Well, it's a sad day when a non-Catholic outsider seems to understand more about the USCCB and its attendant government and parishoner subsidized programs that promote abortion, birth-control, government overregulation, homosexuality and creeping Alinskyite socialism. It just goes to show you that you don't have to be a Catholic-in-Name-Only to tell the truth about what is going on in the American Church. Rush Limbaugh, who himself was under attack from the USCCB in October, sees things pretty clearly, he writes,
I mean holy carp, folks. Is nothing sacred? They have infiltrated the Catholic Church? Or maybe the Catholic Church has allowed itself to be infiltrated. "According to the newsletter, 'the Archdiocese of Washington's Environmental Outreach Committee has created a particularly useful new tool" and I have a compressed copy of it right there. I'm not going to zoom in here; I haven't got time. That's the calendar. "[A] calendar that lists 40 carbon-fasting measures individuals can take to reduce their carbon footprint.' The newsletter provides a link to the full calendar. The calendar contains suggestion for each of the 40 days of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, with 'Remove one light bulb from your home and live without the light for the next 40 days.'" What a cheap cop-out.
Perhaps we shouldn't expect truth and integrity from Jesuits or even possibly those who work for them, but we always hold out a candle of hope rather than curse the darkness; Henry Karlson who teaches at Fordham University and writes for InsideCatholic once told us that he favoured the Soviet Union over his own country, and since spending so many years at Fordham, we see that his allegiances haven't changed appreciably, as he demonstrates when he shills for the socialistic, anti-Catholic CCHD in an article he writes about the "good that the CCHD does" for Vox Nuova. Henry used to believe aliens were real, perhaps he still does, but it's far crazier and in our opinion a sign of malice, to defend the CCHD.
While he is eager to attack those who are pointing out that there is something systemically wrong with outsourcing Catholic Charity and relying on non-Catholics and anti-Catholics to do the job as using rhetoric and logical fallacies that have never before been used, he engages in some rhetoric himself and tells us, incredibly, that people would die if the CCHD disappeared tomorrow.
Actually, if the CCHD were abolished tomorrow, it would probably save lives, since the various Planned Parenthood and Pro-Abortion organizations which enjoy CCHD support wouldn't receive that support any longer.
Perhaps instead of outsourcing Catholic Charity to non-Catholic and anti-Catholic organizations, the Bishops should take that money to foster vocations to the Monastic orders who have traditionally been the charity arm of the Catholic church in the past, not a pack of United Way style professionals with murky job titles and strange agendas!
