PLEASE BOYCOTT the Second Collection for the “Catholic Campaign for Human Development” during Mass, Saturday/Sunday, November 21-22, 2009

The American Life League (ALL) has launched a boycott campaign to draw attention to a scandal. The second collection at all Nov. 21-22 Masses will be for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
Pro-Life Action of Oregon and A.L.L. are advising pro-life Catholics to abstain from donating to the CCHD on Nov. 21-22 due to their grantees’ support for:
- family planning
- sex education
- same-sex marriage
- birth control
- decriminalization of prostitution
Includes the video, ‘Join the CCHD Boycott.’ Key pro-life Catholics working on this project: Judie Brown, Stephanie Block, and Mary Ann Kreitzer
” . . . organizations being funded by the CCHD are organizations connected to Saul Alinsky. Alinsky is best known as a socialist community organizer who wrote Rules for Radicals. Dedicated to Lucifer, this book is the authoritative blueprint for radical activism. His teachings revolve around the principle that the ends justify the means, and he promotes the Marxist concept of continuous class warfare. These principles are the very foundation of the various Alinskyan networks in existence.
The number-one recipient of all CCHD funds is the Industrial Areas Foundation**, which was created by Alinsky himself. Other Alinskyan organizing groups receiving CCHD grant money are People Improving Communities through Organizing (PICO), Direct Action and Research Training (DART) and the Gamaliel Foundation.
These are the facts. The CCHD is funding organizations whose agendas and strategies are in complete contradiction of Church teaching.
** Industrial Areas Foundation IAF — the Northwest IAF affiliate, in Oregon, is known as the Metropolitan Alliance for the Common Good – MACG, and on that page is a Powell’s Books ad for MACG’s recommended books. These books are by Saul Alinsky and other radicals. The Catholic Sentinel has featured MACG several times.
