    Washington D.C., Feb 2, 2010 / 07:48 pm (CNA).- Researchers examining the activities of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and its grantees have raised questions about its connections with a network of community organizing groups involved in homosexual issues and abortion advocacy, including opposition to the Stupak Amendment. The Reform CCHD Now Coalitionís research was primarily conducted by the American Life League (ALL) and adds to the findings of the Bellarmine Veritas Ministry (BVM), a group which has examined CCHD-funded organizations involved in activities contradicting Catholic teaching.

    Catholic Campaign for Human Development Still Funding Abortion Promoter by Deal W. Hudson    1/11/10 Only a few months ago, it was revealed that the Catholic Campaign for Human Development was funding organizations actively promoting abortion and same-sex marriage. As a result, several organizations were defunded, and the CCHD was declared back on track. But with regard to at least one CCHD grantee, The San Francisco Organizing Project (SFOP), that doesn't appear to be the case. Last fall, Bellarmine Veritas Ministry caught SFOP receiving a $200,000 grant for a clinic offering both birth control and emergency contraception.CCHD and the Archdiocese...

    Growing up, I always thought Jesus' admonition in the Book of Matthew, "The poor you will always have with you," wasn't meant to be taken literally as a directive to ignore the poor, but that's exactly what a prominent Roman Catholic charity believes. As this Sunday's "second collection" approaches, most Catholics planning to donate to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development probably think their money will be used to help the poor by funding soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Well, the joke's on them. CCHD has never provided direct relief to the poor. That's not its purpose. It is an...

    The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the Plymouth Duster of the U.S. Bishops Conference, a relic of early-1970s social activism that -- except for its value as a fashion statement -- was a disappointment when it was launched and hasn't improved with age. Yesterday we were given our official annual spadeful of the 40-year-old rhetoric: The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) distributed more than $9.5 million in grants to local organizations working to overcome poverty in the United States. The 2007, grants, totaling $9,578,000, will be used by 314 projects in 46 states, the District of Columbia and...

    "Where is the Money?" Where is the Outrage?? by:†Tom McClusky The Washington Post today has an article on how protestors are currently in†Washington to protest that the federal government isn't providing the victims enough money (presumably because they believe President Bush created the storm with his weather controlling machine.)† The Post article certainly romanticizes the protestors: "They came to Washington yesterday from temporary housing, from apartments in Houston, hotel rooms in Dallas and spare bedrooms in cousins' homes. They came to say that the only place they really want to go is home."† What the Post fails to mention is...

    Federal Social Programs and Catholic PrinciplesOne of the fundamental differences between the ďliberalĒ and ďconservativeĒ mentalities, at least in the United States, is the penchant of one for glorifying social programs and the other for glorifying capitalism and a free market system. Over the decades, but particularly today, politicians on both sides court the Catholic vote. The Catholic who votes liberal because of the social programs that are the legacy of 60-plus years of American socialization does so out of a sense of obligation. The argument is that the welfare system and other similar systems promoting social equality are more...

    The Democratic, pro-abortion front group, ACORN, has received millions of dollars raised during Catholic Masses. Each year, the Catholic Bishop's Campaign for Human Development gives hundreds of thousands of dollars to ACORN. ACORN is a far left organization that was recently implemented in several outragous cases of voting fraud. What can we do to stop this? Can freepers launch an effort to block this with the help of Catholic bloggers? The collection for the Campaign for Human Develoment is in a couple of weeks. Now is the time to strike!

    http://www.illinoisleader.com GUEST OPINION: The Catholic Campaign to Help Democrats Wednesday, November 05, 2003 †-†by George Kocan, Warrenville Catholic activist OPINION -- Every Sunday before Thanksgiving Day, the Catholic bishops collect money at Mass for their Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). Curiously, the CCHD prohibits giving money to organizations that actually feed, clothe or house needy persons. The funds must go to organizations that push social or structural change. These groups generally follow an organizational philosophy established by the Industrial Area Foundation (IAF). The IAF embodies the beliefs and practices developed by its founder, Saul Alinsky. In the course...

    DENVER - With just 21 days left until an election in which every vote will count, the 9News I-Team has uncovered voter registration fraud that could cause chaos on Election Day for hundreds, possibly thousands of Colorado voters. 9News has discovered a record number of fraudulent voter-registrations across the state. Secretary of State Donetta Davidson tells 9News she is concerned about what the I-Team has uncovered and wants those responsible prosecuted. "It has just gone rampant," she told reporter Deborah Sherman in an interview Monday afternoon. Most of the fraud has come from registration drives, where people at grocery stores...

    The director of a U.S. Catholic archdiocese ministry wants to put President George W. Bush on trial for war crimes because of his Iraq policy. In his most recent newsletter, Frank Fromherz, of the Peace and Justice Commission for the Portland Archdiocese in Oregon urged like-minded Catholics to back an ecumenical group's request that "the International Criminal Court indict and prosecute our own president as a war criminal." Fromherz and the commission's other two employees lost their jobs this week along with 15 others in a round of archdiocese layoffs attributed to budget cuts. But Portland Archbishop John G. Vlazny...

    It looks as if the embattled Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston hasn't learned a single thing about the dangers of covering up problems such as the horrendous pedophile priests scandal - it now refuses to discuss having an official of a Catholic Charities organization under its authority working as a volunteer at an abortion butchery. When Ed Oliver, a MassNews reporter asked both the Boston Archdiocese and the Dorchester branch of Catholic Charities about Howard M. Brown, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker,and Director of Counseling Services at Catholic Charities, moonlighting as a volunteer at Planned Parenthood's abortuary, he ran ...

    Thirty years of parades, demonstrations, side-walk counseling, civil disobedience, educational campaigns and annual letters from the Catholic bishops have not only failed to bring forth a Human Life Amendment but have left entrenched abortion as a right deeper in the culture.Unfortunately, the evidence suggests that the Catholic bishops themselves, with a few exceptions, constitute the Secret Weapon of the Democrat Party which functions as the chief advocate and protector of the abortion industry. This conclusion resulted from an examination not of the Catholic bishops' pro-life rhetoric but of their spending.The fact remains that the great bulk of the work and...
