U. S. Catholic Bishops Cut Off Funds to ACORN

Kudos to U. S. Roman Catholic bishops for cutting off all funds to ACORN. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (There’s a scary title.) had been making grants to ACORN.

Now I could ask why the heck the Cartholicks were giving uberleftist pro-abortion subverters of democracy like ACORN money in the first place. But I’m trying to be charitable this morning.

If you were to actually ask that perfectly reasonable question, Mark, the answer would be Holy Mother Church, like the Episcopal Church, has an awful lot of lefties in her ranks. Unlike the Episcopal Church, the left's numbers in the Catholic Church are declining. They are on the run, thanks to the good efforts of John Paul II and Benedict XVI; not that it wasn't a close call.

Sadly, the same can't be said for the Episcopal Church which, with the expected departure of the Diocese of Fort Worth this weekend, will soon be making its final charge, virtually unopposed, into irrelevancy. What a sad end to a once noble institution.

Thanks, BB, for answering with your usual charitable and on target manner. :)
