Alinsky Rules the Catholic Campaign for Radical Human Development

Michael Voris: Catholic Investigative AgencyCheck out Real Catholic TV‘s new project: Catholic Investigative Agency. First up in the series: CCHD and Alinsky! You’ll need to sign up for an account (free or premium—$10 a month— then look for the link to special programs on the right. Or use this link after you log in. You can view it online or order the DVD. Mine got  here really fast! DVD’s are just $5 each and shipping is a dollar. Get several of these and give them to your fellow parishioners.

Rules for RadicalsMost Catholics probably don’t even know who Saul Alinsky was. Or that his infiltration of the Church and corruption of priests (not all of them, just a lot of them!) was accomplished decades ago. And his legacy is still going strong—and growing! We need to let people know about this. Spread the word about the truth of Alinsky and his rules for radical priests and religious! (By the way, most of the ones who were seriously corrupted by Alinsky left the priesthood before they died. Most priests are good, devoted men and I love our priests!)

Read Rules for Radicals for yourself. I did. What an eye-opening, mind-blowing experience. And a disgusting one too. Anyone who thinks he or she can be an Alinsky-ite and a Christian is deluded. And, sadly, a lot of people are just that deluded.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

    Didn’t Jacques Maritain, Catholic philosopher, praise Alinsky’s work?

    • Disciple says:

      I don’t know. If he did, he was in grave error. A lot of Catholics have praised Saul Alinsky and have followed his teachings. They were and are in grave error. You can’t be Catholic and an Alinsky-ite. You can pretend to be Catholic while really being a follower of Alinsky. But you can’t really be one. To quote (and paraphrase) the Lord:

      “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both [Christ and Saul Alinsky].” Matthew 6:24.

      Good to hear from you, Dharmashaiva. I’ve been thinking about you, wondering how you were. How are you? :)

  2. Dharmashaiva says:

    Hi Disciple, I’m doing well, thank you. :-)

    Can a Catholic learn techniques of community organizing from Alinsky?

    • Disciple says:

      He can. But the question is not “can he learn techniques?” but rather, “what kind of techniques can one learn from Alinsky?” You can learn something from anyone. But there are things I don’t want to learn. I don’t want to learn how to think that Lucifer is a good role model. I don’t want to learn techniques that allow me to ram ideas down other people’s throats, pretending that their own souls and desires mean nothing. I don’t want to use people to get what I want.

      You can learn those things from Saul Alinsky. But why would you want to?

      I’m glad you’ve been well, Dharmashaiva. :) I’ve been doing well too. And I’ve been learning so much! I’ve even been reading Plato’s The Laws. And enjoying it! Who’da? ;)

      A pingback and it’s from another blog instead of just me citing myself in a post, how about that? ;) Greetings, Ann. The connections between Alinsky and the USCCB and the CCHD are troubling, indeed. You know, I’ve been Catholic for 14 years now and I never knew until this year that the USCCB has absolutely no authority in the Church, not here in the U.S. or anywhere else. Their teachings are not binding upon any Catholic anywhere. An individual bishop has authority in his own diocese, he teaches with the Magisterium in his diocese. But the USCCB is just a group of bishops. Basically, the USCCB is, at best, a mere waste of time, and, at worst, the kind of “organization” that breeds confusion and discontent. Witness the CCHD mess.

      Cardinal Ratzinger mentions bishops’ conferences in the book the Ratzinger Report. Judie Brown writes about it in her book, Saving Those Damned Catholics. Neither the Cardinal (now our beloved and beleaguered Pope) nor Brown pull any punches. God bless ’em!

      Thanks for reading and thanks for the pingback, Ann. Peace be to you.
