Last week's abysmal mess of a "bishops' meeting" in Baltimore should have given you ample reason to boycott any national collection by the USCCB. In fact, reasons to boycott the CCHD collection have always proliferated. Yet now even more scandal is brought to light.
In the clip below, Michael Hichborn of Lepanto Institute reveals his latest findings regarding abuse of Catholic donations. You will notice towards the end that he admits the possibility that the bishops aren't merely lovable bumpkins who are naive regarding the usage of the CCHD money. Many of them are in fact in cahoots with the leftists who want to tear down the Faith and western civilization. I have seen it too often in the Archdiocese of Washington. As a sidewalk counselor in this area, I now have reason to believe that the chancery has been working to undermine our efforts on the sidewalks over the years; consider who the prelates have been and the myriad of scandals surrounding them. But I digress.
This is a long clip but well worth your time in watching it. Around the 1:15:00 mark, Hichborn and Marshall discuss ways in which we can take action - and yes, they involve leaving our comfort zones.
Most dioceses will have their collections this coming weekend. This collection should be boycotted completely. As part of acting proactively, I'd suggest going to this post and printing off the envelope stuffer at the bottom. Sign it and put that in your envelope in lieu of money. Here are other posts to read. This report goes more into the sordid origins of the CCHD.
Now the video.

Thanks for the reminder! I'm going to increase my contribution this year.ReplyDelete
You know now to what you plan to contribute. You'll answer to God for your support of mortal sin, not me. Somehow I suspect you'll be silenced in regret then, if not abject fear, as opposed to your current flippancy.Delete
