Yet Another Self-Proclaimed "Catholic" & Obama Supporter Receives Distinguished Government Position


by: Georgia Kijesky

The number of Catholic dissentors honored by President Obama keeps increasing by the day.

Alexia Kelley, Executive Director of "Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good,” one of the pro-Obama Catholic organizations that strongly supported the appointment of the former Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), has been named Director of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships for the HHS.

Although she is dubbed as an "antiabortion advocate" by many, her record is evidence to the contrary.

Catholic News Agency reports Kelley co-founded Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG) in 2005 and co-authored with Chris Korzen, Executive Director of Catholics United, "A Nation for All: How the Catholic Vision of the Common Good Can Save America from the Politics of Division."

Both Kelley and Korzen have supported controversial political decisions and appointments made by the Obama administration, including the suspension of the Mexico City Policy and the decision to allow federally-funded embryonic stem cell research. Kelley and Korzen lent their support despite both measures drawing criticism from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The pair of political activists also created the website www.catholicsforsebelius.org to promote the confirmation of the radical pro-abortion Catholic Kathleen Sebelius, and close friend of slain late-term abortionist, Dr. George Tiller, as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The campaign was conducted in spite of the fact that Sebelius' own bishop, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, asked her to refrain from receiving Holy Communion because of her support for abortion. Kelley and Korzen contended that while Sebelius is pro-choice, “she is personally opposed to abortion and has worked to reduce the number of abortions in the very red state where she, a pro-choice Democrat, was elected twice as governor.”

Despite all of this evidence, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG)webpage states that it,

"promotes a consistent ethic of life that honors the sacred dignity of the human person, born and unborn,"

and

"believe[s] the right to life is foundational in any just society and work[s] to promote bipartisan, common-ground solutions to preventing the tragedy of abortion [and opposes efforts to] undermine reasonable restrictions on abortion such as waiting periods and parental notification."

In a statement issued on Thursday, CACG congratulated Kelley “on this distinguished appointment,” and offered its “deepest appreciation for her tireless service to Catholics in Alliance over the past several years.”

“In her new position, Kelley will play a critical role empowering faith communities across the nation to advance a bold agenda for health care reform that ensures all American families have the affordable and quality care they deserve. Inspired by our faith’s teaching that health care is a human right central to serving the common good, Catholics will continue to be front and center in this critical effort,” the statement says.

Vicky Kovari, the National Field Director for Catholics in Alliance, has been named Interim Executive Director.

“At a time when millions lack health care, immigrants are often demonized as ‘aliens’ and the silent genocide of poverty shames a nation committed to equal opportunity, our core mission remains as vital as ever,” Kovari said.

She also addressed the issue of abortion, saying, “We are also poised to make real progress on preventing and reducing abortion. We are committed to finding common ground on this critical issue.”

Ms. Kelley is in good company at HHS, and has the blessing of her boss, President Obama, to lay the bricks of "contraception" that will inevitably be used to pave the "common ground" they are all looking for.
