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.
