Let’s look at Catholic Charities as a whole. We see the majority of contributions going towards pro-abort candidates (there are a few pockets of sanity in that list). Most notably, we see that Msgr John Enzler, president and CEO of Catholic Charities, gave $250 to pro-abortion John Delaney last November and Kathleen Matthews a few months prior. In addition to being pro-abortion herself, Matthews is the wife of Chris Matthews.
There’s more to this Enzler-Matthews situation than meets they eye. Let me recall some history. Msgr John Enzler was pastor of Blessed Sacrament in DC. It sits on the south side of Western Avenue. On the north side is Chevy Chase MD. I think it was in the very early part of 2012 that he left Blessed Sacrament to take the reins of Catholic Charities. In February, despite our many pleas, Chris Matthews did a book-signing at Blessed Sacrament. The timing of the event was such that caused us to believe that the invitation to Matthews occurred while Enzler was still at Blessed Sacrament. At any rate, we were there when Matthews appeared and we protested quite unmistakably. See here for some reports on that. So now we can see what appears to be a rather cozy relationship between the CEO of Catholic Charities and a prominent pro-abortion “katholyc” couple.
Looking at Just Faith, we see that the little that was contributed went to Barack Obama and John Kerry. Put the word “Jesuit” in the employer box and you’ll see that most of their recipients are pro-aborts, with a few pockets of sanity sprinkled throughout.
There are a number of people named “Charles Short” on this page, but the one of interest is in Rockville, MD. Currently Special Assistant to the County Executive, he was a director of social concerns for the Archdiocese of Washington. He recently gave money to pro-abortion Chris Van Hollen as the latter runs for the Senate seat being vacated by Barbara Mikulski.
Let’s look at contributions from those who draw paychecks from [the “re-Catholicized”] Catholic University of America. Stephen Schneck is the Director of the Institute for Policy And Catholic Studies at CUA – at least he was at one time. In addition to his many other lapses of judgment, he has seen fit to donate solely to pro-abortion politicians. Why on earth was he ever put in a position where he could corrupt young Catholic minds?
Until very recently, Barbara Early was an associate professor of social work at Catholic University of America. As you can see at this link, she contributed a total of $1500 to Obama/Biden and four months ago to Clinton/Kaine. Leah Wortham, a law professor, has contributed thousands to Obama/Biden throughout the years. Eric Jenkins, another professor, gave $2000 to John Kerry.
These people are so-called “movers and shakers” in the “social justice” crowd within the US hierarchy. As we see where they literally put their money, we get a clear indication regarding their not-so-hidden socialistic and anti-God mindsets. Their “social justice” is not Catholic by any stretch of the imagination.
