This is rich. Yo! Your Eminence! We need to check out our own backyard social justice cabal and start moving against it before we start telling everyone that society has a problem.
It’s a bit much….really.
Paycheck in Development & Peace
Women for Change was actually covered by Socon or Bust back in 2011 (see “Give us your money, and don’t ask too many questions“).
It’s listed as Group number 33 on our list.
If a name like “Women for Change” doesn’t ring any bells with you, you should not be in charge of giving away Catholic money in 2014. Sorry to be so blunt, but you really belong with Aunt Mae, knitting something, and by saying that I don’t mean any disrespect to Aunt Mae.
Squeaker made some observations about LifeSite’s report here.
Nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, has changed with the modus operandi of Development and Peace.
1. They are still funding pro-abort groups and not just Women for Change.
2. They are not listing all of their pro-abort groups on the website.
3. They are still scrubbing their website when they get caught partnering with abortion-pushers.
4. The Canadian bishops are still promoting Development & Peace, and side-stepping their moral responsibility to clean up the social justice charade.
5. Canadian Catholic donations are still going to fund the promotion of the slaughter of unborn children.
6. And lastly, Socon or Bust still is asking faithful Catholics to put a BIG ZERO on the Development & Peace envelope and put some some pro-life literature in it.

Time for a new Board.
Without courage, our society will wither in the face of evil.
Folks, I want to thank you all for your prayers, and I think in the future I will keep the blog out of my personal affairs. Don’t get me wrong, I really do need and appreciate the prayers. In fact, if I may say so, I feel like Superman right now! No kidding. There’s a lot of holy people praying for me right now, and what can I say but thank you! I can certainly experience God’s peace through this. I actually feel kind of guilty in “stealing” your time.
No problems with my health, and family is in tact. So, those are the important things and I give thanks that those things are still in tact. Isn’t everything else second banana? Sorry for worrying some of you. I am very touched that so many of you have expressed personal support.
My problem is a “little” legal problem (not related to blogging) I need to extradite myself from. But the good news is since I’m a blogger, I know the legal ropes.
I always knew being a blogger would pay off one day. Helps develop thick skin to punch back.
Squeaker in Catholic Scandals, Development & Peace
It grieves me to report that despite improvements made in recent years, Development and Peace is still not trustworthy yet. As a result Socon or Bust recommends that the boycott of D&P continue during this upcoming Lent. Consider instead making your donations to Chalice, a faithful and well-managed charity.
The D&P website shows very, very, very few partners, so you really don’t know where your money is going. Despite this, there remain anti-Catholic, anti-life partners on their website.
Worse, officials I spoke with recently insisted that these partners were clean, despite the incontrovertible evidence Socon or Bust had uncovered against them some time ago. This suggests that some people are either still in denial or just too naive. Either way, the cleanup at D&P still has a loooooong way to go.
Don’t be played for a fool. Put your donations in a safer place.
“Nightmare – The Sequel” is about to befall me and my family. Would like Socon or Bust readers to pray for us.
Blogging will be lighter than usual.

Incredible. One of the best presentations on the subject of sex and contraception. These guys deserve a medal for this presentation.
This Venezuelan protester is holding a sign (see below) that reads:
When I was a rock star Catholic Apologist back in the late 90s and early part of the century , I did some real damage to the careers of aspiring Protestant apologists who were making a living off of attacking Catholic dogmas.
One of the central issues that got my hackles up were the attacks on Our Lady’s perpetual virginity. The only real argument that is still kicked around which questions this teaching involves the so-called ‘brothers of the Lord’. I’ve been doing some research on this question since 2005, trying to pin down who these so-called “brothers” were. (The Catholic position, of course, was that these brothers were not uterine brothers of the Lord, but rather only his tribal relatives who were referred generically to as Jesus’s “brothers”).
I must have gone through two dozen family trees in that time period, dispensing with all of them because I was not content with one or more major drawbacks in each scenario. It’s the most frustrating research that I have ever done. Anyhow, I think I have a possible solution, based on seemingly innocuous archaeological evidence that I tripped upon the other day which helps me close the loop on my theory. I’m pretty excited about it, and I hope to share it with you all once I get some time to write it up…which, with current workload and spare time….is….like…..NEVER, man.
During the course of my research I came in contact with liberal scholarship because I needed their source material to formulate my own theory. I can safely tell you all that liberal biblical scholars have no shame whatsoever. I knew they were pretty wacky, but I had no idea to the extent of their hubris and utter bullshit, when I started to read their works. No, really. It’s true. For them, it’s all about creating a name for themselves and “being a somebody”. In fact this latter observation is VERY obvious from their insane and fact-changing conclusions. It’s quite pathetic, actually. Liberal biblical scholarship is to the bible what porn is to sex.

Get ready. This is the future of the West.
H/T Big Blue Wave.
Good article here. Strip the authority of heretics and dissenters until they see the light.
Paycheck in Catholicism, Socialism
I hope that Catholics, and especially the Holy Father, are paying attention to what is happening in Venezuela right now.
Marxist economic theories, because they are based on a false anthropology and theology, need to be soundly condemned.
That’s not happening right now by the Catholic Church and the Pope. And that’s a big mistake. Condemning one excess without condemning a much more dangerous one is a recipe for disaster because silence is tacit acceptance.
I’m with the Holy Father that we must root out corruption, and in politics and economics that starts with Marxism. We’re waiting for a clear and strong condemnation from Rome – not just about the violence that’s happening but of the anti-Catholic socialist theories that prop it up.
Unbridled capitalism is not the only toy in the Devil’s bag, Holy Father.
Paycheck in Canadian Politics
They’ve just ensured they will never be re-elected.
The world did not end because Gay Propaganda was not forced down everyone’s throats!
Hard to believe, but it’s true!

Catholics are good citizens, BUT, BUT as the good Archbishop says, there are limits to following Caesar.
Note to Obama and his socialist shills here in Canada….we did it once, we will do it again...if the same conditions warrant.
…who made sure that the only national anthem playing at the Bolshoy Ice Dome was O Canada.
We all need to remember to go for the real gold and not the fool’s gold.
