How Can One Tell When It’s CCHD Collection Time?

One answer to that question is “when the CCHD and their supporters start their preemptive screeds against faithful Catholics concerned about their left-wing leanings“.
For example, David Gibson of Religion News Service starts his piece by claiming that “conservative activists are threatening the social mission of the Catholic Church… by attacking the Church’s flagship anti-poverty program with 21st-century style Catholic McCarthyism.”
Of course he refers to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.  Obviously Mr. Gibson is unaware that the CCHD, by policy, gives no money to organizations that directly perform the Corporal Works of Mercy.  Perhaps Mr. Gibson knows that and he doesn’t give a hoot.  At any rate, CCHD has traditionally given grants – collected from Catholics during the in-pew collections – to organizations that seek to “change social structures and policies”.  That quote is taken from one of their flyers.
More often than not, these organizations are socialist in nature, along the lines of Saul Alinsky.
Indeed, the CCHD was originated by Msgr Jack Egan, an associate (and disciple) of Saul Alinsky for the express purpose of syphoning Catholic resources to fund these community-organizing endeavors (Barack Obama cut his political teeth while working with the Gamaliel Foundation, one such group).  But this blog’s previous posts have delved in detail into CCHD’s sordid past – no need to rehash that here.

  1. Just say “NO!” to CCHD.

  2. Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and
    look forward to new posts.

      Thanks for writing.

      • Well, I suppose that now that every form of electronic communication is subject to total interception and recording by our police state, my personal antipathy to, and non-participation in, “social media” has been rendered purely academic.

        Nonetheless—and with all due respect, Doug—I will continue to not follow you on Twitter.

      • I refuse to do Facebook, but when the pope opened a Twitter account, I decided to follow suit – mainly to make it easier for people to subscribe to my daily posts.

      • When the pope opened a Twitter account, I seriously pondered if that was a sign of the last days.
