Opening page – Dedication

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

How could a system dedicated to Lucifer become a force for social change in Catholic parishes?

More bad fruit: The Catholic Roots of Obama’s Activism

CHICAGO — In a meeting room under Holy Name Cathedral, a rapt group of black Roman Catholics listened as Barack Obama, a 25-year-old community organizer, trained them to lobby their fellow delegates to a national congress in Washington on issues like empowering lay leaders and attracting more believers.

“He so quickly got us,” said Andrew Lyke, a participant in the meeting who is now the director of the Chicago Archdiocese’s Office for Black Catholics. The group succeeded in inserting its priorities into the congress’s plan for churches, Mr. Lyke said, and “Barack Obama was key in helping us do that.”

Editor’s note: This is a truly wide ranging bio on the President – probably much more revealing than Mr. Obama would prefer. And now, he may have another willing collaborator in Pope Francis.

“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.

Conservative Catholic: Pope Francis is “a theological train wreck”.

trainwreck

Though this might shock some readers, I must say that I would never allow Pope Francis to teach religion to my children. 

For example, Francis recently claimed that all men, Catholics, non-Catholics and atheists, are all “first-class” children of God. There are 16-year-old traditional Catholics who know better than to make such a claim. Scripture and Catholic Tradition teach that we are adopted children of God only through Baptism and incorporation into the Church by means of Faith and Sanctifying grace. (Read Part I of Abbot Marmion’s Christ the Life of the Soul that describes this truth with doctrinal clarity and immense beauty).

Bergoglio is thoroughly of the Vatican II orientation. He was formed in the 1960s by the Jesuits, so we cannot expect much else. A man of the 70s, he reminds me of some of the soft ‘social justice’ priests in high school (1972-1976) whom I found repulsive.

Read an article about the Catholic Campaign for Human Development that Yahoo tried to suppress

Originally posted in 2003 – BBO – before Barack Obama 

For thirty years, the bishops have been paying lip-service to the right to life, while putting Catholic money into Alinsky-style organizations like the IAF. They gave IAF a million dollars. They gave a million to ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) where Hillary Clinton learned her trade.

Joseph Cardinal Bernardin gave a million to the Chicago Metropolitan Sponsors (CMS) (while shutting down parochial schools) so that it could hire IAF to organize United Power for Action and Justice (UPAJ).

When the Cardinal was criticized for giving so much Catholic money to this group, he answered that the money did not really belonging to the Church. Someone gave it to him to fund CMS. No one in authority has yet pointed out that donating money in such a manner constitutes the very essence of money-laundering.

How dumbed-down liberal politics seriously weakened the Catholic Church and society at large

Want to promote homosexuality and weaken the family? Refuse to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act!

Want to induce people to believe and support anything the politicians say? Dumb-down the educational system and give away lots of free stuff!

Want to seriously weaken the faith of the Body of Christ?
Throw out all the old catechesis
and replace it with social justice work,
financed primarily with government money!

All three tactics are patently liberal. All three tactics have proved to be very effective, and all three tactics were successfully employed by the liberals who ran the Catholic Church in America, long before the liberal Democrat dominated U.S. Government ever “picked up” on them.

The result? Moral and financial bankruptcy – exactly what should be expected when God’s laws are deliberately ignored in a vain attempt to accommodate the proclivities of sinful mankind.

Glossy left-wing Catholic propaganda screed attempts to justify making deals with the devil for social justice purposes.

Evidently, diversity and inclusion goes right out the window when the money stops – if you’re a left-wing, progressive (pro-abort, pro-homosexual, pro-big government, Socialist-Democrat) Catholic.

This piece never fails to indict conservative Catholics for their faithfulness – and it never fails to praise those who have shamelessly and often fraudulently been using Catholic money for anti-Catholic purposes, over the last 40 years.

A number of Catholic bishops have allegedly endorsed this report. That should come as no surprise.
