The Shameful Rhetoric of the "Catholic" Family and Human Rights Institute (C-Fam)
Catholics for Equality would like to thank our friends at People for the American Way (PFAW) for making public this disturbing presentation by the "Catholic" Family and Human Rights Institute (C-Fam) at this weekend's CPAC conference in Washington, DC. It's important that our faith community knows exactly what shameful rhetoric is being espoused in our name by C-Fam's president, Austin Ruse.
As reported by PFAW:
Watch the video:
That a group, claiming to be Christian-based, would speak out against efforts to stop the execution of and violence against other human beings is unacceptable. That this group claims to be a Catholic group is beyond shameful!
These are not the teachings of Jesus. These are not the teachings of our church!
It is reprehensible that an organization that claims to fight for "human dignity" would advise governmental leaders to respond to violence and oppression across the globe by preventing the public from learning about it. Is the "Catholic" Family and Human Rights Institute fighting for "human dignity" or the promotion of genocide? One thing is for sure, they should not be allowed to use the name "Catholic."
Please join Catholics for Equality in denouncing this shameful group!
