At age five, 1954, "the Bishop" (Chicago's Cardinal Stritch) stood over me and said, I had to "stop babbling" about what the priest did to me. It took me 40 years to talk about it again. Today, I babble.

HUD funds Catholic Charities, not the Church. Lie Number gazillion

I have to laugh at the Church ploy: to say everywhere, we have to stop our charity work due to large lump sum payments to plaintiffs:

Check out for example how much TAXPAYER money goes to Catholic Charities so it can do its charity work in housing at the HUD website:

FY 2006 Continuum of Care and
FY 2007 Emergency Shelter Grants

Here is an example:

Los Angeles Catholic Charities:
PROGRAM REVENUES (in thousands)

Government $ 18,903
Contributions 4,499
Foundations 2,334
Sales of Goods
& Services 2,046

$18 millionfrom HUD to Catholic Charities in LA alone in one year alone, then $4.5 million from people in the pews, not from some gallant effort on the part of the Vatican, like selling a frescoe or two and solving world hunger. They hit up foundations for another $2.3 million.

But MORE THAN HALF comes from Uncle Sam, Me and You, the plaintiffs give huge chunks of their settlements to the IRS and then through Housing and Urban Development grants it goes back to the Catholic Church....

Hey that's a good job for a pedophile priest the church has no idea what to do with, grant application writing.
