So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

The wayward practices of Development and Peace.

Development and Peace (D&P), it as been reported on more than one occasion (and noted here), supports un-Catholic activity, activity which is gravely immoral and which constitutes a betrayal of Catholics who gave their money to an organization they thought conformed to Catholic teaching.
“We can’t have Catholic money going to organizations that don’t have respect for human life from the very time of conception onward,” said Jim Hughes, president of Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family political lobby group.

“It’s time for the bishops to shake this whole thing up and put into positions of authority people who are going to be careful about whom they hire and which organizations they give money to,” Hughes told LifeSiteNews.
Until such a time that D&P can be trusted to carry out its mission in complete conformity to Catholic teaching, Catholics must stop giving support of any kind to D&P.
LifeSiteNews has done the necessary homework to expose D&P's misdirection of funds. The exemplary work by LifeSiteNews which has uncovered repeated examples of irresponsible allocation of funds by D&P administrators should motivate the Bishops to act to curb the exploitation of Catholics in the pews who trust that their money supports worthy causes that are not in conflict with Catholic teaching, i.e., the teaching of Jesus Christ. That a group like D&P has been permitted access to parishes to fundraise and disseminate misinformation is nothing short of a complete abuse of trust by D&P representatives and a lack of due oversight by priests and bishops who should have better vetted the highly problematic programs D&P supports.

End support to Development and Peace. Give to more worthy charities.

Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.
