CRS Double Talk From The USCCB Meeting Today

The nation's bishops are in the midst of their annual meeting in Baltimore.  Today Archbishop Joseph Naumann (of the Archdiocese of Kansas City) in light of the CRS scandals, proposed a rather reasonable suggestion: to make the Catholic Relief Services subject to the same guidelines as is the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.  While on a practical level I don't see the benefit of that, since the CCHD is so adroit at violating those standards (rather ironic since this meeting is being held in Baltimore, given the New Lens scandal), the response that the Archbishop got was revealing.  The verbal tap-dance is a sight to behold in this clip.  Bishop Kicanas is the one who engages in the double-talk; he's the same bishop who crabbed about the light being shown on the CRS scandals by American Life League.

Now at 2:08 he's definitely uttering something factually incorrect, given the scandals last summer.  If he's aware of them (and I cannot believe he isn't) then we have an Eighth Commandment issue here.  And of course the funds ARE fungible, speaking from my own experiences with not-for-profits.  Bishop Kicanas' blather provides ample reason why the entire USCCB should be dismantled immediately.

  1. Thank you so much for all of the work you put into this blog. He basically admitted to partnering with anti-Catholic organizations, and called it necessary. What utter nonsense! That alone is against Church teaching. I pray Catholics stop funding and that the USCCB closes this down as quickly as possible. Foreign assistance must be given always in the light of Jesus Christ. Souls and salvation is the business of the Bishops and not partnering with the diabolical.

    Here's a link of 14 pages as to What a Bishop is that I found interesting since there is no common good mumbo jumbo in there whatsoever. God bless you and your work!
