CCHD - Don't they get it?

The folks at the Catholic Campaign for Human Development simply don't seem to get it.

After all of the bad press they have received regarding their giving money to non-Catholic groups such as ACORN, but they just don't seem to get it.

Each year, CCHD awards a Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award to one young adult Catholic who exemplifies leadership, energy, faith, and a commitment to addressing the root causes of poverty in his or her community. This year, they awarded it to
Stephanie Garza, who works with the Southwest Organizing Project (SWOP) to empower parents as advocates for their families, schools, and communities.

So, even after all that they were criticized for, they decided to give the award to someone who is a not only a "Community Organizer" (her words not mine) for a non-Catholic organization but also assists illegal aliens.

The folks at CCHD are therefore the recipients of the very first "SLAP OFF THE BACK OF THE HEAD AWARD" for not thinking (or maybe they were just trying to thumb their nose at the rest of us.)

Congratulations CCHD!
