Atheist Soros Funds Catholic Groups

AIM COLUMN  |  BY CLIFF KINCAID 

On the surface, it would appear that Soros would be opposed to many positions of the Catholic Church.

The critical role of the Catholic Church in passing national health care reform legislation is coming under serious media scrutiny. But the story has taken a strange turn. It has now been revealed that George Soros, the billionaire hedge fund operator and well-known atheist, has been pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into “progressive” Catholic groups that are significant players in the national debates over health care and immigration.

On the surface, it would appear that Soros would be opposed to many positions of the Catholic Church. A major financial backer of the ACLU, Soros supports such causes as drug legalization, the rights of “sex workers” and felons, euthanasia, radical feminism, abortion rights, and homosexual rights. He does all of this in the name of promoting an “open society.”

But a review of the records of his Open Society Institute finds that a group calling itself Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG) has received $200,000 from them over the last several years.

    The patriarchal corporation that is the Catholic Church has since its beginning misused the work and faith of Jesus Christ, protected pedophiles, and filled their parishioners with fear and guilt. I didn’t think they could slink any lower, my mistake.

    Not surprized at all; just flotsam from their now “banned” Marxist Liberation theology. When will it be apparent that teaching people to not nurture critical thinking,individualism and integrity, versus Collectivism, mob rule, and the endless mantra of pouring money down the black hole of Marxist “Progressive”- take care of the downtrodden ever wake-up the sheeple? Never, as Etienne Boetier wrote back in the 16th century. One takes care of hs/her own “house” by pulling themselves up by their own initiative;not welfare handouts. Then, historically, this country’s founders stated no foreign wars-“MYOB!” Nurture American (Founder’s) Nationalism,cultural contributions to civilization. Not encouraged in the Socialist public schools! A One World Orwellian scenario does neither, and will enslave us all, with the help of Marxists/Socialists playing w/semantics, like “Faith-based Initiatives-Big Gov’t intrusion/partnerships with churches. What happens when churches pimp for Federal funds as well. Major compromising contributing to the ruination of what we call the “free” America.

    Why does this story have a picture of Cardinals. This article is about Soros funding alleged Catholic groups, not the Catholic church. Wouldn’t you expect the media to scrutinize the church for trying to protect the lives of the unborn? To discerning curmudgeon who cant leave his name— The church does not pimp for funds. The church has used funds to care for the poor and the needy but this doesnt get the attention of the press. Churches, regardless of denomination, have saved the governemnt millions of dollars by asisting the poor through volunteerism.

    Your last sentence sums it up; the church has actually “enabled” the Socialist Gov’t to mestastize; and the comment stands: the church compromizes itself being “in bed” with the government; loses all independence of truly being a “separation of church and state.” Dangerous as well when linked with a Socialist/Marxist direction that is rapidly taking place.
    The poor, and their acceptance of the Socialist/Marxist/Left Liberal largesse, allows the “we are your overlords syndrome.” A compulsory H1N1 vaccine threatening jail,fines et al is a perfect example of the “we know what’s best for you” doublespeak.
    The government is a parasite off the churches’ “good works.”

    Go to discoverthenetworks.org to an archived article by Joel Mowbry,Aug 5,2002, entitled,”The Anti-Catholic Group:anti-religious feminsts are using Catholics for a free choice to oppose the Vatican and church hierarchy to raise millions f dollars for a Left-Liberal agenda;ergo:ABORTION. To cut to the chase, the Catholics For A Free Choice, perusing the group’s Form 990,the IRS tax forms for nonprofits that must be opened to the public, reveal that the CFFC entered the top tier of Washington Special Interest groups, raising millions of dollars, and it’s international subsidiaries, Catholics for a Free Choice, Latin America, and Catholics for a Free Decision(both abortion advocates)”raked in” more than 50 foundation grants,merely up to 2000! What now?
    Here is the crux: the file documents show that the use of he word “Catholic” seems rather disingenuous to say the least; CFFC and Catholic Carities, the largest “Independent” Catholic nonprofit, have had only one foundation donor in common for at least five years: George Soros and his Open Society Institute!
    Need we say more at this point than for those of you uninformed: Soros,whose devotion to Leftwing,Marxist causes and ideology goes back to the Soviet terror days.

    This is nothing but stealth funding for the evilest of purposes and that is to besmirch the name of Catholicism and divide the Bishops and hierarchy of the church from it’s flock! Bishops better wake up to the fact that some of this stealth funding is being used against them and the Church in a demonic way. The Catholic church is Soro’s main opposition and he knows he has to neutralize the church by having the administration go to Notre Dame and Georgetown is part of their plan to dupe Catholics and divide them. It is an internal, very well considered plan to win over the leftist Catholics and marginalize the faithful of the church. Soros knows that each time Socialism has failed has been because of Catholic opposition.

    You are correct; “stealth funding” in tandem with a “Shadow Government.” And it is not just traditional Catholics under assault from Socialist/Marxist cadres, who utilize semantics and front groups to camouflage their true agenda-total Communist takeover of the USA.
    There are so many Front Groups that it is mind-boggling. One cannot even entertain the thought of the old fashioned adage:”write to your Congressman,” since, at least 115 members of Congress are members of the Socialist Party(DSA)in the U.S.
    Socialism eventually morphs to Communism,masks off. A nation of morons,unschooled to not think for themselves, voted for a Socialist/Leftist One Worlder to be President, and his top”visitor”is the head honcho of SEIU, tied directly to the Communist Party. Secession, I say!
