Catholics In Name Only, USCCB Denounced by Bishop Martino

Topics:  Faithful Citizenship, Freedom of Choice Act

TWO STORIES:

Bishop shows up unannounced at election forum, defends Church’s stance on abortion

“The USCCB doesn’t speak for me.”—-Bishop Joseph Martino, Scranton, PA

Opinion:  Bishop Martino is Right, ‘This is Madness People’

After listening to some of the speakers attempt to take the most recent letter of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on “Faithful Citizenship”, turn it on its head through sophistry, and then use it as a framework to influence Catholics to support a candidate who has pledged as their first official act if elected to the Presidency to sign the “Freedom of Choice Act” into law (even though an alternative exists which would at least limit the evil of procured abortion) the Bishop stepped up to the microphone. He told those present: “No social issue has caused the death of 50 million people”, referring of course to the current evil of abortion on demand as it exists in the United States of America since the horrible judicial opinions in Roe and Doe. Then he spoke those four words, “This is Madness People.”

‘National Stories about Portland developers are weird’

Daily Journal of Commerce – Oregon

  • Commentary –  We at Fidelity and Action wonder why the DJC is so surprised about the connections between hardcore gay porn and a real estate developer in Portland? Perhaps they’re not aware that for 10 years the Portland Oregon Visitors Association’s director Joe Allessandro was openly gay.  POVA has its own gay Portland page .  Gays have a yellow pages.  And gays have a chamber of commerce for Portland and SW WA  –  http://www.paba.com  – an affiliate of www.nglcc.org  .  Mustang is a sponsor of Portland’s Pride Parade and the Oregon Bears.

GEORGE SOROS FUNDS PRO-ABORTION CATHOLIC LEFT

Catholic League president Bill Donohue exposes the nexus between George Soros and two left-wing Catholic groups, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United:

“In 2003, after left-wing mogul George Soros blamed Jews for anti-Semitism, the Anti- Defamation League branded his comments ‘obscene.’ Two years later, I accused him of anti-Catholicism when his group, MoveOn.org, posted a picture of a smiling Pope Benedict XVI holding a gavel outside the U.S. Supreme Court, along with the following inscription: ‘God Already Has a Job…He does not need one on the Supreme Court.’

“Why is this relevant? Because this same bigot is connected to two apologists for abortion rights, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United. In 2006, Soros’ Open Society Institute gave Catholics in Alliance $100,000 (double the amount he gave in 2005), and in the same year Catholics in Alliance listed Catholics United on its 990 as an organization with which it has a formal relationship. John Podesta, who runs the Soros-funded organization, Center for American Progress, admits that he works closely with Catholics in Alliance and Catholics United. The Center for American Progress is also the sponsor of Faith and Public Life.

“Why would any Catholic organization take money from a man like George Soros? Because legitimate sources of revenue aren’t available? And why would Soros have any interest in funding Catholic groups? He doesn’t give the Catholic League any money, and if he offered, I would refuse it.

“The reason Soros funds the Catholic Left is the same reason he lavishly funds Catholics for Choice, the pro-abortion group that has twice been condemned as a fraud by Catholic bishops: they all service his agenda, namely, to make support for abortion rights a respectable Catholic position. On October 17, Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput [click for article] accused Catholics in Alliance and Catholics United as doing a ‘disservice’ to the Catholic Church. He’s right. And now we know what really makes them tick.

Defunding ACORN: Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Thanks to radio talk shows like Hugh Hewitt and Rush Limbaugh, ACORN is getting the outing it deserves.  We at Fidelity and Action have been withholding donations to the Archdiocese because of ACORN.  Not only is ACORN involved in voter fraud and embezzlement, but also is pro-abortion.

Stephanie Block has written a good piece at Spero News . . .

‘Defunding ACORN is laudable but insufficient.’
