Your collection dollars at work

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 15, 2005

If you happen to be an American citizen, and you happen to be Catholic, would you support an organization whose legislative priorities include a promise to:

Oppose legislation that would require state and local law enforcement agencies to detain criminal illegal aliens within the course of their regular duties, under the penalty of the loss of federal funds for non-cooperation with the policy.

Think about it. I'll have more questions to follow.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Uncle Diogenes, Is the group the USCCB?

  • Posted by: - Apr. 15, 2005 5:40 PM ET USA

    There are very good reasons for opposing this legislation. The USCCB has published its legislative agenda with which, in part or in whole, Diogenes disagrees. Gee, there's a big surprise.

    Do my dollars that go to the USCCB also go to the ACLU? http://www.aclu.org/ImmigrantsRights/ImmigrantsRights.cfm?ID=13683&c=22

    Quick answer: nope. I'll be very interested to hear the details on this one. In my very leftist home town of Palo Alto, California, I'll be looking to see whether the group is one that my donations to my parish have been supporting. If I were a betting man...

    Gee, now, what kind of organization would do that? None whose members even dip their fingers in holy water, I'll bet! Then again, maybe they thought the holy water was potable and forgot to make the sign of the cross.
