President Obama’s HHS mandate and “accommodation,” derive from Page 94 of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”

(Updated September 27, 2012) President Obama’s idea for the HHS mandate and “accommodation” (see video and transcript of President Obama’s “Accommodation speech”) comes from page 94 of Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals.  See excerpt below:

I have always believed that birth control and abortion are personal rights to be exercised by the individual.  If, in my early days when I organized the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago, which was 95 per cent Roman Catholic, I had tried to communicate this, even through the experience of the residents, whose economic plight was aggravated by large families, that would have been the end of my relationship with the community.  That instant I would have been stamped as an enemy of the Church and all communication would have ceased.  Some years later, after establishing solid relationships, I was free to talk about anything, including birth control.  I remember discussing it with the then Catholic Chancellor.  By then the argument was no longer limited to such questions as, “HOW MUCH LONGER DO YOU THINK THE CATHOLIC CHURCH CAN HANG ON TO THIS ARCHAIC NOTION AND STILL SURVIVE?””

– Page 94 of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky

According to President Obama’s actions, the Church cannot hold onto its beliefs and survive in the United States he is remaking.  The Church must submit to the archaic notions of atheism and totalitarianism held by Saul Alinsky (and his followers) and Barack Obama or it will be made to suffer and face extinction.  Though President Obama is unaware that he cannot defeat the Church, he does know he has a fight on his hands because we have said, “We will not comply!”

Keep in mind, President Obama was the executive director and lead organizer of the Developing Communities Project (DCP) in Chicago, Illinois (Obama is acknowledged by DCP in this link.)  DCP was an affiliate of Gamaliel Foundation, an organization that spun off of Saul Alinsky’s, Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF.)  The President of the United States is a student of Alinsky’s methods.  The Holy Father called out his radicalism (click here.)  The President is a radical.

Pray for President Obama, that he will abandon his radical, atheistic and totalitarian methods.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.

Warn Lutherans about Alinsky inspired community organizing in their churches

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has a page on its website that shows where to find “community organizing congregations.”

Click on the link below:

http://www.elca.org/Our-Faith-In-Action/Justice/Congregation-based-Organizing/Search-for-Community-Organizing-Congregations.aspx

Four of the same Alinsky inspired community organizations that we find in our Catholic churches are found in Lutheran churches.  They are DART, Gamaliel, IAF and PICO.

Forward this to your Lutheran friends.

NEW: Locations of Alinsky Inspired Community Organizations in the United States Listed by State

The attached list is of Alinsky inspired “socialist” community organizations in the United States.  This list is arranged in state order so it is easier for you to find these organizations.  The list is converted from an excel spreadsheet that is 34 pages in length.

Our other location lists are below:

  1. HERE
  2. HERE

This new list is organized by state and then shows where any of the following six national Alinsky inspired community organization’s affiliates reside inside them:

1.  Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF)  www.industrialareasfoundation.org

2.  Gamaliel  www.gamaliel.org

3.  People Improving Communities through Organizing (PICO)  www.piconetwork.org

4.  Direct Action & Research Training (DART)  www.thedartcenter.org

5.  Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ)  www.iwj.org

6.  USAction (aka Citizen Action)  www.usaction.org

All six of the above organizations are not in every state.  If you find one of these organizations where you live then try the Oklahoma City Method to remove them from your parish and diocese.  Scroll down to find your state and scroll to the bottom of this post to SHARE on Facebook, Twitter and by email.

Let me know if this list is incomplete.  Some affiliates of the six national organizations keep a low profile and consider themselves under formation making them hard to find.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.

4th Wrong of Alinsky Organizing is Ridicule

Finally, ridicule.  Not only do Alinsky’s modern day groups use ridicule to attack defenders of the Catholic church’s truth, they ridicule the Church itself.  Just as Saul Alinsky did.  See the excerpt on page 128 of Rules for Radicals:

Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.  You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity… Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon… A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.  Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time, after which it becomes a ritualistic commitment, like going to church on Sunday mornings.”

Alinsky demonstrates a desire through ridicule to lead people away from truth and to fill them with doubt.  Compare his words to those of the Catechism of the Catholic Church 2483.

2483 “Lying is the most direct offense against the truth. To lie is to speak or act against the truth in order to lead someone into error.  By injuring man’s relation to truth and to his neighbor, a lie offends against the fundamental relation of man and of his word to the Lord.”

Moral relativism, manipulation, deception and ridicule are four wrongs used against our Church and her people by socialist community organizations.  Be alert and be watchful for organizing groups that want your parish to join them.

Socialist (Saul Alinsky-Inspired) Community Organizations Are Manipulating Catholic Voters

(Updated September 26, 2012) Socialist community organizations are manipulating Catholics.  They want your vote.  This is a major problem we Catholics face today.  Here are some points to know:

  • Socialist community organizations have entered Catholic churches across America for many years now.  One such organization is the Industrial Areas Foundation (founded by Saul Alinsky) that has sub-chapters in several dioceses.  The sub-chapters take different names than the main organization.  Other socialist community organizations cover the rest of the U.S.  Click here for the list of socialist community organizations in the United States.  There are more organizations that fall into this category not listed in the link.
  • These groups have manipulated Catholic Social Teaching’s (CST) terminology to be euphemisms (Isaiah 5:20) for collectivism, centralized planning and Socialism.  Thus, manipulating Catholic clergy, religious sisters and laity into their organization to work to implement socialistic programs and ideas into their communities and parishes.  Some of the manipulators are clergy, religious sisters and laity.
  • The Catholic Social Teaching terms that these organizations manipulate and abuse are:
    • Pro-Life
    • Human dignity
    • Social justice
    • Common good
    • Preferential option for the poor
    • Care for God’s creation
    • Solidarity
    • Subsidiarity (They don’t seem to be familiar with this term but, they may start) (The principle of subsidiarity is defined as:  A community of a higher order should not interfere in the internal life of a community of a lower order.)
  • These groups manipulate the clergy, religious sisters and laity to accept socialistic views as Catholic views (a contradictory proposition) because they use Catholic terms when speaking to them.  Catholics don’t expect to be deceived like this from trusted authorities, so many fall for it.  The manipulators were told how to deceive the Church on page 94 of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (Click here.)  This tactic makes the deceived Catholic comfortable enough to vote contrary to a fully formed Catholic conscience and the truth.
  • The manipulation of CST terms and the presence of these groups in the churches has contributed to Catholics holding dissenting views from the Church and voting for politicians who reject much of Catholic Social Teaching.
  • Whoever wins the Catholic vote wins the national popular vote and almost certainly the electoral college and the presidency.

Catholic lay people must know that our Church rejects collectivism, centralized planning and socialism based on the commandment, “Thou shalt not steal” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, (CCC) sections 1883, 1885, 2425 and 2499.)  Therefore, the Church rejects these efforts to manipulate its social teachings.  We must all work to save our Church from the error of socialism.  In doing this work, Catholics will vote with a more properly formed conscience.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.
