Catholic Campaign for Human Development a Scandal - BOYCOTT THE COLLECTION PLATE

Here is some info about the CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT.  West Bend's local pastor, Jeff Haines, of St. Francis Cabrini Church (262-338-2366), is an ADVOCATE of "Common Ground", a brainchild of socialist community organizer, Saul Alinsky. Catholics beware, be informed, be wise.

1)      From this collection the Bishops gave
2)      Just this year alone, the Bishops gave $247,000 to Chicago-style community organizing groups in Wisconsin  (see below)
3)      Pro-Life groups are NOT eligible for these funds
4)      Pregnancy Care Centers are NOT eligible for these funds
5)      Religious Orders are NOT eligible for these funds
6)      Soup kitchens and homeless programs are NOT eligible for these funds.

One can only imagine how many staff could have been hired to fight Planned Parenthood’s agenda for our state, billboards that could have been displayed, tv commercials that could have been aired, newspaper ads that could have been printed, ultrasound machines that could have been purchased, buses that could have been sponsored for folks to attend the March for Life in DC in January, boxes of literature that could have been purchased for door-to-door distribution, etc., out of the

Wisconsin’s Bishops gave to Chicago-style community organizing groups this year.

Many Catholics across Wisconsin work hard flipping pancakes, frying fish and helping with other fundraising efforts, and are highly offended the Bishops just handing these radical left groups excessive checks.

This scandal has reached epic proportions such that several national Pro-Life/Pro-Family groups are calling for a nationwide
“Boycott the Collection Plate”
effort for the CCHD collection.  Many of these organizations’ excellent articles and websites are listed below for easy access.  The time has come for some serious accountability.

HERE ARE SOME CONVENIENT COUPONS for you to print off and share instead of dropping money in the collection plate - CLICK HERE!

Become well informed by reading the materials below or conduct your own research.

Walking the Edge of Immorality: Gamaliel Insider's Story http://blogcritics.org/politics/article/walking-the-edge-of-immorality/

On the contrary, I would advise Catholics not to foolishly drop worthless pieces of paper into the collection plate. Keep in mind that the money given is utilized to keep Church facilities in operation and programs available. St. Frances Cabrini, for example. would not have been able to undergo its beautiful renovation without such donations for exmpale. Boycotting the collection plate would simply cause parishes to go deeper in debt.

What's more, I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for Common Ground. If you are under the impression that all this organization is is a radical left socialist conspiracy, I suggest you do further research.
