ACORN’s Best Friend: CCHD

It’s that time of year when the Roman Catholic church in the United States conducts its Thanksgiving collection to help the poor.

Unfortunately, the money collected doesn’t go to help the poor.  The money goes to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), a corrupt Marxist charity that funds Saul Alinsky-inspired activist groups.

CCHD was founded in the late 1960s around the same time as its ideological soulmate, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

If you love this country, you shouldn’t be giving money to CCHD which funds America’s domestic enemies.

Here’s a profile I did of CCHD that ran in the September 2009 edition of Foundation Watch. (PDF)
