No sympathy here for Catholic Bishops as Obama screws them with executive order!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

Baltimore Archbishop William Lori isn’t smiling now!

Sorry for my choice of words in the title, but there didn’t seem to be anything more fitting then “screw,” which is what Obama (government generally) does to those whose hands are deep into the federal treasury.

Judy just now sent me the Bishops whining and moaning press release about King Obama’s latest declaration on gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination in agencies of the federal government (which includes federal contractors!).

And, by the way, since this is an Executive Order there is no opportunity to go to Congress for relief.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is, of course, a huge federal contractor.

[I thought I was done with the Bishops for today when I finished my previous post a short time ago.]

Do you think they and their Catholic flock will ever get it?  Once your hands are into Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!  Jesus knew, why don’t they?

From the USCCB (where mixed in with a lot of indignation about “religious freedom” they demonstrate their abject fear of losing their taxpayer funding):

WASHINGTON–The bishop-Chairmen of two USCCB Committees responded with great concern to President Obama’s July 21 executive order to prohibit federal government contractors from what the Administration deems “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” discrimination and to forbid “gender identity” discrimination in the employment of federal employees. The problems the bishops identify in the order relate both to the flaws in its core prohibitions, and to its lack of religious freedom protection.

[….]

Today’s executive order is unprecedented and extreme and should be opposed.

In the name of forbidding discrimination, this order implements discrimination. With the stroke of a pen, it lends the economic power of the federal government to a deeply flawed understanding of human sexuality, to which faithful Catholics and many other people of faith will not assent. As a result, the order will exclude federal contractors precisely on the basis of their religious beliefs.

[….]

As a result, even contractors [big ones like us!—ed] that disregard sexual inclination in employment face the possibility of exclusion from federal contracting if their employment policies or practices reflect religious or moral objections to extramarital sexual conduct.

Read it all, but don’t cry for them, I’m not!  Core beliefs or money? Core beliefs or money?  Which will it be?

Faux conservative lectures America on the border crisis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

“Conservative” columnist Kathyrn Jean Lopez is acting like a liberal—lecturing us in a guilt-trip laden rant on National Review Online.   I thought they were supposed to be conservative over there?

Ms. Lopez must know that the US Bishops and Catholic Charities are living off US taxpayer charity (aka our tax dollars). Disclaimer required when pimping for the Pope!

In her pontificating piece, Ms Lopez tells us that the Pope just wants us to give love and understanding to the border invaders.  (Hat tip: Paul)

‘Shepherd of the leading charitable organization in the world,’ she calls him.

How about they first admit that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Charities are receiving the majority of their funding to care for the “children” (and other refugees) from the American taxpayer through federal grants and contracts!

Here and here.

Surely the Pope knows that American taxpayers pay for their Christian charity! So he is in no position to lecture us!

And, surely Katheryn Jean Lopez isn’t living under a rock and has been following the news recently as the public is becoming increasingly aware of the greedy “religious” hands picking our pockets in the name of Christian and Jewish charity.

By the way, tell me! what is conservative about taxpayer dollars by the billions flowing to phony non-profits and “religious” charities that are completely unaccountable to the people who pay the do-gooders’ salaries?

I want the Bishops and the Pope to place a disclaimer on every guilt-tripping screed they write or is written for them by a supposed conservative like Lopez.  The disclaimer would go something like this:

The USCCB and Catholic charities are receiving (and have been for decades) the majority of their funding for their migration program as grants and contracts from the US government.

Then they can lecture all they want about “welcoming” and “protecting” the “children” (but few will listen!).

Ms. Lopez needs a disclaimer too!  Use secular media to spread the Gospel (here) she says!

One last thing, the US Bishops and Catholic Charities, as the leading resettlement agencies in the US, resettle more Muslims into America than any other resettlement agency contracted by the US State Department and use your money to do it.  (Just saying!)

For new readers:

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion of America is here.

The archive extends back several years and includes posts about the USCCB and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service receiving federal grants for many years, prior to this one, to care for the “unaccompanied alien children.”

Be sure to see this post about the Bishops visit to Central America in 2013—did they set the migration in motion?  Last year, they were predicting 60,000 “children” for 2014!
