The Great ACORN Rebellion of 2008: Catholics prepare to protest annual CCHD collection

"Hey buddy, can you spare a..."
…To the Lyrics of: “Hey buddy can you spare a acorn?”

 I Laughed Out Loud…

..when I read the following suggestion on how faithful Catholics are making their voices heard concerning the upcoming Catholic Campaign for Human Development collection slated for November 22-23, 2008.

Roots of the Rebellion 

The idea for what I’ll call here “The Great ACORN Rebellion of 2008” was inspired by a faithful Catholic woman watching Raymond Arroyo on EWTN this week covering the USCCB fall meetings. In the interview he was doing Arroyo showed white envelopes that he’d been receiving since he came on the air. And he opened one of the envelopes that had been addressed “Campaign for Human Development” and inside were, (you guessed it), little Acorns!!!

Below is the short version of the e-mail Hat/Tip I received concerning the protest:  

Okay, folks, this weekend Campaign for Human Development is going to be having a collection for their annual campaign. Since, they have financed many ACORN groups across the country, (over $7 million dollars in the past 8 years), and since ACORN has been heavily exposed in 13 states for Voter Registration Fraud and partisan voting for Pro-Abortion candidates like this last election. I think it is very appropriate to:

1. prepare plain mailing envelopes.  

2. Address the envelopes to Campaign for Human Development.

3. Put your address label on the envelope and place inside your gathered acorns. 

4. Then do your friends a favor and pass out as many addressed envelopes as you can filled with little acorns or information found at the bottom of this page.

5. press it inside the envelope and seal.

6. Finally,  put in the Collection Basket.  It’s that simple.

Thanks!!!

I know you can go to your local park and look for acorns, and if you don’t have any at all, then put some info (below) in your envelope. Sign it and put it in the collection basket this weekend.    

Here’s a question:

When the Catholic Church takes up the collection this November for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, will Catholics in the pew know they are supporting homosexuality, and abortion?

Here’s your chance to inform them… (Please pass this on by linking and forwarding).
