WHY WARREN BUFFETT IS ANTI-CATHOLIC
Catalyst March Issue 2012
Recently, Warren Buffett’s comment that the rich should pay higher taxes was enshrined by President Barack Obama as the “Buffett Rule” and drew much applause. What was not discussed was the billionaire’s support for anti-Catholicism. We offered some background information to enlighten the public.
Over several decades, Buffett has spent a fortune funding radical abortion organizations like NARAL and Planned Parenthood; he has lavishly given money to train a new generation of abortion physicians; he has spent millions to help RU-486 (the abortion-inducing drug) to win FDA approval; and he gave his pro-abortion, population-control friends at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation nearly $31 billion in 2006 for more of the same. There’s nothing anti-Catholic about any of this, but when he intentionally seeks to subvert Catholicism by dishonestly funding pro-abortion organizations that have hijacked the Catholic name, that’s another story.
To be specific, Buffett has given millions upon millions over the years to anti-Catholic front groups like Catholics for Choice (formerly Catholics for a Free Choice) and its sister organization in Latin America, Catholics for the Right to Decide. In 2010, the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation alone gave $759,822 to the former, and almost $1.7 million to the latter. These letter-head organizations wouldn’t exist if they depended on donations from members—they don’t have any—they exist because of the likes of Warren Buffett.
Now you know why Warren Buffett has earned the tag anti-Catholic.
