Quote:USCCB Belongs to Pro-Abort Coalition Supporting Kagan with Video Ad
By Kathleen Gilbert

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 18, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A civil rights coalition that boasts the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) among its members has published a 30-second ad endorsing Solicitor General Elena Kagan, who is pro-abortion and homosexualist, for the Supreme Court.

The advertisement, which lists Kagan's various achievements while President Obama describes the ideal Supreme Court nominee in a voiceover, is available on the website of The Coalition for Constitutional Values, a project of the Leadership Counsel for Civil and Human Rights (LCCHR). The Coalition for Constitutional Values also re-published a statement praising Kagan from the Human Rights Campaign, a leading homosexualist group in the U.S.

The pro-abortion and homosexualist lobbying activities of LCCHR, whose members must pay a $1000-minimum annual membership fee, are well-documented. On its website, the group lists the "right to privacy and choice" of abortion as among women's rights, and pushes for same-sex "marriage" and other homosexualist legislation as a matter of civil "rights."

Along with the U.S. Bishops, among LCCHR's coalition members are listed top pro-homosexuality and abortion groups, including the Human Rights Campaign, Lambda Legal, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Organization for Women, the National Partnership for Women and Families, and Planned Parenthood.

Bishop Robert Vasa of Baker, Oregon expressed concern in February after Deal Hudson of Inside Catholic pointed out the USCCB's membership in the organization, saying: "I am not well enough versed in the 'politics' of such associations to make any criticism of the motives or justifications which might be provided but, on the face of it, I would have to agree that support of this organization and an active endorsement of its principles and purposes would appear to be problematic.”

The USCCB did not respond to a LifeSiteNews.com request for comment as of press time.

After the Kagan video was released, Hudson again called on the USCCB to end the scandal.

"The avid support for Elena Kagan, whose support for abortion 'rights' has been widely documented, must be regarded as the final straw, a clear signal that the USCCB needs to withdraw from membership in the Leadership Conference for Civil and Human Rights," remarked Hudson.

Excerpt from today's reading.

Acts:20:28
"I know that after my departure savage wolves will come among you,
and they will not spare the flock.
And from your own group, men will come forward perverting the truth
to draw the disciples away after them.
So be vigilant...."
Par the course, par the course!!

Lord help us all!!!! End this crap!!!  :pray:
Aside from the open apostasy of the people running the USCCB, this is a good example of why the Church should stay far clear of "community organizing."  All these groups and sub-groups and committees and so on are interdependent in so many ways.  If you support one group that looks acceptable, you don't know what their "coalition members" are doing, and what other groups those are supporting, and so on.  The money and favors flow so many directions that it's impossible to ever track it all.  The CCHD model just doesn't work and needs to be scrapped immediately.
This can not be. This can not be.

The worst part is how they get away with it.

Yes and no, I've never seen them go so far as to not decry abortion in strong language.
