Bill Donohue's "Charity" is Mostly Himself
No surprise that the man has no problem with Wuerl's lavish lifestyle. He has his own personal "charity" to feather his nest. How many of those contributing to the Catholic League make anywhere near that kind of moolah?
I used to support the Catholic League when it was run by its founder Fr. Virgil Blum, S.J. who was president from 1973 until 1989. Where did he live? In a room at Marquette University. Then Bill moved the Catholic League to New York City and started promoting himself. The kicker for me came when I saw him in a "debate" about abortion browbeating and yelling at an attractive pro-abort woman. My reaction? He should have found the prettiest young pro-life woman in town, maybe on his own staff, someone like Lila Rose to go on the TV show. But that would have deprived him of a moment in the "sun" under the TV lights.
No, I don't support the Catholic League. I have better things to do with my money -- like defend Aden Hailu and other vulnerable individuals in danger of murder by the culture of death. In fact, I hope you boycotted the CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development) collection today. Why not use that money instead at Aden's page and put a donation in the "basket" to help her family get her moved to a safe location. Her story is getting more and more typical around the country as U.S. medicine is transformed from patient oriented to cost/benefit oriented.
Now wouldn't it be nice if some of those big bucks Bill is collecting went for that?
Think about it. How much is your life worth? A lot to you and your family; not so much to the number crunchers who would rather kill you than treat you. As for Bill Donohue...well....
