.... and the USCCB should be disbanded.
Is it too much to hope for that Hannah Giles was somehow involved in this sting?
Good for whoever did this sting operation!

>> This means that the scandal of CCHS grant-making is not just the problem of the USCCB staff, it is the problem of all the bishops who sign off on funding for groups like the Los Angeles Community Network in their dioceses. <<
I wonder if this isn’t precisely the problem:
1. The Washington-based staff finds a list of local “social justice organizations,” including local ACORN chapters from 3rd-party sources they encountered through their (typically left-wing) social and business networks.
2. Not familiar with the local groups, they submit left-wing groups willy-nilly, figuring the local bishop has to approve any groups they’d send to.
3. The local bishop receives the list and rubber stamps it, figuring he has no basis to overrule Washington.
4. The recipients of the funds then join the list of trusted sources for Washington to get proposals for.
At my parish there is a collection before communion as usual. Then at the conclusion of mass there is a second collection for parish expenses like utilities, repairs, snow plowing etc. I have been doing just the second collection to make sure no money goes to the diocese and gets funneled into craziness like this.
social justice has become a key code word for Marxism
It is a cancerous rot that must be removed (along with all liberal rot) from all Christian groups in order for the Gospel to flourish one again.
