Bottom Line up Front: Think twice before responding to the item entitled Proposed Virginia Budget Amendment to Protect Impoverished Families” on page 3 of Bulletin 2017-01-22. We are not saying that there is anything right or wrong with the initiative. We are saying that there are better places than Social Action Linking Together (SALT) to get information based on “Catholic Social Justice Principles.”
Why think twice? SALT claims to operate according to “Catholic Social Justice Principles.” Yet, John Horejsi of SALT (the same John Horejsi noted in St. Peter’s Bulletin 2017-01-22) was quite comfortable participating on the Local Host Committee for the International Drug Policy Reform Conference Program & Agenda held November 18 – 21, 2015 in Washington, D.C. Apparently, SALT has no problem joining forces with the Open Society Foundations (read George Soros) and NORML. My wife and I are trying to figure out how “Catholic Social Justice Principles” coincide with NORML’s purpose for existence: “NORML’s mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults …”
And where is SALT getting it’s training in “Catholic Social Justice Principles”? From none other than the alleged Catholic nun Simone Campbell.
You may not have read the few items we’ve posted in the past about Sr. Campbell and her relationship with St. Charles Borromeo Parish and its former and our now current Pastor. Rather than make you read old material, here’s an item we haven’t shown you before. It was posted for all the St. Charles parishioners and interested parties to read. I’ve purposely deleted the name of the originator.
St. Charles Advocacy Supplement — Nun from the Bus Is Coming!
I thought that you might be interested to know that eight days from now, the keynote speaker at SALT’s advocacy conference in Fairfax will be Sister Simone Campbell, one of the “Nuns on the Bus” who toured the country last summer to advocate for government spending decisions that reflect concern for the poor and vulnerable.
SALT — Social Action Linking Together — is an advocacy network in the Diocese of Arlington that works to influence public policy and legislation, particularly at the state and local levels, with the teachings of the Gospel and the Catholic Church.
More information about the conference is below.
Please email me (…) if you can offer a ride to others or if you would like a ride. We will do what we can to help those interested in going get out to the Dunn Loring/Vienna area from Arlandria (sic).

There is more, but why belabor the point? As we said For the Sheep in Exile – Bulletin-2017-01-22:
“Father must have been hanging around with some of his old SJW crowd again. Will he ever let it go?”
