The heads-up four

The RC bishop of Madison WI, a Big Ten city, is diverting contribs to ACORN-besmirched Catholic Campaign for Human Devel:

As he did last year, Bishop [Robert C.] Morlino chose to allocate the national campaign’s portion of the collection to a different cause.

Last year, the funds were sent to the Hurricane Ike recovery fund, and this year he allocated the contributions to the Little Sisters of the Poor, who have an international outreach to the elderly.

Millions for the Little Sisters, not one cent for community organizing!  (Thousands?)

He’s one of “at least” four bps who diverted $ from CCHD this time around.  The others:

Bishop John O. Barres of Allentown, Pennsylvania; Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska; . . . and Bishop Robert J. Baker of Birmingham, Alabama.

This even after

Bishop Roger Morin [New Orleans], chairman of the USCCB’s subcommittee on the CCHD, delivered a passionate plea to the bishops’ plenary meeting last week, pledging the CCHD’s commitment to ensure grantees’ respect for Catholic teaching.

They didn’t believe him.  Or did not take him seriously.  Tsk, tsk.
