TRANSCRIPT

It’s now the week leading up to American Thanksgiving, and that means that the bureaucrats who run the U.S. bishops’ conference are going to be passing out the CCHD envelopes in parishes all over America this weekend. Don’t give them a dime.

For those of you who may not know about the CCHD — the Catholic Campaign for Human Development — it’s been a source of scandal for the bishops’ conference for decades. It was the brainchild of modernist churchman Cdl. Joseph Bernardin of Chicago back in 1970 and allegedly began in response to the race tensions from the 1960s. The bishops identified that some of the poverty in America among black Americans as owing to racism, so they established what was then called the Campaign for Human Development. It was to raise a few million dollars and then close shop. But like all cash cows, once the bishops saw it generated a few million bucks a year at the annual collection, they kept it going in perpetuity. read more

TRANSCRIPT

What puzzles so many faithful Catholics these days about the bishops is why they always seem to be on board with the talking points of the Left and yet barely raise their collective voices in matters of Church teaching. The distinction that many people including a majority of Catholics fail to make is that there is a distinction to be made between types of issues, and as you’ve heard here many times before, the Catholic mind is the mind which makes distinctions.

There are really two tiers of evils that we are speaking of. There are intrinsic evils and then, evils which are not intrinsically so. Intrinsic means that something by its very nature — the what of what it is — is always evil, everywhere, for everyone, under every circumstance — think, for example, abortion or contraception or homosexual acts or adultery or stealing or cheating. Justice and charity are each gravely offended against when these intrinsic evils are chosen — always. read more
