- The CCHD had its origins in Chicago. That's where Msgr Jack Egan, friend and disciple of Saul Alinsky, conceived this swindling scheme later known as the CCHD. To this day, it still garners the largest collection in the nation.
- Lately, the CCHD has been crowing and waxing sanctimonious about its overly-vaunted "reform and renewal". It was in the Chicago archdiocese where we were seeing some real efforts and progress in implementing such reforms - reforms that have been sabatogued by renegade archdiocesan priests.
In this article are snippets of a letter that Mr. Flores wrote. The entirety of this letter appears to be in this episode of the Vortex, shown below. Click here if you can't see embedded video.
Another important point - the USCCB is indeed NOT releasing the names of its intended grantees until the collection has already taken place. From a purely secular viewpoint, it's simply unethical on their part - and more so from a truly Catholic viewpoint. What, oh what, are they trying to hide?

Please - do not give to the CCHD collection so much as one red penny. Give any such donations to a crisis pregnancy center (the ones in Maryland are particularly beleagured after the recent attacks they've endured) or other solid charities that actually do practice the Works of Mercy.
