Recently the CCHD of the Archdiocese of Chicago defunded the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refuge Rights. The latter group had previously received funding. Why did Cardinal George see fit to deny them funding this go-around? Because the latter group supported same-sex marriage. It is a well-established fact that any applicant for CCHD funding must affirm that they do not hold positions contrary to the moral teaching of the Catholic Church.
As we well know, many CCHD grant recipients do not uphold their end of the bargain (or they just flat-out lied about their intents to honor Catholic teaching). Too often prelates have looked the other way (or they actually approve of the deceit and dissent). That didn't happen this time.
Naturally a bunch of progressive politicians bunched their undies over Cardinal George's decision and published an open letter accusing him of using "immigrants as pawns". Thankfully His Eminence is standing his ground and he issued his own open letter. Towards the bottom he reminded his detractors that "Jesus is merciful but He is not stupid." The dissidents would do well to consider the Cardinal's words sooner rather than later - for it will be too late when they stand before Jesus at the end of their earthly lives.
The building of the House of the Abramitic Family seems to be a Babelic enterprise, concocted by the enemies of God, of the Catholic Church and of the only true religion capable of saving man and the whole creation from destruction, both now and in eternity, and definitively. The foundations of this “House,” destined to give way and collapse, arise where, by the hands of the builders themselves, the One Cornerstone is about to be incredibly removed: Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord, on whom is built the House of God. “Therefore,” warns the Apostle Paul, “let everyone is careful how he builds. Indeed, no one can lay a foundation other than the one already found there, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Cor 3:10).
