Thanks to work by those such as Real Catholic TV, the USCCB is under a little heat for their support of organizations who consistently work against Catholic teaching.
The Church teaches us that, in order to do good, we're not to cooperate with evil. Yet isn't this exactly what the USCCB is doing, when they partner with so many organizations that promote the tenets of the sexual revolution (abortion, homosexuality, birth control, etc.)?
How can I support my local parish, when I know that it has to turn over a particular % to the Diocese, who in turn financially supports the USCCB? Can I give a check with a note that says "Only for local parish support"? If I don't put anything in the basket, I know I'm shortchanging my parish. So I still give. But I ain't happy about it. I know God loves a cheerful giver, and He's not too happy with an "uncheerful" giver, but how does He feel about us middle-of-the-road guys - the "mixed feelings" givers?
Check out Real Catholic TV's latest, and keep an eye out at the :50 mark - they've picked up some art from the good ol' Cartoon Blog to highlight their news.

Real Catholic TV has a couple of reports on John Carr, the guy who heads the U.S. bishops' Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development.
He's been there for quite some time, and apparently, through the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (that group again), he's directed funding to a number of organizations that undermine Catholic teaching, most notably something called the Center for Community Change.
We have some good and courageous bishops, but time and time again the USCCB seems to be nothing more than an arm of the Democratic party. Seems we need a super-duper pest control company to weed out the liberal bugs at the USCCB. Judas would be proud of this group.
