NO to CCHD on Aug. 10 and 11

Kudos to our colleague over at Restore DC Catholicism.  I have "copied" this from her website and I encourage all of you NOT to donate. 

Discussing the key points problems does not seem to work.  Shame does not work.  Therefore, withholding money is the last resort.


In the Archdiocese of Washington, the second collection for the Masses of Aug 10-11 will be for something called "Communications and Human Development". It's really for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. In recent years, the CCHD has garnered some very bad publicity - and yes, the CCHD has earned its terrible reputation in spades. I suppose the collectors think that by obfuscating the name of the collection that they can somehow bypass the bad press and fool Catholics into donating.

We are in the process of spreading the word.  P
lease visit the sites of www.reformCCHDnow.com and www.CatholicMediaCoalition.org.

Now it's time to take action! What to do?

  1. Spread word of the existence of ReformCCHDNow.com, CatholicMediaCoalition.org and this blog so that others can avail themselves of the research contanined therein.
  2. Use social media to spread word of the boycott. It would be helpful to use the hashtag #no2cchd in your Facebook and/or Twitter messages.
  3. Questions/comments/suggestions? Please post via the comments.
  4. Above all, pray that the Lord have mercy upon those who exploit His Church for anti-God causes and that evil be expunged from this Bride of Christ.
