Obama Shuts Down His Catholic Advisory Council?

It’s difficult to accertain this, but it appears Barack Obama has dissolved his Catholic National Advisory Council.

He had gotten some flack for his sham council and rightly so. It consisted mainly of liberal cafeteria Catholics such as pro-abortion Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius, who has been all but excommunicated, having been instructed not to receive Holy Communion. Obama’s “Catholic” council was about as Catholic as John Shelby Spong is Christian.

Perhaps his campaign considered it wasn’t working in pulling the wool over Catholic eyes and has therefore quietly shut it down.

Bill Donohue, the high strung head of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights (a group that has no official recognition from the Catholic Church) issued a press release (a regular activity of his) demanding that Barack Obama dissolve his Catholic Advisory Council. It seems that either it is wrong for Senator Obama to seek advice from Catholics or it is wrong for Catholics to advise Obama.

Members of the Catholic Advisory Council responded to Donohue, maybe giving him more attention than he deserved (though giving him what he most lusts for).

Donohue wasn't satisfied and had his staff place haraging telephone calls to the Obama campaigning demanding to know if Obama had conformed to the instructions made by this conservative political operative.

Guess what? The Obama campaign didn't return his calls. (best saved nickel ever).

Now, and this gets rich, Donohue, not recognizing a snub when he sees it, has decided that since no one called him back, it must mean that the campaign dissolved the Catholic Advisory Council.

I tested this practice by placing a call to the Pope asking him if the College of Cardinals still exists. The Pope has one more day to call us back or we assume that there no longer is a College of Cardinals.

I see the blogger of "Catholics for Obama" has graced us with a visit.

If you know the whereabouts of the Catholic National Advisory Council, do let us know.
