This is an outright lie. They are subordinate to the Holy See ONLY in regards to their member religious, brothers, for whom the Holy See is competent to intervene because of their religious component. Otherwise they are a lay global institution and if a non religious member refuses to abide by Church teaching they are completely free to act without any interference whatsoever by the Holy See. If there is a problem with their religious who take a vow only then is the Holy See competent to act. No such problem exists. The problem with contraceptives was just uncovered this fall by the Lepanto group's private investigation, and they acted within two months, amazing speed for a global institution when such a controversial subject is involved. CRS has been guilty of similar crimes for years and no one has acted.
