    This post is dedicated to Dr. Chuckles.

    The following shows that while there is a financial relationship between the Catholic Church and the Catholic Charities Organization. The CCO is the principal owner of the chain of hospitals that was cleared of malpractice claims...and is apparently NOT legally OWNED by the Catholic Church. There is a very clear legal distinction between the Catholic Church and the CCO.

    Catholic Charities received a total of nearly $2.9 billion from the US government in 2010. In comparison, its annual revenue was $4.67 billion. Only about $140 million came from donations from diocesan churches, the remainder coming from in-kind contributions, investments, program fees, and community donations.
    Catholic Charities USA

    So it appears that the US Government provides about half of the funding the organization in the form of grants or the like. The government sure gets around, huh? They provide a huge financial support to both Planned Parenthood and the Catholic Charities Organization. They are all just one big happy family, so it seems.

    Catholic Charities USA is not the organisation involved in this specific case. It is instead a group named Catholic Health Initiatives

    While I can't comment on the specifics of either groups relationship with the govt, I don't really think the govt should be choosing what organizations they involve themselves with, especially at the charity and community service level, based on their politics.

    I'm not sure how these organizations are actually funded. If it's a direct function of Congress, which when it comes to money, they are also involved, then I would agree. If these Organizations are filling for grants in order to obtain federal assistance...then I would want to know a bit more about the grant programs.
