Catholic Campaign for Human Development links itself to Obama

Do you wonder why 2008 election data shows that the majority of Catholics voted for Barack Obama even though his record as Illinois state senator proves him the most pro-abortion candidate who ever ran for president?

Perhaps one answer is that on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, millions of Catholics will again be putting in their church's collection plate their annual donation to what the pre-printed envelope calls "Campaign for Human Development: The Catholic Church working to end poverty and injustice in America; We'll turn your dollars into hope for the poor of our nation."

The generous Catholics who respond to that well-phrased appeal probably think they are making a Good Samaritan gift to provide necessaries to the down-and-out. Most would probably be shocked to learn that the money donated to the Campaign for Human Development, or CHD, does not go for charity but for radical Obama-style community organizing.

ACORN's registering voters is radical? Or only if they're the "wrong" kind of voters?

And Phyllis Schlafly, opponent of modern science and modern women, is an example of cool common sense?

I don't believe many people think that ACORN is radical for rousing votes for one side of the political spectrum or the other. It's more about nonexistent voter registration, intimidation, etc. I'd be more apt to listen to what they have to say if they weren't known to sneak their ideas into our communities without letting people think for themselves.

Americans deserve more credit than this.

(Schlafly is well respected by many, whether you agree with her viewpoints or not.)
