Is Catholics in Alliance gone for good?

Jack Smith at the Catholic Key blog is reporting that pro-Obama group Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good appears to be “out of business.” He cites the evidence from their Web site:

They’ve had no blog posts since June 10.

They’ve made no tweets since May 12.

They haven’t posted to their own facebook page since May 12.

Their calendar page is blank.

Their staff bio page is blank.

Their media guy, John Gehring, is now working for Faith in Public Life.

But why rely on circumstantial evidence? I decided to just give them a call. The phone number has been disconnected.

Times are hard for all non-profits. The closing of Catholics in Alliance signifies this fact and nothing else. This pro-abortion, pro-Obama Catholic group is merely merging, for the time being, into Faith in Public Life. 

Catholics United, Catholics for Choice, Catholic Democrats, and the American Catholic Council are all alive and well to further the mission of the Catholic left to deliver Catholics into the arms of the secularists and the Democratic Party.

    I never heard of them. Pehaps they had some minor influence on the 2008 Presidential election, but not very much. Obama won the election due to the gross incompetence of George W. Bush. Now we have the gross incompetence of Barack Obama. From bad to worse.

    #1 Marxism Masquerading as Social Justice
    This is what most characterizes the groups you cite, Deal.

    #2 I would disagree that Obama is incompetent. That is what has made his governance so despicably frightening. He has effectively begun to unravel the Constitution is all respects, and while doing so has destroyed our economy.

    Don’t worry, Mr. Hudson. You’re doing just as good a job running Catholics out of the Church. By negative implication, I assume good Catholics should do everything they can to ensure that their fellow Church members run into the arms of the Republican Party instead?
