"Saul in the Family" - Alinsky and the Archdiocese of Portland

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.          Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals
There is a spiritual cancer in the Archdiocese of Portland that, being left unchecked by faithful laity, threatens to ruin many souls.  It is called Metropolitan Alliance for the Common Good (MACG).

MACG is given life by
Oregon Catholic churches that will not allow true Catholic teachings as the main focal point, but welcomes evil as truth.  The affiliations are anti-Catholic, pro-homosexual and an occasion of mortal sin for all involved.

Saul Alinsky is their pope.  Benedict the XVI is obsolete.


MACG began as Fair Share Research and Education Fund (FSRE) a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1981 as a supporting organization of Oregon Fair Share. When Oregon Fair Share closed in 1997 and morphed into being part of Fair Share Alliance.  FSRE affiliated with Fair Share Research and Education Fund does business as the Oregon Action Fund, a name that more explicitly demonstrates the link between the Oregon Action Fund/Fair Share Research and Education Fund


Oregon Action, supports its work, which carries on the tradition of chapter-based, multi-issue grassroots organizing in Oregon.
Oregon Action has received tens of thousands of dollars throughout the years from Oregon Catholics through Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD)
Oregon Action affiliations:
Oregon Action is a member of...
Oregon Action Works with:
Oregon Action is assisted by...             
These are mostly 501 C-3 Organizations that receive tax money from us too.  We still fund many of these organizations and have for years through CCHD and our Sunday collections.


Portland Organizing Project (POP) was next in line - Given $60,000 from Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) to this Alinsky-based organization using the Church as a cash cow.

Metropolitan Broad Base came after POP


MACG was founded on May 23, 2002
came after Metropolitan Broad Base. (Info in link above)

MACG - who we are.  Bringing IAF into Oregon Catholic Churches.

Saul Alinksy's Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) was the foundation for 80+ groups that were funded by the Catholic church.
"The leaders and organizers of the Industrial Areas Foundation build organizations whose primary purpose is power - the ability to act - and whose chief product is equitable social change. The IAF is non-ideological and strictly non-partisan, but proudly, publicly, and persistently political. Through local affiliates, the IAF builds a political base among voluntary institutions that includes religious congregations, labor locals, homeowner groups, recovery groups, parents associations, non-profits, immigrant societies, schools, seminaries, orders of men and women religious, and others. "
Among the most vital tenets of Alinsky’s method were the following:
  • “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more live up to their own rules than the Christian Church can live up to Christianity.”[75]
  • “No organization, including organized religion, can live up to the letter of its own book. You can club them to death with their ‘book’ of rules and regulations.”[76]
Monsignor Jack Egan helped establish the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, which funded ACORN, Gamaliel (President Barack Obama trained as a community organizer with Gamaliel in the 1980′s), and the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), established by Alinsky. Egan sat on the IAF board and Call to Action's.
  "Make up your mind, Jack," Alinsky said, "whether you want to be a priest or a bishop. All other decisions will flow from that one."

One common denominator of this great evil is "Chicago".  Many of the staff of the Archdiocese of Portland are from Chicago and know Alinsky quite well and seem to have chosen Al over the Pope. 

Pope Benedict XVI - "we don't listen to God because it would disturb us and so we remain indifferent to evil". ..

A good job on accounting! The Chicago bunch is a bunch of thieves. No wonder we are always losing. They have all the money. Keep it up. We are winning, although in small increments.

Hugs and kisses

Thanks Barbara..the worm is turning.

Wow! Satan the coward! He hides behind these organizations using sacred monies. If we, the Catholic Church can not give money in Jesus' name w/o hiding behind some evil agenda's idea of good, then we ought not be giving money! It is a 'tell tale' sign to me that something isn't right when the Catholic Church's name is not in the forefront. There has to be NO middle man and it has to be in Jesus' name or there is reason for cover up! So, the Judas' within use sacred money and give it to Satan. What the hell is in it for them, that is the million dollar question??!!

Thank-you Carolyn for all your dedication and hard work! You are a true Christian. I wonder when the Pope is going to take action....this can not continue. Our priest, Fr. Don Buxman is big on MACG at Christ the King Parish. Shall I send this letter to him? He doesn't answer or reply. But, I am thinking it would be good for his conscience and maybe he needs the dots connected again!

God bless you!

Love for the Church and respect for his priests cannot blind us to the Truth. They are drinking the kool-aid.

Thanks, it's a pleasure.

Dear Carolyn,
THANK YOU so much for this model of courage! I really appreciate it ALOT, what you
and Bill and Nina are doing. It is not in vain! God will turn things around in His way
and if we keep believing.

You can bet what my Divine Mercy Sunday prayer will be, that the intense darkness in
this archdiocese will be lifted and that that virute and goodness will reign again as once
it did not so long ago!

It is like the Grotto and that labyrinth. Well, that labyrinth is there for one purpose, to attract new agers and make them think the Grotto is cool, but that doesn't change the holiness of the Grotto although it does cast a shadow upon it.

I consider it more than a sanctuary. It is a refuge amidst the extreme darkness in this archdiocese. The efforts to undermine that holiness has not prevailed thank goodness!
Holy Rosary is like that too, an island amidst a sea of darkness.

But the younger priests are not of the mindset of Father Buckley and Duffner and when they are gone it will not be the same unless people pray that the younger priests honor those old ways.
Anyway, I still get little healing just from going to the Grotto and lighting candles for
people, but ironically it's a good idea to light candles for the Grotto as well.

God is good in that He allows some light to prevail but it's important to appreciate the fact and pray that this oppression lifts.

I hope others will offer their Divine Mercy Sunday request for Portland and for a new age in this archdiocese and I don't mean 'new age' new age!

Thanks again!!!!

Your prayer suggestion is a great one. There is so much to be lifted up to the Lord to knock some sense into His priests, religious and people that work for the Church.

They have gone rogue with POWER not love for Christ. Prayers are the only way to at least change our perspective on this. They seem so callous to anyone but liberals.
