I am a client with this organization and I can't believe that they will close their doors next year because the government in my province cannot cough up a mere $200,000 to support what is a superb resource for male survivors. What's worse is that my government found it fit to fund a CATHOLIC organization to the tune of $2 million to provide the services instead. Am I the only one who sees the irony in this?? Like I said its outrageous.

Yes. it's outrageous. Faith-based still gets funded. Secular is on it's own (sometimes even demonized). Same in the USA.

No. You are not the only one that finds it ironic... and I agree. It's outrageous, AND disgusting.

While I am not a survivor of clergy abuse there are guys in my therapy group who are and wouldn't go within a mile of a catholic organization for any reason, let alone for support for sexual abuse. This decision on behalf of my government is just too twisted to believe.
