Down on the Pharm

If it makes Leftists mad, something has to be RIGHT about it.

Guidance for the USCCB, boycott style.

The collection plates are coming out this month for the Campaign for Human Development, brought to you by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The U.S. Catholic Bishops have been out of their element for years, in understanding what economic means should be employed to achieve charitable ends.  Along the way they have stumbled in deciding to whom they should grant Catholic charitable resources.

Charity is an individual choice and act. Organization of the charitable acts is fine in theory, but has often become subversion.

It is not charity to forcibly take the money from one person to give it to another.  Government programs to redistribute wealth are not charity.   Therefore, the political activist groups which support and lobby for such forcible redistribution should not be funded by the USCCB. 

Our confused leftie-catholics need also to attend to the fact that the Bishops have been diverting charitable dollars to decidedly anti- and un-catholic activities. 

The USCCB defunded ACORN not because of its subversive and immoral activities, but because of embezzlement within the organization.  A list of recently defunded and organizations which still need defunding exists at the American Life League site. 

Some people find the diversion of Catholic charity towards activities which are against Church Teaching to be "sophisticated political philosophy".  The rest of us see it as fraudulently immoral.
Those of us who have not lost our minds await further reformation of the USCCB to become more adherent to Church teaching.

Our moral "leaders" should be making personal efforts to adhere to the precepts of their stated religion.

Pharmer will be diverting contributions which could  have gone to the Campaign for Human Development to a favorite, local pro-life charity.
