RARE MOVE: Texas Bishop Loudly Critical of the Pope Is Removed - NY Times
CCHD GRANTEE COLLECTS PORNOGRAPHIC LGBTQ BOOKS FOR MINORS - CM
LIVE: Catholic Church Funds LGBT PORN Books for Kids! - Stew Peters Network
What has happened to the Catholic Church? Not the believers, but the leadership.
In one month, we've seen this current woke Pope strip Bishop Strickland of his church in Texas.
This morning we see that Pope Francis is not only trying to remove the biblically based teachings of a Conservative Texas Bishop, but he's freely inviting the Trans community to come visit him.
Just last week, the Lepanto Institute published a report proving that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) recently provided a $45,000 grant to CUSH, which collected pornographic books with the intention of providing them to kids as young as middle school age.
And now, Michael Hichborn, Founder and President of the Lepanto Institute has discovered another grant given by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) to a group that goes completely against the teachings of the bible and Catholic faith; "We Are Unchained".
Unchained was co-founded by husband-and-wife team Emily NaPier and Derek Singletary.
Had the CCHD actually done its due diligence of investigating who they are giving precious Catholic tithings to, it would have been clear very quickly that Emily NaPier Singletary (Derek is incarcerated, serving a 10-year sentence) is affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, is pro-abortion, and promotes homosexual and transgender ideologies.
WHO ARE "WE ARE UNCHAINED" AND HOW DID THEY GET ACCESS TO CATHOLIC TITHINGS?
We Are Unchained was founded by an individual whose ideologies are directly opposed to both Catholic moral and social teaching. She is a self-professed “queer” woman, she is pro-abortion, she promotes transgender and homosexual ideologies, and she celebrates brutal communist dictators and Marxist activists. Her niece is the foundress of a pro-abortion organization that Unchained has supported and promoted.
On what planet is it okay for Catholic tithings to be used to fund a group with this goal and messaging?
“There is no denying that Unchained is an organization that should NEVER have received Catholic funds.", - Michael Hichborn, Lepanto Institute
HOW DETREMENTAL IS THIS TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?
In an interview with SPN TV Hichborn said "This is absolutely detrimental. It's completely undermining what the Church teaches on social and moral matters, on theological matters. And it is causing good faithful Catholics to finance their own enemies. It's the ultimate in betrayal."
Unchained itself is directly tied to Socialist organizations the Democratic Socialists of America and the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Unchained’s Community organizer simultaneously worked for Unchained while acting as Secretary for the Democratic Socialists of America, and this while Unchained was receiving a grant from the CCHD.
One of the DSA duties Unchained’s Community Organizer had was to “facilitate cooperation between Syracuse DSA & other local activist orgs.” Subsequently, Unchained and DSA publicly partnered on several projects.
Concomitant with this, Unchained celebrated Nikeeta Slade by publishing images of her in front of a Karl Marx statue, declaring they “owe her a revolution.”
Finally, Unchained has forged for itself a commitment to fight for homosexual and transgender “rights.”
There is no denying that Unchained is an organization that should NEVER have received Catholic funds, and any competent investigator could have found what we discovered. Once again, this proves that the CCHD’s application, vetting, and ongoing monitoring process is completely broken.
We, the Lepanto Institute, are calling upon all Catholic bishops of the United States to demand a FULL independent, third-party investigation of CCHD grantees and to halt all participation in the CCHD.

Michael Hichborn is the Founder of the Lepanto Institute, which through in-depth investigations and reports holds the Catholic Church accountable when it moves away from its biblical teachings.
Michael has researched and produced an annual report on organizations receiving grant money from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
This annual report, exposing dozens of grantees that are promoting abortion, birth control, homosexuality and Marxism, has led to a nation-wide review of the CCHD and a tightening of its guidelines.
Michael has also conducted research on Catholic hospital systems that are involved in the performance of abortions and sterilizations; he wrote a detailed report on abortion and contraception-providing organizations receiving money from Catholic Relief Services; and produced a detailed report on Obamacare and its danger to women, preborn babies and the elderly.
The Lepanto Institute for the Restoration of All Things in Christ is a research and education organization dedicated to the defense of the Catholic Church against assaults from without as well as from within. Founded in 2014, the Lepanto Institute has exposed several instances of Catholic or Catholic-affiliated organizations being directly involved in events or other matters directly contrary to Church teaching. www.LepantoIn.org
