Catholic Relief Services Vice-President is in a Gay ‘Marriage’, Promotes Gay Agenda

A vice president for Catholic Relief Services is legally married to his homosexual partner—and everyone knows it.

This shocking expose of the bishops' national charity arm is a tragic reminder to all Catholics to avoid all instruments of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  The staff of that organization has been thoroughly infiltrated by heterodox enemies of the Catholic Church and the fruit of its work is rotten to the core.
Catholic Relief Sodomite Rick Estridge
Church Militant has learned that an open homosexual is one of the TOP employees at Catholic Relief Services—and he's married to his longtime male partner.

Rick Estridge is Vice­ President of Overseas Finance at Catholic Relief Services, the United States Bishops' beleaguered anti­-poverty program. And according to official marriage records, he is also civilly married to his long-time gay partner William Daniel Goretsas, Jr.

Their wedding license is dated April 4, 2013, issued by the city of Baltimore over two years ago and during the same year Maryland legalized sodomite marriage.

The Scandal Within Catholic Relief Services

By Judie Brown

Catholic Relief Services’ history is not a pretty one, so the most recent news really comes as no surprise. 

President Barack Obama has appointed one of his former donors, Ken Hackett, to represent our nation as ambassador to the Vatican. Hackett is the immediate past president of Catholic Relief Services; he served in that post for 40 years.

Thinking about the irony of this connection between Obama and Catholic Relief Services begs the question: How can a Catholic charity align itself with the president of the United States? This is a man whose commitment to abortion, same-sex marriage, and contraception for teens—to name but a few of his policy choices—is a matter of record. The answer is that apparently CRS and its leadership prefer alliances with the government and the taxpayer dole to stalwartly defending Catholic truth.

Catholic Relief Services Gave Over $13 Million to Pro-Abortion Group in 2012

As the U.S. Bishops’ development agency was taking heat last summer for handing out over $5 million to the abortion-supporting group CARE, they were in the midst of giving a total of $13.8 million in grants to the same pro-abortion group during 2012, according to its recently-published IRS filings

While CARE claims it “does not fund, support or perform abortions,” in 2009 its president and CEO, Helene Gayle, appeared before a Senate committee to urge the funding of abortions abroad by overturning the Mexico City Policy. CARE also heavily distributes contraceptives, including the abortifacient “emergency contraception,” as part of its development efforts.  Moreover, it partners with the illegal-abortion practitioner Marie Stopes International.
