Soros Money Funds Faith-Based Community Organizers

The enemy within, i.e. Judas, is much more effective than the enemy without. Hence George Soros, an atheist who thinks HE's God, funds numerous "faith-based" groups that are working to help advance his evil agenda. Stephanie Block, a researcher who studies community organizing groups, reports that "secular forces are dramatically expanding their investments in faith-based, Alinskyian organizing, too." She goes on to describe grants being made to to the Gamaliel Foundation. "which is...a network of faith-based Alinskyian community organizations." Gamaliel is a "progressive," i.e. liberal group.

George Soros' Open Society funnels big bucks into Gamaliel and its circle of associated faith-based organizations like Faith in Public Life and the Center for Community Change who also invest in Gamaliel. Here's what Stephanie's research shows:
The next question we must ask is where do Faith in Public Life and the Center for Community Change get the money to give to Gamaliel? Among their contributors is George Soros’ Open Society Institute. Faith in Public Life received two $225,000 grants from Open Society Institute in for 2009-2010. For its part, CCC received two Open Society Institute in 2008: $600,000 for “general support” and another $250,000 specifically for its Immigration Reform Movement efforts; in 2009, it received an additional $930,000. That not exactly chump change…and one can see how Faith in Public Life and CCC might have a bit left over to pass along to Gamaliel.

Of course, Gamaliel has been getting its own grants directly from the Open Society Institute - $300,000 over two years in 2008 and a second award of $300,000 beginning in 2010. The Open Society Institute, in other words, is another institutional contributor to Gamaliel, directly and, one might argue, indirectly.
So, what is George Soros’ Open Society Institute’s interest in Gamaliel - or in, for that matter, Faith in Public Life or CCC or all the other Alinskyian organizing networks it funds?

There are probably numerous answers. The Open Society Institute, fueled by George Soros’ opinions and money, is a generous funder of Catholics for a Free Choice, Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), and a host of other abortion “rights” organizations. It has also funded the United Religions Initiative (URI), which promulgates the idea that all religions and spiritual movements are equally “true” and with it the concept that the goal of the spiritual is social reform – including the principle of population control.

Gamaliel and the other faith-based Alinskyian organizing networks are right there, in among the Catholics and Evangelicals and other religious bodies that might, historically, have been expected to resist progressive positions.

The greater their entrenchment, however – the more involvement with an Alinskyian organization is seen as a legitimate expression of spiritual values – the greater the advancement of progressive ideas and policies. This is propaganda and progressive activism in one highly effective package.
As the Bible says, "Love of money is the root of all evils" and there's plenty of Soros money perverting organizations that should be working for the Lord. Many, however, are doing just the opposite. Most orthodox Catholics would hardly recognize many of its activities as remotely Christian. Satan's greatest deception is perverting the Church. To read Stephanie's complete article go here.

As the U.S Council of Bishops wrote in 1986, "No one may deny the right to organize without attacking human dignity itself."

Gamaliel’s organizing work draws on struggles for justice stretching back thousands of years and spanning many peoples, faiths, and cultures. Our work draws on Biblical scripture, Christ’s life and teaching, the Torah, Catholic social teaching, the roots of American democracy, the U.S. civil rights movement, and many other sources. Above all, our work begins and ends in an expression of our personal faith and our values.

And here's another article that shows the link between Gamaliel and the faux Catholic groups that undermine Catholic doctrine. http://catholicadvocate.com/?p=1624 They work to elect liberal politicians like Barack Obama, one of the greatest enemies of innocent unborn children ever!

If you don't want to read the entire article go to the end. It specifically links Gamaliel's former Executive Director, Alexia Kelley, to the faux Catholic group Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good. Obama also worked for Gamaliel. Do you see a pattern here?

Liberal Catholic is an oxymoron. Liberalism is a sin against the first commandment. It teaches that man is perfectable by his own power so man becomes God. That's why they preach that the end justifies the means. When you take the place of God you can make your own rules!

No one - certainly not I - has denied Gamaliel's "right to organize" but this "right" isn't absolute. It doesn't include the "right," for example, to force people unwillingly or unknowingly to be part of the Gamaliel Foundation network. Yet that is what you do. It doesn't include forcing them to support political positions in which they are in fundamental disagreement - and yort, that is what you do. It doesn't include the "right" to spread your anti-evangelical "theologies" and twists of the moral principles that form many of the institutions who are among your memebers. And yet, that is what you do.



Organize all you want but get out of my Church. You don't reflect its values. You don't belong there.

Gamaliel does have the right to organize. But they should state the TRUTH that they organize for liberal/progressive causes, partner with progressive organizations, are supported by progressive/liberal (or worse) funders... And we have the RIGHT to shine the LIGHT. In a way, what I do is "organizing" but just for the Truth. I also pray those on the left will see the light...wonder if they pray for me?

Dear "Gamaliel", thank you for providing to one and all prima facie evidence of "community-organizing" double-speak. Because my comment is too long for this little box, I invite all to peruse it at http://restore-dc-catholicism.blogspot.com/2011/02/gamaliel-foundation-displays-its-double.html
