FRIENDS OF SAINT BENEDICT CENTER IN THE NEWS
The Friends of Saint Benedict Center was in both the Catholic and secular news media this week, warning of an imminent threat to the pro-life integrity of Catholic health care, and exposing episcopal collaboration with an organization which promotes abortion, contraception and sodomy.
On June 23, ChurchMilitant.com published "A Catholic Colony for the Culture of Death," a comprehensive, in depth look by FOSBC Communications Director C. J. Doyle at the impending take over of Catholic health care in New Hampshire by the Granite State's largest and most notorious perpetrator of abortions, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health. As Doyle pointed out, this secularist acquisition of a Catholic hospital is being implemented with the personal approval of Manchester Bishop Peter Libasci.
Also on June 23rd, a news release issued by the Friends of Saint Benedict Center, criticizing Bishop Libasci for committing diocesan funds to the pro-abortion United Way of Greater Nashua, was published, in its entirety, by The Rochester Voice, under the title "Friends of Saint Benedict decry church funding of abortion enabling groups." The FOSBC was the only Catholic voice in New Hampshire to expose the scandal of using money collected from the faithful to subsidize an organization which funds abortion advocacy.
The FOSBC wishes to extend its thanks to ChurchMilitant.com and to The Rochester Voice for their timely coverage of these latest episodes in a long succession of disturbing scandals in the troubled Diocese of Manchester under the problematic leadership of Bishop Peter Libasci.
