As I promised on Monday, I am forwarding to you additional articles on the CCHD (Catholics Contributing to Hell's Demons). Here are some just recently published.
My friend Stephanie Block has released the second part in her four-part series. Here it is. Also read a blog from a Dallas area Catholic who writes "Reformed" CCHD worse than ever. Read the fourth comment below that. If that is correct (and it just might well be), what we have is good old-fashioned Chicago-style shakedowns in the time-honored tradition of Al Capone himself. Why not? The nightmare known as CCHD was spawned in Chicago, after all.
Oh, by the way. The CCHD Fan Club is springing to the defense of this Alinskyan cash cow. We have US Catholic whining "here we go again". The article is quite laughable. It assures us that CCHD is on the up and up because the diocesan CCHD directors monitor it; in other words, the hens are safe because the fox is guarding them. Now here's a real bone-headed statement. I quote "the Reform CCHD Now folks have never personally gone to CCHD staff with their concerns." Au contraire! They sent their report to each and every bishop well in advance of release. None of this was news, anyway, for we have been raising these concerns for years now. Then the author has the nerve to try to apply Matthew 18 and to say that the authors failed to obey it. That would only strictly apply if the sin in question was personal - but many, many people have been wronged, and thus it must be addressed publicly. The author mocks what he calls "guilt by association". Gee - I wonder if he'd be so nonchalant about "guilt by association" if the association was with the Ku Klux Klan.
There is no reason why we need to associate with questionable organizations to assist the poor. There are plenty of decent charitable organizations that do not in any way taint themselve with others that advocate murder of babies.
On Facebook was posted the video below. Watch to the end, particularly for Goal 27 (you'll understand when you see it). Click here if you cannot see embedded video.
