Bishop Morin Defends CCHD

Do you wonder if Bishop Morin and Bishop Baker ever talked in the hallways about The Catholic Campaign for Human Development? The Bishop of Biloxi gave a spirited defense of the agency under his care.

Bishop Morin said he believes much of the criticism of CCHD comes from people who “simply are not in favor of the church’s social teaching.”

The blowback from conservative sites has already begun.Do the bishops realize that they often just stoke the fires when they speak up in this way?

The collection comes your way via the second basket this weekend in many parishes. Give more, give none, and if the latter, what’s your suggestion?

    There are better places to give your money.

    It is precisely because I do honor Church teachings on social justice and concern for the poor that I will not give one dime to CCHD!
    I do not believe that money contributed to CCHD goes to the poor as CCHD would have us think it does.
    I believe that much of it is used to further radical left-wing political causes whose agendas go contrary to Church teaching.
    Indeed, there are better places to give my money if I truly want to help the poor. I don’t need organizations like the CCHD to be my “middleman.”

    *sigh* We have been waiting breathlessly to hear from our Bishop since March of 2009 after being without a bishop at all for quite some time. This being his first public statement in all these months… It’s a bit disheartening.
