Activism in the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
"Family Builders by Adoption"
VICTORY! On June 30, 2009, the Catholic Charities/Family Builders by Adoption partnership was dissolved. Valerie Schmalz covered the announcement in the October 12 issue of "Our Sunday Visitor" , and the October 17, 2008 issue of "Catholic San Francisco" (PDF 5MB, page 12) confirmed Ms. Schmalz's story.
The CCCYO/FBA partnership was one of the motivations for the construction of this website, and we are happy about any part we may have played in the ending of this disastrous affair. (A quick rundown of the development of the partnership can be found here).
The Catholic San Fancisco story claimed that the partnership was only intended to last for three years--a claim that we have debunked here.
the dissolution, Catholic Charities' website continued to
link to Family Builders as a recommended adoption agency
right through August 11, 2009--when FBA was caught
adverstising for adoptive "parents" on the s/m webpage of
the Bay Area Reporter and the "porn" page of the San
Francisco Bay Times. After that was revealed, Catholic
Charities pulled the link. Let's hope that's the last we
hear of the regrettable partnership between Catholic
Charities and Family Builders by Adoption.
Catholic Charities CYO (CCCYO) of San Francisco the
activists have sought to normalize homosexual relationships,
and to place them on a level of equality with marriage and
natural families. They have proceeded incrementally, and
have been successful.
first step was
get the Archdiocese of San Francisco to recognize the
same-sex domestic partners of CCCYO employees as
equally deserving of benefits as are the married spouses of
employees. This was in 1997.
was followed by allowing homosexual couples to adopt
through CCCYOs adoption network. This began as early
was CCCYOs supplying staff to Family
who call themselves the gayest adoption agency in
the country. In 2006-07, at the time the
partnership between CCCYO and "Family Builders" was formed,
the point of contention was "Family Builders" open role in
making children available to homosexual individuals, and how
CCCYO could square this with church doctrine. On November
12, 2007 these words were on the "Gay & Lesbian
Adoptions" page of their website:
ability of gay and lesbian individuals to adopt is affected
by each states adoption statues. While several states
prohibit gay and lesbian families from adopting, happily,
that is not the case in California."
"Family Builders" has moved beyond even this. We now find
this sentence on
the state of California, lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender individuals have the same rights as anyone to
adopt a child."
money from special Church Mass collections for Catholic
Charities (an annual event in the Archdiocese) will not only
support homosexual adoptions, but "transgender" adoptions as
July 23, 2007 CCCYO hosted its annual AIDS Housing
entertainer was a well known San Francisco transvestite
Donna Sachet. This may seem like a small thing,
but it isnt. Sachet is a serious homosexual activist,
who, among other things, serves on the Board of Directors of
a group that is trying to legalize homosexual marriage in
California. By inviting a transvestite who has appeared at
numerous obscene homosexual & sado-masochistic functions
(including at Most Holy Redeemer), CCCYO is showing that
they no longer feel they need to hide, or attempt to find a
secondary justification for, their affinity for the
homosexual activist agenda.
This didn't just happen.
Catholic Charities has staff members at the highest levels,
who are not only aware of, but are part of, the homosexual
activist network. When an organization gets over 60%
($20,525,272 in 2006-07) of it's operating revenue in the
form of government contracts, you'd better believe
politicians will call the tune. That does not mean Catholic
Charities disagrees with the tune. It does mean that
pressure from the outside coupled with strategically placed
decision makers on the inside produces results like domestic
partners benefits and homosexual/ transgender adoptions.
