CCHD 2010 — Keep up the boycott!

In June LifeSiteNews reported on ten dioceses opting out of the bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the “charity” that funds groups supporting abortion and other activities anathema to Catholic teaching. The group has a history of advancing leftwing causes and politicians. In fact, leftwing politics played a large part in the beginning of CCHD when Saul Alinsky and Msgr. Jack Egan hatched a plan to get their hands in the pockets of Catholics in the pew for their socialistic version of “social justice.” The Reform CCHD Coalition sent a report to all the bishop prior to their June meeting listing the continued problems with the group. You can see the press release here and the PDF report here. The Coalition documents 50 CCHD recipients that have links to positions in opposition to Church teaching.

As of June ten bishops had publicly opted out of CCHD. Here’s the list:

Bishop Joseph Adamec – Altoona-Johnstown, Pennsylvania
Bishop Robert J. Baker – Birmingham, Alabama
Bishop John O. Barres – Allentown, Pennsylvania
Bishop Lawrence Brandt – Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz – Lincoln, Nebraska
Bishop Victor Galeone – St. Augustine, Florida
Bishop Robert C. Morlino – Madison, Wisconsin
Bishop Kevin Rhoades (formerly) – Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Bishop David Ricken – Green Bay, Wisconsin
Bishop Edward J. Slattery – Tulsa, Oklahoma

CCHD has refused to release the list of 2010 grantees until AFTER the November Collection. The message is — “Trust us!” Anybody who does is like the Gingerbread Boy who let the fox swim him across the river. Here’s what Mike Voris has to say about the upcoming collection. As for “the insider” I think I know who he is and he definitely knows of what he speaks. CCHD is a fraud and no informed Catholic would give to this bogus collection. Pass it on.

  1. Trust me, the CCHD will not be receiving any of my money (the little I actually have). As soon as I found those envelopes tucked in with the regular Sunday envelopes for the parishes I attend (I am a grad student and I have a home parish and a parish that I am a member of while at school) and I ripped both envelopes up and symbolically threw them in the garbage where they belonged. They are now in the dumpster behind the apartment building with the rest of the trash.

  2. Hi James,

    Alinsky’s IAF attempted to infiltrate 12 parishes in Oklahoma City recently. A spontaneous inter-parish coalition repelled the incursion in 7 parishes, prompting our archbishop to intervene and save the IAF at the remaining 5 parishes. There was a big campaign to raise donations for the CCHD this weekend, but for unexplained reasons, the collection was cancelled. Some thing is a foot. Have you heard anything?
