A liberal endowment fund is handing out big bucks to a Catholic university to indoctrinate future Church leaders.
In tonight's In-Depth Report, Church Militant's Nick Wylie discusses a plan to taint the faith of Hispanic Catholics.
Timothy Matovina, theology chair, University of Notre Dame: "How are we handing on the Catholic faith to the large number of young Latino Catholics, who are the present and the future of the Church in this country?"
The University of Notre Dame is receiving a $7.9 million grant to partner with Boston College in spearheading a Hispanic Catholic initiative.
The Lilly Endowment — a mega fund for liberal causes — issued the grant, helping the universities to "grow U.S. Hispanic Catholic pastoral leaders."
The initiative dubbed "Haciendo Caminos" will also feature 16 other Catholic institutions.
The collaboration seeks to "form at least 100 of the next generation of Hispanic Catholic pastoral leaders in the United States."
One of the institutions, Catholic Theological Union, also received a nearly $1 million grant from Lilly for its plan called "Pathway for Tomorrow: Co-creating the Church of Tomorrow."
The plan seeks to "appeal to young adults ... from LGBTQ+ communities ... to nurture faith formation and help students recognize the connection between religion, discipleship and social change."
Some of the other coconspirators include pro-gay schools like Fordham University, Loyola University Chicago and Santa Clara University.
Notre Dame University advertisement: "Because the university values LGBTQ students in the Notre Dame community, as indeed it values all of its students, the university is committed to fostering an environment of welcome and mutual respect that is grounded in its Catholic mission."
The once-faithfully Catholic Notre Dame advertises that "a variety of programs and initiatives are offered around the areas of sexual identity and gender identity; such initiatives include speakers, retreats, support groups, and other programs, all designed for the support, holistic development, and formation of LGBTQ and ally members of the Notre Dame community."
Boston College boasts, "Through individual support, programming and outreach, we strive to support gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning students and their allies by creating safe and affirming spaces for self-discovery and acceptance around gender and sexuality, building community, and providing education and resources."
Matovina: "These young Latinos — passing on the faith to them is the challenge, is the evangelizing, catechizing, faith challenge of the Church."
If these 100 Hispanics are being formed by fake-Catholic institutions, what kind of future Catholic leaders will they be?
The Lilly Endowment also gave out grants to the archdioceses of Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville.
