Ur-Tancredo.

    It’s interesting that he compares the Asian immigrant favorable v the Hispanic immigrant. I wonder how he’d feel if we bordered Vietnam, Korea or another Asian nation?

    To be fair, they are pretty bad. Why, just the other day I was downtown and saw a bunch of them fly around and crap all over the statues there!

    I’m surprised. Not by what WND did but the headline. When I first saw it in FTP Recent my first thought was, “Non-christian non-profits must be getting tax dollars now.” Organizations being humane to children didn’t even cross my mind. So much for WND being pro-life.

    WND *is* pro-life…but only until birth. After that, not so much.

    Babies and young children should be eaten, not given citizenship.

    Yes, but these children all have Ebola and will be voting Democratic. Hence, they should be fed to the thugs as a double-dose of poisonmedicine.

    Hundreds of millions of dollars (annually, I presume)!? That sounded dubious, so I checked. From the 2011 and 2012 Audited Statements (PDF):

    UNITED STATES CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS
    Consolidated Statements of Activities
    Year ended December 31, 2012

    Operating revenues, gains and other support:

      Government contracts and grants revenue (note 3): … 67,862,160

    (“Note 3″ breaks down that c.68M$ further…)

    Wacky Nitwits Deluded gets it wrong — surprise, surprise! — unless they mean in total, rather than yearly.

    Since I used to be an Episcopalian, it looks like it might be time to contribute a bit to the Episcopal Migration Ministries. At least it seems that these religious groups are actually trying to help.
    It seems to me that the RWNJs are missing a chance here. They could do what these groups are doing and make themselves look good, rather than making themselves look so bad.

    Hey Ed – Can The Foundation Beyond Belief raise some money to help those children?

    Further to magistramarla’s plea: another example of the sadly rare occurrence of religious types that aren’t complete assholes see here.

    Announce it and I’m in for a C-note.

    Show me their article calling for world class prenatal care for every pregnant woman and I’ll buy that. It’s not pro life, even in this limited context, as far as i’m concerned, if you refuse to do anything to help make sure the potential babies eventually become actual babies.

    I think the FBB commit all their funds on a quarterly basis but they could add a project that helps these children to the next run.
