Hattip to commenter Mary Ann Kreitzer and Rich Leonardi at Ten Reasons in regard to the above video. I join in Tito’s call for a boycott of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. Last year in this post I quoted the statement of the late Father Neuhaus, and his thoughts remain just as relevant today:
“Which brings me, finally, to another and related matter that will surely be discussed in Baltimore and deserves to be on the agenda. The Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is an annual collection in parishes, usually on one of the last two Sundays in November. It used to be called the Catholic Campaign for Human Development but the Catholic was dropped, which is just as well since it has nothing to do with Catholicism, except that Catholics are asked to pay for it. Some bishops* no longer allow the CHD collection in their dioceses, and more should not allow it. In fact, CHD, misbegotten in concept and corrupt in practice, should, at long last, be terminated.
