Bishop Bruskewitz on CCHD: Bishop Morin Was a “Bit Too Dismissive” of Concerns

Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska explained in an interview with LifeSiteNews.com today his reasons for dropping the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) collection in his diocese, saying that CCHD head Bishop Roger Morin was “a little bit too dismissive” of concerns brought against the organization. Bishop Bruskewitz is one of four bishops confirmed so far to have chosen not to take up the collection this year for the national CCHD, the USCCB’s domestic anti-poverty arm. “We question the ideology of [CCHD],” the bishop explained in the interview, “and … we are shocked at the scandalous participation with the ACORN organization and also the participation with other organizations of questionable moral values or standards.”
