As many of you know, last year because of you and all of the Catholic bloggers, we were able to get USCCB to stop Catholic Committee on Human Development (CCHD) from funding ACORN. At that time, CCHD held off as long as they could, until the pressure got too much and stopped funding them.
However, the most recent video showing ACORN telling a "pimp and hooker" in NYC, Baltimore and Washington DC how to avoid takes and evading the law, esp. with child prostitution.
If you have not seen the video, go here. Here is the Baltimore video. I mean they are right out of Hollywood casting -- Huggy Bear and his girlfriend.
This really leads me to question what the groups are really doing with the CCHD money?
Therefore, I am calling on all my readers and all Catholic bloggers to once again to call for the shutting down of CCHD. Once shut down, reform it, so that money goes only to Catholic organizations that are faithful to the Church, not themselves.
The only way that Archbishop Wuerl and the members of the USCCB will get the message is if we stop funding them.
UPDATE: It seems that ACORN was operating ILLEGALLY after November 2006 in Maryland. CCHD was still giving them money. Doesn't anyone from CCHD check these sorts of things or do they rely on the "honest" answers given to them by the various organizations.
THIS IS ALL THE MORE REASON TO SHUT DOWN CCHD and START OVER!
