In reality, the CCHD has been and remains the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and CCHD officials point out that the organization does not back any initiatives that contradict church teaching—only those that help the poor move out of poverty. All grants go to projects “with objectives and actions that are fully in accord with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church,” the CCHD says. Partisan activity is prohibited, and the local bishop approves every grant.

Catholics who pay attention haven’t been giving money to CCHD.

The truth is that America is run by the Jesuits and it and they are not Catholic so to listen to their ideas about CCHD is absurd.

“America” is a leftist rag that purports to be Catholic, but really is anything but. It leads the way in dissent, and can be relied upon to pimp for a radical agenda. Its approving opinions regarding the CCHD and its beneficiaries are the best proof of the CCHD’s thorough corruption.

They do not speak for the Church, and are increasingly prone to chiding from it since Benedict has become pope. In fact, their previous editor, Thomas Reese, a Jesuit (naturally!) resigned under pressure from the Vatican within a month of Benedict’s assuming the papacy.

For any Catholic at least “trying” to pay attention, America’s POV is worth less than nothing.

“accusations that an ACORN worker tried to file false voter registrations”

Talk about a white-wash. Yeah, it was just an accusation of AN, as in ONE, worker trying to file false voter registrations. Uh huh. One. Yup.

The article loses all credibility right there.
