DETROIT FREE PRESS BASHES CATHOLICS

September 27, 2000

Yesterday’s edition of the Detroit Free Press ran a cartoon by Mike Thompson on the subject of vouchers that was blatantly anti-Catholic.  All six cells ridiculed school vouchers, but it was the last one that crossed the line with Catholics.   In reference to a “Vouch-O-Matic” machine that destroys the constitution, sucks millions out of public... [Read more...]

FEDS EYE PRO-LIFERS

September 26, 2000

Over the summer, it was learned that the Clinton administration has been compiling files on various pro-family and pro-life groups.  Included on the list is the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB).

THE ROAD MOST TRAVELED: FROM BOB JONES UNIVERSITY TO THE PLAYBOY MANSION

September 26, 2000

William A. Donohue In February we objected to George W. Bush’s visit to Bob Jones University.  Six months later we objected to Al Gore’s refusal to stop a fund-raising event at the Playboy Mansion.  Subsequently, Bush made a public statement of regret regarding his handling of the Bob Jones matter and Gore saw to it that the Playboy event was... [Read more...]

HOW THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE GOT GORE TO CANCEL THE “GORGY”

September 26, 2000

1.     Our first move was the letter Donohue sent to Gore on July 31. 2.     Our second move was a news release of August 2 that showed how two-faced Sanchez is: she complained about George W. Bush speaking at Bob Jones University but this didn’t stop her from arranging the “Gorgy” on the Feast of the Assumption. 3.     Our third move... [Read more...]

“POLITICALLY INCORRECT” IS ANYTHING BUT

September 26, 2000

If ever there were a misnomer of TV show, it is “Politically Incorrect.”  What host Bill Maher does night after night is rip the Catholic Church, which is anything but a politically incorrect thing to do.  Indeed, if he were to praise the Church, that would be politically incorrect. The edition of “Politically Incorrect” that aired August... [Read more...]

CHANGING THE CULTURE

September 26, 2000

It was almost a year ago that we protested the vile, obscene and anti-Catholic “Sensation” exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Arts.  As a result of all the attention, a reporter for the New York Times, David Barstow, got curious and started to probe around a bit looking for information how this exhibition came to be.  What he found was a tale... [Read more...]

“SOUTH PARK” REACHES A NEW LOW

September 26, 2000

The Comedy Central show, “South Park,” has a record of Catholic bashing, but no episode was worse than the one that aired on July 19 (it was repeated on July 22).  The basic plot of this show centered on a priest who tells children they will burn in hell unless they confess and “eat the crackers” (read: Holy Communion).   During the course... [Read more...]

DONOHUE AVOWS NOT TO SEE “AVOW”

September 26, 2000

A new Off-Broadway play that insults Catholicism opened to negative reviews this past summer.  “Avow” is the work of Bill C. Davis and it centers on a radical priest who refuses to bless a homosexual union; the priest eventually has his celibacy tested when he falls in love with the sister of one of the gay men (she is pregnant out of wedlock). When... [Read more...]

ACLU’S PROBLEM WITH GOD

September 26, 2000

The summer of 2000 was not a good one for the ACLU.  On at least three occasions, the ACLU demonstrated once again that it has a problem with God.  Consider the following. When a new law took effect in Virginia on July 1 requiring public schools to begin each day with a minute of silence, the ACLU screamed foul play.  Under the new law, student would... [Read more...]

TELL US MORE, AL

September 26, 2000

A reporter for the New York Times recently joined Al Gore at an informal dinner party in a New York hotel.  Unaccompanied by his aides, the vice president opened up a bit, admitting that he has been guilty of pandering to Catholics.  Pandering, of course, is hardly a distinguishing characteristic for a politician.  But what was revealing about... [Read more...]
