Catholics end funding to ACORN over financial irregularities

Dennis Sadowski of Catholic News Service reports
    "that The Catholic Campaign for Human Development suspended funding a nationwide community organizing group after it was disclosed June 2 that nearly $1 million had been embezzled.

    Funding was suspended for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, popularly known as ACORN, because of the financial irregularities, said Ralph McCloud, executive director of CCHD, the U.S. bishops' domestic anti-poverty and social justice program."
That's nice, but they should have stopped it long ago because ACORN is dangerous, bad for the poor and bad for the country. Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Mennonites, et al need to start examining their heart for Jesus and stop taking government money to run government programs that cozy up to marxist organizations.
    "McCloud released information showing that CCHD funded more than 320 ACORN projects with grants totaling more than $7.3 million during the last 10 years. He said the community organization also had received funds since early in CCHD's history.

    CCHD's Web site reveals the campaign gave about $1.11 million to 40 ACORN affiliates in 2007 and $1.17 million to 45 affiliates in 2006.

    Over the years, some of the funds undoubtedly were used for voter registration drives, McCloud said."
And why did it take from June to October to suspend the funding? I'd like to be a fly on the wall. . .
