LETTER: Ritter should repent for diverting funds to Planned Parenthood

Author: - May 4, 2012 - Updated: May 4, 2012

Dear Editor,

“How can a man give better than to give to a bureaucracy (CCHD = Catholic Campaign for Human Development) two time zones removed, which then gives the money to an unmonitored organization also two time zones away, which further laterals it to a community organizer, who spends it on causes unknown?” says ex-Gov. Ritter (Denver Post, 5/1/12) whilst trumpeting his so-called catholicity.

Rather, should we not give the bulk of our charitable gifts to local organizations whose records we know, as recommended to us by Archbishop Chaput some years ago?

Should not Bill Ritter publicly repent for his under-the-table and illegal diversion of state extracted revenues to Planned Parenthood, the largest single provider of abortions in the nation?

How much of a dent in national (or local) poverty has CCHD actually made?

Should not B. Ritter meditate on ‘the Parable of the Publican and the Pharisee (Lk 18:9-14)’ and emulate the former rather than imitate the latter?
