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.

Catholics Urged to Picket Cdl. Mahony’s Giant Pro-Gay, Pro-Radical-Feminist, Faith-Subverting Dissent-Fest

As Obama Pushes Abortion and “Gay” Agenda, L.A.’s Cardinal Archbishop Hosts Many Speakers Who Undermine Catholic Teachings on Those Issues

 

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 15 /Christian Newswire/ — “Our committee is calling all Catholics to come join us and oppose Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony’s latest dissent-fest,” says Kenneth M. Fisher, chairman of Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc. (CRCOA). “He’s going to make tens of thousands of Catholics hear Faith-subverters, the kind who get people to defy the Church on abortion, homosexuality, contraception, New Age practices and ordination of women.”

Fisher announced that on Saturday, March 20, 2010, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., his group will picket Cardinal Mahony’s annual Religious Education Congress, the world’s largest training event for Catholic schoolteachers.

(The Congress will be at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 18-21. The Saturday protest will be outside the Center’s main exhibit hall. CRCOA will supply picket signs to picketers.)

Fisher said, “Many of the presenters aren’t objectionable, and Cardinal Mahony does have a few well-known ‘token’ orthodox Catholic speakers. But he’s also bringing in speakers with long track records of dissent from Catholic doctrine.”

“Cardinal Mahony’s pro-gays, women-priest advocates, New Agers and anti-Pope rebels will tell Catholic educators what to teach,” Fisher warned. “Then the teachers will go home and infect countless innocent Catholic children with those errors.”

Fisher said CRCOA members will hand out flyers that expose speakers who dissent from the Church’s doctrines. Here are some of Cdl. Mahony’s 188 speakers:

A non-Catholic, far left, pro-contraception speaker who’s said we don’t need to ban aborting babies and who’s advised U.S. senators and representatives on how to get believers to vote for pro-gay, pro-abortion Democrats

A laicized priest who dissents from “a wide range of Church teachings” and wants women priests and women bishops

A nun who called Catholic doctrine against non-marital sex “a fixation.”

A Catholic priest who told the 2005 REC that “we” need “public models” of “healthy gay priests for Catholics to reflect on.”

“Why is Cardinal Mahony promoting such speakers?” Fisher asked. “Shouldn’t a cardinal make sure his speakers are loyal to the Church?”

Fisher invites faithful Catholics to join CRCOA’s peaceful, prayerful protest by calling him at: 714-491-2284 or e- mailing him at: crcoa@dslextreme. com. To get on CRCOA’s group e-mail list, go to: crcoa@aweber. com.
