Raymond Arroyo on World Over Last Friday on EWTN that the Bishop in charge of the CAMPAING FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT said that no monies were given to ACORN.
When Arroyo questioned the Bishop, the bishop agreed that while the monies in fact are fungible and could be used for the ACORN project.
The best thing that anybody can do is to not donate to the CAMPAIN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT this Sunday, November 23, 2008.
Since money is fungible, there is a good possibility that the Diocese will assess the parish for the monies that are not collected from their regular collections. There is a precedent for this action in the diocese of Atlanta. When Archbishop Wilton Gregory does not collect enough money for his ANNUAL BISHOPS APPEAL. The Parish is assesed for the monies that are not donated to the Diocese from their regular collections which represents 70% of the weekly collections. Archbishop Wilton Gregory gets 30% of our weekly support to the Parish.
Remember these Bishops and Cardinals with the exception of a few Bishops like Martino nare politicians and they want to advance their careets and be included in the social Cirles like Obama, Ted Kennedy, Bob Casey Jr, and the other Pro Abortion Politicians.
I have an idea: The Penny Protest.
Put one penny in an envelope, with a note, stating that as long as Catholic bishops and priests continue to refuse to speak out and do nothing to excommunicate pro-abortion politicians, they will not get more than that one penny a week.
Four pennies a month should get their attention. Spread the idea around to your Catholic friends!
