The Catholic Volunteer Network (CVN) was in the news last year, because they decided to honor Chris "I get a thrill up my leg for Obama" Matthews, at their annual dinner. If you recall, they were to have the dinner at the Franciscan Monastery. However, the Catholic blogospher went wild with thsi story and our colleagues over at Restore DC Catholicism even picketed the event. Well, CVN moved the event to an undisclosed location but still gave Chris the award.
Well, this year they have seemed to learn some lessons but not all.
First, they are not holding the event at the Franciscan Monastery but at the National Press Club. So,no scandal at a Catholic institution.
Second, they are honoring Comcast. Now, I was a Comcast client but I do seem to remember that Comcast offered Playboy and other porn channels. Now, Comcast is probably a huge supporter of CVN but they make a good amount o revenue off of porn and anti-Catholic shows/channels.
Finally, look who is the featured speaker...Cokie Roberts. Now, we all remember Cokie, as we media person who supports gay marriage, supports abortion and has criticised His Holiness.
My question to CVN is: Why do you have the word "Catholic" in your name? I mean, if you are going to honor a business which makes a living off of porn (although not the total business), and have speakers who are opposed to the Catholic faith, why bother with the word "Catholic." Just call your self something else.
If anyone from CVN is reading this, I would love to hear from you.
