It’s more along the lines of each bishop is responsible for authorizing a collection at each parish, and forwarding the proceeds to the CCHD headquarters. He is also going to be in the decision-making loop for any direct dispersals within his diocese.

I suspect, but certainly cannot prove, that many bishops have the wool pulled over their eyes as to the real motivations behind CCHP and its beneficiaries. Of course, many of those bishops aren’t exactly looking very hard, and some of them simply do not want confirmation of what they’ve heard by way of “rumor,” so it might be more important than ever for Catholics in the pews to saturate the collections with evidence along the lines of the article heading this thread.

I would suppose that only a relatively small number (maybe 10%) of the bishops actively support CCHP while having full knowledge of what they’re up to. Most of them seem to think it’s rather benign, and seem “shocked” about its ACORN connection. Bombarding them with the evidence this Sunday should help square them away in that regard.

If so, maybe next year we can celebrate the liquidation (or at least the complete severing of ties with the Catholic Church) of this odious coven of evildoers.

Another thing is that bishop’s often relegate responsibility. Just like the pope they can’t be everywhere at once.

I doubt this. It seems apparent that as long as a "social justice" organization stays away from abortion they will get their support. The problem the bishops are finding is that once the congregation has been infected with this "social justice" thinking the congregation won't listen to them on other issues. It was evident in this last election.

Not likely, conservatives are a minority in the RCC.

If it's any consolation, conservatives are not nearly the majority in Evangelical churches as they once were.
