Catholic Charities Awards Dissident Father Hesburgh

Just how many  "Centennial Medals" is Catholic Charities going to bestow (at great waste of money)?  Last September they held a "Centennial Gatherings" in Washington DC.  As I said in August, their personage of honor was none other than Sister Carol Keehan; she received one of those baubles.  She had also been awarded the Pen of Perfidy by the Messiah Most Miserable for her pivotal role in forcing the "Obamanation" of Obamacare down our throats.  There were other unsavory people there who were wined and dined, as that post makes clear.

Well, in Alexandria Virginia they gave another "Centennial Medal" away - this time to Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame.  Father Larry Snyder said of Fr. Hesburgh, "few are of his caliber."  To that we reply, "we wish that were true."

What are some of the not-so-stellar accomplishments of Father Hesburgh?
  • He gave Msgr Jack Egan a place and resources with which to originate the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.  Recall that Msgr Egan was a follower of Saul Alinsky
  • He was a major driving force behind the creation and promulgation of the destructive Land O'Lakes Statement.  This statement explicitly claimed that Catholic institutions of higher learning owed no allegiance nor submission to the Teaching Majesterium of the Church.
Right there you have two ways in which Father Hesburgh helped to introduce progressive poison into the Church.  No doubt he is a darling to many of the thinly-disguised socialists running amok in high places - probably to Obama himself.  Now given the not-so-secret dependence that Catholic Charities has on federal largesse, it's not all that difficult to see why Catholic Charities is kissing up to Hesburgh.

Perhaps we need to promote a boycott of the in-pew Catholic Charities collection, as well as the CCHD collection.
