Traditional Catholics Need to Think Very Hard Before Giving Any Money to Organized Secular "Charities"
Many Organized "Charities" Support Abortions and Other Immoral Purposes
Or Spend the Bulk of Donations on Bureaucracy
A Case in Point: The Boy Scouts of America
Having Gone "Gay" in 2015, Have Gone All the Way to "Transgender"
Now Girls Calling Themselves "Boys" Are Being Admitted to Boys-only Programs
A Traditional Catholic's First Obligation Is to the Local Church, Chapel, or Oratory
That Provides the Fully Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments
Let Others Contribute to Secular Groups
A case in point. The Boy Scouts of America will now admit girls who claim to be boys ("transgendered") into its boys-only programs, according to an announcement on January 30, 2017. The "Boy" Scouts will use a false sex if the child or parent lies on the application to become a scout. The Boy Scouts previously had a policy that relied on the sex listed on a child's birth certificate for those programs. The false-sex decision goes into effect immediately.
Parents of real Boy Scouts are up in arms. In in Secaucus, New Jersey, an 8-year-old child had been asked to leave his Scout troop after parents and leaders found out he was in fact a girl. But the "Boy" Scouts knuckled under to political correctness, as they have already done for "gay" children and for "gay" adults, who since July 2015 can be Scout leaders or employees. So much for being "morally straight" in the Boy Scout oath! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, to what organizations should you give your donations? The answer is easy: to the local church, chapel, or oratory that provides you with the fully Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments. That is your highest obligation. Let others contribute to organized secular groups. By giving to your local fully Traditional Latin Mass site, you can see how your money is being spent. When you give to large organized "charities," your money is eaten up for immoral purposes at worst and for bureaucracy at best. If you want to give personal charity, hand the money directly to the needy person, not some intermediary organization, and give him a holy card to go along with the money!
