Cash for Commies Edition!

By Michael Hichborn, Lepanto Institute

So after Lepanto uncovered $240,000 of Catholic cash going to an organization that helps Planned Parenthood, and another $280,000 to a pro-homosexual, pro-abortion group — guess who the Catholic bishops gave funding to in Indiana?

COMMUNISTS.

No — this isn’t a joke.

The Indianapolis Workers’ Justice Center (IWJC) received a $35,000 grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).  Not only has the IWJC graciously played the host for the Central Indiana Democratic Socialists of America (next meeting November 18th — bring your own borscht), but this chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America is notoriously pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, and pro-transgender.

Does it get worse?  You bet it does, comrade!

The IWJC itself promoted the LGBT propaganda film “Pride” back in June 2018.  Its Facebook pages lists as “friends” organizations such as the notorious pro-abortion group NOW, other DSA affiliates, and is an affiliate of the Marxist umbrella group Interfaith Workers Justice.

No Catholic can subscribe even to moderate Socialism.  These are not our words, they are the words of Pope Saint John XXIII — the once great hope of the socialist left until Pope Francis arrived to revive their flagging spirits.

…but don’t ever suggest that this “spirit” is the Holy Spirit.  Whatever this spirit is, it surely doesn’t require the support of the Catholic faithful.  One more reason why Catholics should do three things right now:

  1. Refuse to donate one dime to the CCHD collection.
  2. Inform our pastors and bishops and beg them not to take the CCHD collection.
  3. Contact the CCHD and DEMAND ANSWERS.

Never forget that this was the same vile organization that produced — not saints — but men like Barack Obama.
