Vatican bans donation from condom makers

The Vatican has advised a Filipino bishop to reject any kind of donation from any company or institution that promotes a culture of abortion and contraception as it is “morally evil.”

Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, said that such donation compromises the gospel and the family and life.

The Vatican official issued the exhortation in a letter to Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes who sought the Vatican stand on donations coming from companies and institutions promoting the use of contraceptives.

“Accepting such funding creates confusion among the faithful, as they give the impression that abortion, and the production, distribution, and use of contraceptives and abortifacients are acceptable practices,” the cardinal said.
This really sounds like a slippery slope to me. Especially after what happened with the misinformed monsignor in Arkansas who told his churchgoers to stop giving to the Susan G. Komen Foundation because he thought they were supporting Planned Parenthood's abortion work.
If the Vatican is really interested in avoiding "confusion among the faithful" then maybe they should... ah nevermind.

Why is it a "slippery slope" if a charitable organization adheres to their principal beliefs at the cost of reducing donations? There is a price to pay for either decision.
