Today, at Mass in a local parish, I discovered that the DC Catholic Charities is having its annual fundraising gala this evening. Maybe I missed it but I recall no mention of it in the Catholic Standard. It is here on their website, but immediately I noticed something very odd about it. Nowhere do I see mention of a keynote speaker. In the past, they have had some extremely questionable honorees. In 2002, for instance, they honored John Sweeney, then president of the pro-abortion AFL-CIO. He had been president for several years and still the AFL-CIO site directly linked to NOW's site. So given their propensity to rub elbows with all sorts of seedy characters AND their rather coy silence regarding tonight's program, we will not be surprised if DC Catholic Charities indeed grovels at the feet of some pro-abort and/or dissident celebrity.
By the way, I went to their facebook page to see if there were additional details about this evening's shin-dig. I didn't see any, but I saw where they promoted the Soros-funded "March for Our Lives". However, I don't see one peep regarding the Sex-Ed-Sit-Out that is scheduled for April 23rd. If parents are going to let their kids out of school, the reason might as well be to prevent progressive poison from polluting their brains and corrupting their morals. In fact, I don't see mention of it on the USCCB site or any diocesan websites; if I've overlooked one, please advise.
If anyone has any info on this evening's event, please advise via the comments section. In the meantime, please boycott the in-pew collections of all these so-called "Catholic charitable outreaches".
