Canada's Development & Peace and Canadian Bishops feel "attacked"

It seems that when the going gets tough, hire a consultant. 

That is the case with the social justice arm of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops caught funding groups in other countries who were engaged in abortion. They actually blame bloggers and online journalists (must be LifeSiteNews) for for knocking them off their game. It seems that they are adopting the plan of CRS. Well, birds of a feather flock together. CRS, the social justice arm of the USCCB that was exposed by the Lepanto Insitute for its support of abortion services and other activiies not in conformity with the Church. CRS whose President earns $400,000.00 and whose Vice-President was paid out to leave because he "married" a man.

They'll give Canadians real good advice, I am sure. Good for bloggers and LifeSiteNews, I say. Let them have their protocols. If they think for a moment that we are going to stop fighting for the truth of Christ and His Church and the evil of abortion in all its gore, they are quite wrong.

The good folks at D&P seem not to care what happens when their social justice obsession goes awry. Perhaps they should mediate at this picture of a baby torn apart from its mother's womb for a while. Mething that the juxtaposition with the vultures and their carrion is quite apt. Yet, all we hear from Rome is that we speak too much on abortion and we're right-wingers if we don't buy into the unproven science of man-made climate change. The world is burning, babies are murdered, Christians are persecuted and the Bishop of Rome lectures us on science which is beyond his scope of understanding and authority. 

These folks never learn. They keep repeating the same thing and expect a different result. 

The CRS, D&P and the rest need to realise that we're not going away.

Not one penny friend, Not one penny to any of these.

The Canadian Catholic Organizations for Development and Peace will model its statement of principles on the “CRS Guiding Principles” developed by the American Catholic aid agency Catholic Relief Services.
The idea for a Canadian version of the statement of principles came up at a joint meeting of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops standing committee on Development and Peace and Development and Peace’s own standing liaison committee for relations with the bishops.
Like Development and Peace, the CRS has been criticized by online journalists and bloggers accusing it of working with organizations that support abortion and contraception. In 2010 LifeSite News questioned Development and Peace’s funding of a Jesuit-founded human rights organization because the Mexican organization had been cited along with organizations that advocated for legal access to abortion in a joint NGO report to the United Nations. Despite denials of any involvement in pro-abortion activities or any formal relationship with pro-abortion organizations, the accusations spurred a formal investigation by the CCCB and caused a crisis for Development and Peace’s public image and its fundraising efforts.

Definition of insanity: "Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result."

How about not giving money and support to organizations that don't promote abortion rights instead of hiring a spin-doctor firm to make people think it's OK to do so? I am grateful that my Bishop (+Mulhall) has withdrawn our support for D & P until they finally get their act together and ensure that Catholic dollars are not going to support inappropriate groups in the developing world.

This is a confusing article, confusing because they talk about two different things (protocol for dealing with troublesome bloggers, and principles to which the organization would supposedly adhere to in order to safeguard its Catholic identity). Two very different issues there.

Amen. Evil is good and good, evil. Such contempt for truth, for God's Holy Law.

I have not given them a penny for many many years and will not nor to the bureaucracy know as the CCCB. They have never responded to any of my concerns so they will never get my money. The mere mention of these 2 groups makes my blood boil. Enough is enough.
