Well, well. It seems that Development & Peace (D&P) has investigated themselves and come up squeaky clean. According to an article published in Zenit News, the Canadian Catholic fundraising agency of D&P went on a trip to Mexico with some Canadian bishops, for the purpose of investigating the agencies in Mexico they were supplying funds to. Four months ago Lifesite News conducted an investigation into these groups and reported their pro-choice agenda, and accused Development & Peace of supplying funding to pro-abortion groups. That caused a big uproar, and now Archbishop James Weisgerber wants everyone to know that D&P has been vindicated of any wrongdoing.
My memory of what is wrong with D&P goes back a little farther than these last four months, however. I stopped donating to Development and Peace in the year 2000, after they were exposed for donating $140,00 to a radical, feminist, anti-life and anti-family event called the World March of Women.
So, is it a whitewash or have the bishops rapped the knuckles of D&P and made them promise to be more accountable in who they deliver your hard-earned charitable donations to? Either way, I highly doubt that D&P is as squeaky clean as the image they project.
