Cesar Chavez was a unique and truly Catholic labor leader

Chávez’s selection of symbols reflected his awareness that while speaking for a largely Mexican Catholic constituency, was also trying to speak to a broader American public.  His “Plan of Delano” reflects a proper ordering of these symbolic allegiances:

We seek, and have, the support of the Church in what we do.  At the head of the Pilgrimage we carry LA VIRGEN DE LA GUADALUPE . . . because she is ours, all  ours, Patroness of the Mexican people

We also carry the Sacred Cross and the Star of  David because we are not sectarians, and because we ask the help and prayers of all religions.

All men are brothers—sons of the same God; that is why we say to all men of   good will, in the words of Pope Leo XIII,

“Everyone’s first duty is to protect the workers from the greed of speculators who use human beings as instruments to provide themselves with money.  It is neither just nor human to oppress men with excessive  work to the point where their minds become enfeebled and their bodies worn out.” 

GOD SHALL NOT ABANDON US.

Website informs girls and families why they should not support Girl Scouts of the USA through their annual cookie sale

Simi Valley, CA — A 14-year-old Girl Scout has an important message to share with the nation. Although she enjoys scouting and remains a member of GSUSA, she is alarmed and disappointed about the leftward drift of this once venerable institution. Her dissatisfaction with GSUSA’s direction and her desire to alert others of critical changes in the organization has led her to create a video warning families about these issues while calling for a boycott of the annual Girl Scout cookie sale.

Following the Girl Scouts’ directive to “Discover, Connect and Take Action,” this teen hopes that her launch of a Girl Scout Cookie Boycott will speak volumes to GSUSA and have them reconsider their partnerships and lack of neutrality during this year, the 100th Anniversary of the founding of American Girl Scouts and GSUSA’s own proclaimed “Year of the Girl.”

“Why is GSUSA willing to break its own safety rules and go against its own Research Institute findings to accommodate transgender boys? Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA cares more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does for my safety and the safety of my friends and sister Girl Scouts.”

Five Pro-Abortion Women Celebrities Pro-Lifers Should Boycott

If we stopped watching every movie or TV show featuring a pro-choice celebrity, we’d never watch anything. However, there are a few entertainers who are such blatant shills for the abortion industry that I as a pro-lifer feel obligated to deny them my money and attention.

Here are just a few. I’m putting them in ascending order from least to greatest in terms of how much they annoy me, but rest assured they are all deeply annoying.

Boycott of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Press Release

Catholic Citizens of Illinois calls for Boycott of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development

By Catholic Citizens of Illinois

When the Catholic Bishops of the United States established the Campaign for Human Development in 1970, they mandated the Campaign to fund “such projects as voter registration, community organizations, community-run schools, minority-owned cooperatives and credit unions, capital for industrial development and job training programs, and setting up rural cooperatives.” It was subsequently renamed the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, with prohibitions on funding of projects that were not in conformity with Catholic moral teaching.
 
The CCHD was sold to Catholic parishioners with a slogan of “a hand up instead of a hand out,” but instead, CCHD has heavily invested in the political organizing techniques of Saul Alinsky, a Marxist organizer from Chicago who founded the nationwide Industrial Areas Foundation, which in the Chicago area is known as United Power. United Power has been financed by various mainline Protestant churches and has made great inroads into the Catholic Church in Chicago, recruiting parish ministers and receiving funding from various parishes through dues and contributions. For all practical purposes, United Power is an extension of the far left wing of the Democrat Party.
 
In a November 4 report in The Washington Time, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced that it has hired forensic accounting specialists to investigate more than $1 million in church funding to voter-registration group ACORN, suspecting that the money may have been spent in criminal acts that would negatively impact the tax exempt status of the Church.

 

The CCHD has given more tha! n $7.3 m illion to ACORN over the past decade for about 320 projects, including $900,000 in 2006 and $1,110,000 in 2007. In June or this year, the Catholic Church allegedly froze a $1.2 million grant for 38 ACORN chapters after the community-organizing group was accused of voter fraud in 15 states. Critics of the CCHD have challenged the USCCB to provide evidence of the freeze and confirm that no payments have been made to ACORN in 2008.

 

Mary Anne Hackett, President of Catholic Citizens, commented, “It is well know that ACORN played a major role in the current financial crisis by intimidating banks through public rallies, invasions of bank lobbies with large groups of ACORN activists and picketing bank executives homes. ACORN bullied banks into making loans to people who could not repay them. To avoid vilification as racist, local banks were forced to make loans to unqualified borrowers, even allowing them to use food stamps as collateral for the loans.” These practices have caused the failure of several major financial institutions and the damage continues to reverberate through the economy.

 

Mrs. Hackett stated further, “Funding campaigns for socialist programs and Democrat Party candidates has no place in the mission of the Catholic Church or in service to the poor.” The funds are collected from the Catholic parishioners with no accountability to them for the expenditures. Nor does the Campaign for Human Development fund Catholic Institutions and apostolates that work with the poor.

 

“The Catholic Church, through its contributions to ACORN, is complicit in voter fraud and the failure of our economy. This must stop,” said Mrs. Hackett. Catholic Citizens of Illinois calls on all Catholics to boycott the annual collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development on the weekend of November 22 and 23.

Family Advocates Take McDonald’s Boycott to Home of the Golden Arches After “Hate” Smear

Family Advocates Take McDonald’s Boycott to Home of the Golden Arches After “Hate” Smear

By Peter J. Smith

OAK BROOK, Illinois, July 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The boycott against McDonald’s over its public support of a gay lobby group pushing same-sex “marriage” has now escalated, as the pro-family groups the global hamburger giant accused recently of “hate” have brought the fight right to the home of the famed Golden Arches.

The American Family Association (AFA), Americans for Truth, the Illinois Family Institute, and the legal advocacy group Liberty Counsel held a joint press conference Wednesday in front of the McDonald’s restaurant across from McDonald’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois to protest the corporation’s statements that people opposed to its support of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), were motivated by “hate.”

The family groups had asked McDonald’s to stop supporting the NGLCC, which advocates same-sex “marriage,” and repeated their call for McDonald’s to remain neutral in the culture wars.

“Unfortunately, McDonalds has chosen to side with militant homosexual activists over people with traditional values,” stated Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with Liberty Counsel. “The company has further escalated the controversy by lodging a personal attack against the tens of millions of Americans who support traditional sexual morality and legitimate marriage.”

Barber continued, “While referring to Christians and other people with traditional values, McDonald’s spokesman Bill Whitman arrogantly told the Washington Post that, ‘Hatred has no place in our culture,’ thereby suggesting that people who support the historical definition of marriage are simply motivated by ‘hate.’

“This insult is highly offensive, and anyone who supports traditional marriage should boycott McDonalds and tell the company why they’re doing so.”
