Soccer Balls, Sanctimony and A
Billion Dollar Group Called “Baptist
Child and Family Services”…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/17/2014 11:04:13 AM

A few days ago we posted some details, and a large dose of opinion, about the latest misguided efforts of Glenn Beck’s “Bold and Sanctimonious Tour” – and a strange thing happened…. few, if any, thought our critical outline was controversial. It would appear the Patriotic U.S. Sleeping Giant is awake, at least on this issue. What follows below is a little more depth on the issue of “Faith Based” organizations and those receiving federal grants to facilitate illegal immigration. We have received numerous requests to turn the eye of research into exactly what these organizations are. Specifically, one group

Comments:
"Baptist Child & Family Services" ...that dropped "Baptist" from its name and is now just "BCFS", which stands for about nothing. A visit to their website will verify this - and yield little info about who they are. All behind a registration/password wall. No apparent connection to the Baptist church.

Oops.

Federal Charity courtesy of the U.S. Taxpayer. Is it really “charity” when the federal government is using the IRS to collect the “offering”?

I cannot tell you how much this angers me. It gives all legitimate Christian non-profits a bad name and reflects poorly on the church as a whole.

While everyone knows bad apples are found in every barrel, to find such gross impropriety under the cover of charity is more than despicable. It´s bad enough we Christians have to endure the inanities and immoralities of many TV evangelists, but to uncover this nest of vipers just adds to the piling on.

As for Glenn Beck, he may be prescient in some things, and for that he gets credit, but this latest hysterical reaction of his is just plain nutty.

Heard Michael Savage say other nite that Catholic Charities have received Two BILLION Dollars from the U.S. government. I believe him.

Several years ago, when it was discovered that Officers in Catholic Charities were Pro-Abortion, their donations from parishioners really dropped. I never donate to them anymore.

I would think if Catholic Charities became more orthodox and less progressive, that their donations would skyrocket, and they would not have to partner with the United States Government anymore.

How come some people are so selective when they complain about when churches can and cannot partner with the state?

Here is an article from the Baptist Press (published by the Southern Baptist Convention) that talks in detail about BCFS:

http://townhall.com/news/religion/2014/07/07/nonprofit-defends-care-of-child-refugees-n1859734

BCFS has been operating the facility for illegal alien invaders at Lackland AFB, the one that has received so much negative publicity for its secretive tactics.

BCFS had planned to spend $50 million of its latest $190+ million federal grant to convert the Palm Aire Resort into a facility to house more of these illegals. They backed out of this when the publicity became v. negative.

Sunlight and transparency are their enemies, apparently. Operating below the radar has been their MO. And raking in a ton of our taxpayer dollars in grants.

The payroll information alone is stunning. Usually a good place to start when evaluating "charities"..

The Feds have been financing this invasion of UAC since Obama took office- there is no surprise.
These salaries are obscene.
They funneled this money to these bureaucrats masquerading as religious charity all the while stripping MEDICARE.
HHS and DHS are enabling illegal immigration.

The govt is a thief. This needs so be sent to a reporter with liberal credentials but a brain in his/her head. Any ideas??

Absolutely a Must Read! This is scandalous.

This one organization got over $200 million in one month for illegals. The CEO makes almost $500,000. Total salaries of employees equals 33 million, completely funded by grant money (tax dollars).

I wonder what CEO´s ties are to Obama, Jarrett and the Dems.

Yes, #8.

And just who are these "employees" and how many of them are there, who are recipients of the 33 million?

One can not help but think of all the "green" companies which received billions and billions out of the so-called "Stimulus" bill... nicely lined the very deep pockets of Friends of Obama (and other Democrats).

And the Dem/Lefties are constantly screaming for more and more and more money from the struggling taxpayer.

truly sickening.

In answer to the ending question "Is this charity" ? the answer is NO - it´s big business with high paid managers. This also explains the sanctimony where charitable groups talk about charity and say nothing about the cause of the crisis as they take on the task of resettling the flood of illegal immigrants. Yes we are all so inspired by your unselfish charity. You put the rest of us to shame! /s

The invasion of our country by illegal aliens has provided a windfall for companies like BCFS.

I call it a company, because that is what it is. How a "charity" can be called "non-profit" when it pays salaries like this to its management is beyond me.

From Patheos:

After it was revealed recently that a board member of Catholic Charities in Florida was actually the same lobbyist for Planned Parenthood that said infanticide should be a matter between a woman and her doctor, this story exposes the fact that CCUSA is a dues-paying member and on the board of an organization that lobbied Congress to maintain funding for Planned Parenthood..

FREETOWN/ACCRA - Sierra Leone declared a state of emergency and called in troops to quarantine epicentres of Ebola on Thursday, joining Liberia in imposing tough controls to curb the worst ever outbreak of the virus amid fears it could spread beyond West Africa.

GAZA CITY — Israel pressed ahead with its Gaza offensive Thursday despite international pressure, calling up another 16,000 reservists, after some of the fiercest days of fighting in the 23-day old war that has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis. Witnesses reported continued airstrikes and shelling overnight from Israeli forces on the tiny Palestinian seaside enclave, which is run by the militant Islamist group Hamas. And rockets from Gaza continued to be fired into Israel through the night Wednesday and early Thursday morning. Israel’s new call-up, which brings the number of reserves summoned to 86,000, came

Liberia´s government has announced that it is closing down all schools across the country to stop the spread of the deadly Ebola virus. Some communities would be placed under quarantine as well, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said. Non-essential government workers will be sent home for 30 days and the army deployed to enforce the measures. The number of people killed by the virus in West Africa has now reached 672, according to new UN figures.

Ramallah—The Egyptian government has called on the Palestinian Authority and Hamas to unify their stance on the Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire initiative to end the fighting in Gaza ahead of a forthcoming meeting in Cairo. A senior Palestinian official, speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said that Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi had informed his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas that the joint Palestinian delegation set to visit Cairo to discuss the Egyptian initiative should include representatives of both Hamas and Fatah and “adopt a unified stance.” Palestinian Authority President Abbas is expected

John Kerry should take a lesson from Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. El-Sisi is not messing around with the construct of a peace deal until the Palestinian Authority and Hamas define their own association. In essence El-Sisi cuts to the heart of the matter and tells Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that conversations about any cease fire are ridiculous when Abbas cannot control Hamas.Common sense would tell you it’s impossible to negotiate a temporary peace agreement without the actual people fighting agreeing to a cease-fire. Therefore El-Sisi tells Abbas until he gets control of Hamas, and actually gets Hamas to agree to

The catechism of an "indispensable partnership" with India that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry repeated during the course of a rambling 5000-word speech on Tuesday cannot cover up the loss of faith that has crept into the relationship between the two countries. Kerry was speaking at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. hours before his departure for New Delhi as the head of the U.S. delegation in its fifth annual Strategic Dialogue with India. Even without the added obstacle of having to reach out to an Indian leader that it had visibly snubbed for nearly a decade,

The idea that one of Hamas’ main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why aren’t reporters in Gaza ferreting it out? The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoop—the kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk. So why isn’t the fact that Hamas uses Shifa Hospital as a command post making headlines?

Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey.

Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs.

It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,
