What I Will Be Putting in the Collection Basket

Dear USCCB,

Please be advised that I will not contribute to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.  This is because of the CCHD's history of financial support for large-scale voter fraud, abortion, contraceptives, gay "marriage" and New Age practices via grants to organizations like ACORN, the Los Angeles Community Action Network, and the Chinese Progressive Association.   One organization that will be cashing in on Catholic donations from the pews this year is the Gamaliel Foundation, via several affiliates.  In 2007, the Gamaliel Foundation received $150,000.00 from leftist gazillionaire George Soros. That George Soros backs the Gamaliel Foundation tells me everything I need to know about whether I should do likewise.

Although the CCHD, compelled by embarrassing publicity, has defunded some of the more blatantly egregious donees, I am still boycotting it because the bulk of its donees continues to be political organizations, apparently leftist or left-leaning, the primary purpose of which is "community organizing."   I am hard-pressed to come up with a difference between "community organizing" and bread and circuses.   "Community organizing" is the ultimate in stealing from the poor to give to the rich -- rich demagogues whose stream of income would be instantly dammed up if they ever really achieved their stated goals.  It is also a distraction from the Church's mission to go out and make disciples of all the nations.  We hear a lot of talk about the number of poor people who could have been fed with the money that was spent on a statue or a chalice; but what about all the people to whom the Good News could have been brought by the $996,000.00 that ACORN got in 2007, or the $160,000.00 that affiliates of the Gamaliel Foundation received in 2009?  Must we compound the material poverty of the poor with spiritual poverty?

Such money as I have to give will go to legitimate Catholic apostolates.  That leaves me with nothing for the CCHD.

Yours in Christ,

Anita Moore, Esq., OPL

  1. Can I copy this and put it on my blog as well? You can call it the "Idaho declaration".

  2. Anita, whenever you post an analysis such as this, there is often one striking statement made that kicks me in the face, where I say "YES! BINGO!"

    In this post, it this one: '"Community organizing" is the ultimate in stealing from the poor to give to the rich -- rich demagogues whose stream of income would be instantly dammed up if they ever really achieved their stated goals.'

    Excellent job as usual, V-girl.
