Pro-Obama Catholic group apparently folds
Catholic World News - September 02, 2010
Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, the pro-Obama organization that presented itself as “inspired by Gospel values and the rich history of Catholic social teaching,” has apparently folded.
“I’ve long asserted that CACG was a campaign organization and not a non-partisan advocate of Catholic Social Teaching as many news outfits have gullibly or willfully maintained,” said Jack Smith, editor of the newspaper of the Diocese of Kansas City - St. Joseph. “With the president elected and health care passed, it looks, for now, like the campaign is over.”

This is good news indeed! Now let's all pray that "Catholics United," another Ptoemkin "Catholic" organization, will fold next.

Heidiho, it's time to pack these cynical Potemkin "Catholic" organizations until next election time.
