If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?James 2:15-16 (KJV)

CCV is Useless
Citizens for Community Values has been traditionally recognized as a organization which helps to promote family values by informing people of the positions of candidates running for office, supporting good legislation, and helping people overcome sexual addictions. I was disappointed that they stopped showing the answers to candidate survey questions to the public and instead they just give a list of endorsements. They are supposed to pro-life, but they endorse candidates who have voted for Title X federal funding of Planned Parenthood.
I showed up at the CCV banquet last week. I did not have a ticket, but I stood outside the banquet hall soliciting the attendees for their signature for the Ohio Personhood Amendment. After getting about 15 signatures, someone from CCV asked me to leave. “We don’t allow anything like that at the banquet,” she said. The attendees all went down to the banquet to salivate over the likes of Gary Bauer and “Title X” Rick (I don’t know if Santorum actually showed or not) while their eating their $60 dinner, but I am not allowed to get signatures at the entryway because it’s “too political”. I might have endangered their precious 501(c)(3) status, but their support for the Heartbeat Bill, that inferior compromise which would allow thousands babies to continue to be murdered in
every year, is somehow not such a problem.
CCV may still do some good things and I have given them contributions in the past. But I will never do it again. As far as I’m concerned they are mainly all bark and no bite.
