The CRS, with the USCCB, sent to President Trump a letter to that effect. They said, "Sadly, environmental issues can be politicized for partisan agendas and used in public discourse to serve different economic, social, political and ideological interests." They should know for they are the experts in doing precisely that at the bidding of their puppet-masters and sugar-daddies.
With the Catholic Climate Covenant, they are lobbying for support of the Green Climate Fund and Paris agreements, both of which really promise to be huge drains on cash as they further empower the United Nations. I for one note with pleasure that the President plans to remove us from the Paris agreements and to curtail funding of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Some might remember the Catholic Climate Covenant as promoting a progressive stunt called the Lenten Carbon Fast. I can no longer find their version of the "carbon fast calendar" online, but other similar calendars exist that feature the same nonsense as did the CCC version.
- This gem from the Global Catholic Climate Movement urges us (see March 19) to "let our dishwashers breathe". Ladies and gentlemen, if you notice your dishwashers breathing, might I suggest that you call an exorcist? What these envirowhackos do not consider that it is that "energy-intensive drying cycle" that sterilizes the dishes, helping to prevent the spread of germs.
- Some Catholic envirowhackos from Austrilia have their own calendar, one that has particular focus on their locality. On March 23rd they suggest the consumption of kangaroo meat as opposed to beef or lamb because, well,..methane! Need we go into detail? Bad little cattle! Bad little sheep! Killing the planet via flatulence!
So that is one way that the Catholic Relief Services is squandering the donation dollars of faithful Catholics. Pleading with their higher-ups has proven to be an exercise in futility. The only language they seem to understand is that of "$ ka-ching $". It is our silence with regard to that language that they need to experience.
Speaking of "donation dollars", the second collection for the Archdiocese of Washington during the weekend of March 25-26 will be for the CRS. That is in addition to the lenten Rice Bowl shakedown. As we are boycotting the rice bowl thing, let's boycott this as well and in the same way. I suggested what to do with the Rice Bowl two weeks ago. I'd suggest putting that same note in your envelope and dropping that in the collection basket this weekend.
