Ever vigilant, the folks over at Cleansing Fire have caught DOR in another instance of disinformation or - in this case - destruction of information.
When the section dealing with the 2009-10 CMA first went up on dor.org there was a page letting the potential donor know exactly what percentage of his or her contribution would go to various ministries and services.
That page has now disappeared and has been replaced by one that looks to have been pasted together in a real hurry, as one paragraph and a collection of 10 bullet points are simply repeated verbatim within a short span of text (see here).
Cleansing Fire, however, captured a screen shot of the original page before it was cast into the digital dustbin and that image is available on their site.
Google also captured the original page, cached it, and has made it available here.
Finally, to provide one more source of this data, the original 2009-10 CMA allocation data - complete with dor.org links - is repeated below:
2009-2010 CMA Allocations
Catholic Schools 5%
Support for programs, aid to students and schools
Catholic Charities 13%
Support for the 10 regional offices / agencies serving people throughout our 12 counties.
Bishop's Ministry / Pastoral Planning 10%
Bishop's Office, consultative councils and planning services
Diocesan-wide Administrative & Support Services 19%
Hospital Chaplaincy, Stewardship, Finance, Information Technology, etc.
Pastoral Center Operation & Services 15%
Operational and system costs of the diocesan offices
CMA Campaign Costs 6%
Campaign staff, materials, data processing and postage
Total Goal: $5,490,000
Now the question is, why doesn't DOR want its CMA contributors to know how much of their money is going to which ministries and services?
