    The American Life League has released an investigative report on the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development, which, it turns out, has been funding dozens of thoroughly unchristian organizations in its fight against domestic poverty. Catholics in the pews who have given to the annual CCHD collection might not be happy to learn that the program’s efforts are frequently right out of line with it’s “fight poverty: defend human dignity” slogan.

    At Acton, we believe that in the long run, the poor are harmed by patronizing aid schemes that, well intentioned though they may be, don’t account for the dignity of the human person whom they try to help. It’s certainly inconvenient that you can’t end poverty by giving lots of people lots of money, but we’ve tried just that for decades, and poverty is nowhere near eradicated.

    From the USCCB website this year:

    Of course maybe the ploy will work. After all, even if the CCHD does no harm, if Catholics contribute to help those pesky poor people there will be less money to spend fighting abortion. So let's call helping pesky poor people Marxism and the CCHD pro-abortion.

    Mental note to myself: The American Life League spends its budget perpetrating lies.
