Here's another article about Catholic funding from the government.

Because we lobby strenuously for government funding for programs that serve the needs of people, we take seriously any charges that the government may be shortchanging them. For that reason, we want to set the record straight now. And we intend to make sure that this administration and others to follow continue to serve the common good.

This organization lobbies for Catholic funding.

I'm a big separation of church and state person.

That said, I understand the reasoning behind the funding. The religious already had the bones of the aid. Food Banks, counseling, adoption services, etc. With more funding they could expand their assistance.

As long as they held to the rules of other organizations doing the same work I don't really have a problem with it.

In fact, it may have unintended consequences. Perhaps as they are required not to discriminate, etc they will realize that people are people.
