Michael Voris, the voice behind of The Vortex – a hard-hitting traditional Catholic commentary on the Internet, is calling outright for truly faithful Catholics to stop dropping their hard-earned money – coins, folding money and checks – in the collection plate as a form of protest against the creeping liberalization of the Catholic Church. He is fed up with gay parishes, the closing of churches, and the decline of an authentic Catholic spiritual life.

"Simply stop giving your money to the Establishment Church," he wrote in his June 16 Vortex episode. "Forget the diocesan pledge drives, forget the so-called social justice initiatives, like CRS (Catholic Relief Services) and CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development). Let them get their money from the government, whose interests they serve over and above the Church’s anyway ... Giving the Establishment Church, and any group that supports it, is like enabling an alcoholic."

What got Voris' dander up was his growing awareness that the Catholic Archdiocese of New York, under the leadership of Timothy Cardinal Dolan York (XIII New York), is about to announce its latest round of church closings and parish yokings.
