The Catholic Campaign for Human Development [CCHD] Catholic dollars funding left-wing politics for over forty years
that receives donations based on its promise to CCHD is an annual collection help the poor.
However, over a third of the money collected by the CCHD goes to Alinskyian organizing networks.
IAF Industrial Areas Foundation DART PICO Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now The names and acronyms are dizzying.
Alinskyian organizing networks operate using the theories of Saul Alinsky.
Alinsky wrote two books about organizing: Rules for Radicals and Reveille for Radicals
Alinsky teaches that in politics, the ends justify the means… …and he teaches the Marxist concept of class warfare.
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical; from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer." - Saul Alinsky, dedication of Rules for Radicals Alinsky dedicates Rules for Radicals to Satan Blessed Father Miguel Pro, Martyr
All the Alinskyian networks have fiercely left-wing political perspectives. That means they network with those who support abortion and homosexual rights.
All the Alinskyian networks spread the ideas of liberation theology - putting Christian labels on left-wing political ideas.
Alinskyian networks send the community organizer into a neighborhood with a predetermined agenda. Every local community organization in an Alinskyian network promotes the same programs – the same solutions – as every other. This isnt people power. Its the organizers power, taken from the people.

Most Alinskyian community organizations have member churches. They get money from Catholics through CCHD grants and… …they collect dues from their members – many Catholic parishes. Alinskyian organizers frequently run meetings in churches.
Organizing churches makes it seem that the political agenda of the Alinskyians is Church teaching. San Francisco IAF leader
Presidential nominee Barak Obamas primary work experience was as an Alinskyian community organizer.
While lead organizer in Chicago for the Developing Communities Project, CCHD gave it: * $40,000 in 1985, and * $33,000 in 1986.
Top Alinskyian organizers trained Obama. One mentor was the lead organizer for Gamaliel, which receives 4-5% of all CCHD grants. Gregory Galluzzo, ex-priest, head of the Gamaliel network
Another Obama mentor, Jerry Kellman, was trained by the IAF - founded by Saul Alinsky. The IAF receives about 16% of all CCHD grants annually. Jerry Kellman
After law school, Obama returned to Chicago and taught Alinskyian organizing to ACORN staff. Obama ran ACORNs 1992 voter- registration drive, Project Vote, and ACORN endorsed Obamas bid for the Illinois State Senate. ACORN has an alarming record of voter fraud (see for a list]. ACORN annually receives about 5% of CCHD grants.
Alinskyian organizing networks receive over a third of all Campaign grants every year. CCHD grants to the major Alinskyian networks These networks are political. They work closely with politicians – such as Barak Obama – and with political organizations that are fighting for abortion and homosexual rights.
The Alisnkyian networks seek an extreme leftist reorganization of the US. Despite good intentions, the hard lesson of history is that this economic restructuring doesnt help the poor. Soviet gulag
Catholics, who ought to be a powerful, consistent voice for moral values in society, are fragmented and ineffective, speaking with many, contradictory voices. The CCHD bears much of the responsibility for this problem.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development … …has poured millions into Alinskyian organizing. …and has been funding left-wing – pro-abortion, pro- homosexual – politics with Catholic donations for forty years.
