Annually, there were 129 million people seen in hospitals in 2011.
Catholic hospitals serve only 5.5 million annually.
Sorry Stinky, that's not 20%.
No they dont. That would be United Way.
Any organization that's harmed as many chilren and DELIBERATELY is STILL hiding it, is one the world could do without.
Have they dont good? Yes. Have they also done great harm? YES.
Ratzi the Nazi not being in charge anymore is a good start at mending their ways.
1. According to your site, Catholic hospitals "serve 5.5 million OVERNIGHT patients annually, and many millions more on an outpatient basis. The Catholic Church is the single largest provider of not-for-profit health care in our country."
Why did you only include overnight patients of Catholic hospitals when comparing to TOTAL number of patients (not just overnight stays) seen at all U.S. hospitals? You're a very intellectually dishonest troll.
You're trying to say only 4% of American patients are seen in Catholic Hospitals? How did you think you could pull that off? Just eyeballing your number makes one see your obvious farse.
One in six patients in America (17%) are seen at Catholic hospitals.
a) The Forbes article you cited lists the largest American charity organizations using the metric 'amount of private donations' for the fiscal year. It did NOT measure how many poor, needy were helped.
Here is all Forbes was saying: United way brought in $3.9 billion in private donations, while Catholic Charities brought in $1.6 billion private donations. Period.
B) I hope you realize that you were trying to compare an organization that serves nationally (United Way) w/ an organization that serves the world.
I'll repeat what I posted previously: Catholic Charities helps more poor, needy, underserved than any other world organization.
Foo, why are you consistently & intentionally dishonest? It not only makes you look like an imbecile, but ultimately harms your cause.
You have ZERO credibility. You are not trustworthy.
