Socon or Bust has been online for over five years now. Three of those years have been substantially devoted to exposing the massive social justice fraud in the Catholic Church in Canada. It’s therefore fitting that the final post here at Socon or Bust should offer a few closing remarks on Development & Peace.
As at the end of 2011, Socon or Bust and LifeSiteNews have uncovered 53 D&P sponsored groups which hold beliefs which are fundamentally opposed to Catholic teaching in one or more of the following areas: abortion, infanticide, contraception, homosexuality, Marxism, feminism, and even overt anti-Catholicism. (A full diary of our posts on the abortion saga involving D&P can be permanently accessed by visiting our archived blog.)
After being elected as CCCB president, Archbishop Richard Smith asked us to “trust the bishops“, while seemingly being unaware that he was being hosted by feminists during his recent trip to Haiti. This 53rd group, uncovered by a Socon or Bust reader, was also a beneficiary of George Soros’s largesse. George gave APROSIFA a $9500 grant to translate to Creole the book “Where there is no doctor“ which has a chapter on how to self-abort. And as if this was not bad enough – shocker of all shockers! – if you meander over to D&P’s website and access their Haiti page, you won’t see any groups identified.
It’s all part of their major problem with transparency which continues to this day, despite the so-called “reforms”.
The problem with Development & Peace is part of a larger problem with the Catholic Church’s global social justice industry which, in turn, is part of bigger problem of corruption in almost every area of Church life. As an aside, this is also especially true about the so-called Catholic media who prefer to secure the good graces of weak and compromised bishops rather than to report the truth, so authentic renewal can genuinely begin. The lapdog ”yes men” press are no true friends of the Church. I once told a homosexualist who was berating me for my alleged hatred of homosexuals: “Does love always say yes?” She never responded.
The imbroglio concerning Development & Peace is part of a larger problem with the Catholic Church’s identity. Instead of doing authentic social justice, we farmed it out to the secular world. And the tragic results are before us today. It’s time for all Catholics to hit the reset button, relying less on the world to do charitable work and more on ourselves.
I want to thank all of you who have offered us support here at Socon or Bust throughout the years. Your words of support and encouragement have edified and sustained Steve and I.
