Alleged Catholic priests support pro-abortion, pro-homosexual groups

CatholicCulture.org is reporting that even as lay Catholic activists have renewed their criticism of ties between the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and radical activist groups, liberal priests in the Chicago archdiocese are urging Cardinal Francis George to roll back reforms of the local CCHD effort.

A group of Chicago priests, led by Father Larry Dowling of St. Agatha’s parish, is circulating a petition to Cardinal George protesting these reforms. The priests’ letter charges that the changes in the Chicago CCHD effort have “done great damage in a number of ways.”

The priests’ letter expresses resentment that CCHD grant applications in the Chicago archdiocese are being vetted by a selection committee “including lay people who openly described CCHD as defective and ‘needing fixing.’” They argue that it is insulting for grant applications to be asked whether their organizations are involved in advocacy for abortion or same-sex marriage.

It's Chicago, so this doesn't surprize me. I'm surprized Fr. Pfleger isn't front & center.

Faithful Catholics of Chicago or of any diocese, toss this coupon instead of money into the basket at the "2nd Collection."

Ryan Ellis wrote an eye-opening article of the ACORN/Catholic Church connection in September of 09. It's worth a re-read. Ellis' and quite a few others' articles caused quite a storm last year. However, the Les Femmes-The Truth blog points our that, unfortunately, things haven't really changed.

We haven't given anything but our weekly donation for more than a year, now. There is no way we want our hard-earned money passing through Cardinal Mahony's hands. [You know, he of I don't know about ObamaCare covering abortions, "my-field-is-immigration" fame.] If there is a second collection that we agree with we send it direct!

Just a reminder. The collection for the CCHD is usually on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. But check with your diocesan office just to be sure. Regardless, the collection is held in November.

ERRATUM:
The collection is usually taken the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Still, check with your parish or diocese office.

Good expose by Kevin Whiteman at the Examiner.com. Michael Voris posted a vidoe about the continuing scandal of CCHD corruption that the bishops still support. I blogged about that here:

Here We Go, Again! - CCHD's Support of Abortion, Gay Marriage and Marxism
http://commentarius-ioannis.blogspot.com/2010/11/here-we-go-again-cchds-support-of.html

I really didn't have much to say beyound what the Catholic Cavemen and the Catawissa Gazetteer blogsites have had to say. This is a scandal on the Body of Christ. Just like the Church at Laodicea in Revelation 3:14-22, He'll spew us out of His mouth if we don't wake up and here the birds sing. The words in verse 17 could well have been spoken to the USCCB:

"For you say, 'I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,' and yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked."
