There must be a special place in Hell for anyone who does evil while proffering themselves as doing the Lord's work.

This is an abomination. All dioceses need to be audited. What would that come under, Vatican-wise--Office of Propagation of the Faith? And, by God, NOT conducted by anyone associated with the AMERICAN Council of Bishops.

The Illinois Leader, an internet newspaper (www.illinoisleader.com), found that 75% of the Catholic priests who vote in the Chicago Archdiocese are registered as Democrats.

This is the legacy of Cardinal Bernardin. He was a powerful and influential individual, both politically and spiritually. James Hitchcock wrote in an article published shortly after the Cardinal’s death that: “He [Bernardin] consistently used his influence to promote liberal causes, even attacks on Church teachings and traditions.” Hitchcock went on to say: “...he consistently used his power to build a network of allies within both the hierarchy and the bureaucracy, a network which in effect has controlled the direction of the ‘American Church’.”
The Bernardin Legacy

A Call to Action The most visible dissenting group which is a movement of laity and religious seeking to reform the "sinful structure" of the "patriarchal" Church. One could call them the "mother of all dissenting groups" - feminist pun intended. CTA is infamous since its 1994 conference coverage on the CBS news program 60 Minutes. CTA promotes dissent against Church teachings on a broad front, including women's ordination, homosexuality, creation spirituality, married priesthood, and liturgical reforms, while incorporating new age and Wiccan spirituality. Bishop Bruskewitz excommunicated those that belong to this group in his Diocese. Many members belong to local  groups called "small faith communities." Renew 2000 also promotes small faith communities. Membership draws heavily from former clergy, feminist nuns, and homosexuals. Members staff COR. CTA serves on the national task force for the We Are Church referendum. Get a more complete understanding of their position from their own information. For a list of their speakers at the 2004 conference, click here.

Thanks for the ping, Nyer!

I hope each freeper will follow the links above and see what leftist groups his particular diocese is funding. Then put the group in google and investigate.

Well, shoot...if I'd seen this last year or the year before...I would have been a richer man today.

Just got our envelope in the mail yesterday. Today I learned that the Detroit diocese sponsors an ACORN chapter. They won't be getting my check this year!

The word on CCHD has to be spread far and wide.

Most of the Bishops are corrupt and compromised.

There are a handful of good guys ike Chaput.

I want to remind all Catholics that it is a mortal sin to vote for a Democrat.

Here's an opportunity to counter these efforts. Follow the link to put non-partisan presidential candidate voter guides into the hands of church-goers in battleground states.

Grassfire is distributing packets of 100 booklets to churches in 10 battleground states. The states we have identified are: Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Nevada, West Virginia, Michigan, New Mexico

Call and ask for your money back.

Send a double message that way.
-- makes them explain themselves
-- gets your money back from ACORN - give it to Swift Vets

Now as a good freeper activist, you should write to your pastor, bishop and to a letter to the editor in both the secular and Catholic Newspapers and tell them to end this garbage campaign. Let everyone know what's going on, you can print a flyer and put on cars parked in the lots of catholic churches in your area.

This is something we all need to do. Expose them.

How about just switching to a church that gives its money away properly?

ACORN in the diocese of Metuchen, March 6, 2003:

A notebook for justice: CCHD and CRS in the diocese
By Father Joe Kerrigan
Director, Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Diocesan directors for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Relief Services met in Washington, DC, Feb. 7-8 as part of the annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering.

Neighboring New Jersey dioceses received national recognition: Peter O’Connor from the Camden Diocese received a CCHD award for his promotion of low-income housing, while a parish delegation from the Archdiocese of Newark was cited by CRS for its work in combating HIV/AIDS.

There may be no Metuchen awards in the offing, but there’s also no shortage of potential accomplishments emerging from the local CCHD and CRS groups. Here’s a quick overview:

Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Preparations continue for the first Metuchen CCHD community-organizing project in close to 20 years. The national neighborhood organizing group ACORN is planning to land soon in Perth Amboy, Carteret and Woodbridge, with an aim at improving low-income housing. Lay leaders from parishes in the three cities are among those helping ACORN strategize. ACORN was selected for a $25,000 local grant in December.

CCHD is the official anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic community, and both local and national funds are available in the areas of community organizing and economic development. To learn more about CCHD, go to www.usccb.org/cchd. The CCHD portion of monies taken up in the recent "winter collection" are divided, with 25 percent available for local grants, and 75 percent going into the national fund.

The national CCHD office is promoting a novel event – a cross-country bike tour — to raise awareness about poverty in the United States. Titled Brake the Cycle, the tour leaves San Francisco June 1, with an anticipated arrival Aug. 1 in Washington, DC. The tour will visit more than 30 dioceses, and although the riders come no closer to Metuchen than the Archdiocese of Baltimore, there are plans for a special Northeast link to the tour. Interested riders, or those who would like to know more about the project, can click on www.brakethecycle.org.

Because that's the route that losers and wimps take. We intent to take our Church back from these scoundrels.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that ours isn't bad. Nonetheless, I don't think the agencies funded by CHD are the best use of our money, and I will make a point of donating to the parish building fund instead!
