The national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is coming up this weekend, and though the CCHD has taken steps to clean up its act, organizations promoting abortion, birth control and homosexuality continue to receive CCHD funds.

ROBBING PETER TO PAY SAUL ALINSKY

Editor’s note: Remember to “PASS” on the annual CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development) 2nd collection coming up this Sunday – unless you like empowering leftist community organizer types, who regularly promote a myriad of anti-Catholic social programs, using Catholic donations.

There’s plenty of better charitable causes to support. Unfortunately, not many of them are Catholic, any more!

Editor’s note: It’s about time the Catholic Church stopped supporting immoral and anti-Catholic causes, in the name of charity. As usual, those who have been accepting the money demand that “no strings” be attached. Then they agonizingly cry out to the world when the Church rightly refuses to go along. In this case, the issue was homosexual marriage.

The annual CCHD 2nd collection is coming up soon. Let’s do our part to totally eliminate these types of problems by finally eliminating all donations to the CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development).

Better yet, organize your friends, family and local parishioners in order to become your very own “Catholic Charity” and fund your own favorite causes. Then you will have no more worries about glad-handed, bleeding heart, faux-Catholic  liberals (and their disinterested and/or complicit local bishops) handing your hard earned money over to anti-Catholic organizations, doing immoral things – something which has (unfortunately) been happening, throughout the United States, for (at least) the last fifty years!

“Catholic” charities are not bringing Christ, but rather programs, projects, and agencies that focus specifically on “services” that are at absolute odds with Catholic teaching.

Genuine social justice is not composed of bureaucracies, collaboration with government agencies, and high salaries. As Pope Francis has recently said, it begins with Christ: “The Church must bring Jesus, the love of Jesus, the charity of Jesus.”

And that’s the rub. Our research has repeatedly pointed out over the last four years that Catholic Charities USA,Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and Catholic Relief Services have repeatedly shown that they are not bringing Jesus, but rather programs, projects, and agencies that focus specifically on “services” that are at absolute odds with Catholic teaching.

The big Catholic charities have become nothing but conduits for transferring taxpayer dollars to the third world, often with the same agenda held by the population controllers running the U.S.

They can “sell” their evil much easier in Catholic countries by using a “Catholic” agency to do the dirty. And Catholic Relief Services has shown themselves happy to oblige.

Catholic Relief Services distributes abortifacients in Madagascar: on-the-ground investigation

Sad to say, you cannot trust most of the big Catholic charities: Cartholic Relief Services (CRS) is up to its neck in promoting the anti-life message in the third world. Catholic Charities (CC) scandals abound, and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) sends one third to one half of money collected to Alinsky organizing groups that do their darnedest to undermine the faith and elect politicians diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching. And how do the bishops respond to criticism of these horrendous abuses? They attack the messengers. Very sad.

Ralph McCloud is still running the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, in spite of his direct support for pro-abortion Texas state senator Wendy Davis

And if this scandal is not enough, the CCHD – with the support of a number of bishops – is still spouting falsehoods and issuing denials about the various anti-Catholic things they continue to do with Catholic money.

74 reasons to keep your money, instead of dropping it in the Thanksgiving CCHD collection basket.

CCHD 2011-2012 Grants Report

What follows is a listing of all 74 grantees found to be in violation of CCHD guidelines and Catholic moral teaching.  Each grantee is listed by diocese (in alphabetical order), along with codes to indicate the ways in which the grantees are in violation.  Each letter code following (DA) indicates ways in which the grantees supported abortion, homosexuality, birth control, or Marxism through direct action.  Each letter code following (CO) indicate the grantees indirect support through coalitions.  Each letter code following (LE) indicates the actions of the leadership of the organization, which violate Catholic moral teaching.

NOTE REGARDING DIOCESES NOT LISTED HERE: Most dioceses that take the CCHD collection only retain 25% of the collection money for local use.  The other 75% is sent to national CCHD, who then redistributes that collected money to organizations like those listed below.

Reform CCHD Now Coalition: “We cannot advance the Gospel of Life, bringing souls to God if we continue to fund the enemies of Christ.”

In the summer, RCN released a comprehensive report profiling 74 current CCHD grantees who have advocated activities contrary to Catholic teaching. They say 38% of CCHD’s grant funds went to organizations that support abortion, contraception, homosexuality, or Marxism either directly or through memberships in coalitions.

Find Reform CCHD Now’s full report on CCHD’s problematic grantees.

“As a coalition, we are calling on all 74 grantees profiled in our report to return their grant money to the Catholic Church,” says Hichborn. “We ask Catholics all across the country to read the report, become informed, and inform their family, friends, pastors and bishops on where Catholic money is going.”

CCHD’s grant guidelines stipulate that “applicant organizations must not participate in or promote activities that contradict the moral and social teachings of the Catholic Church.”
